Of course I can. Here you have two posts from my blog (with comments in Spanish):

When Pavarotti sang like that he was the best tenor in the world.

Well -- what a glorious recording! I can't thank you enough. As you say, it defies description. The whole thing.

I have taken the sound from the video to FLAC. It just means that I can play it easily through my hi-fi. I'm happy to post the file here if you have no objection and if anyone is interested in having it.

I saw him a couple of times -- Rodolfo and Indomineo. Both unforgettable.

I will happily download it too! It's not a comercial recording so I presume that won't cause problems.
When did you see the Pav? I guess the "Idomeneo" was at the MET.
I'm not an native English speaker, so please feel free to let me know if I'm not expressing myself clearly.

Ha -- I saw him in in San Francisco with the Puccini -- late in his career (1990s). And The Mozart was at the Met.

Here's the FLAC

I think it's hard to sing Liszt -- you need to combine refinement and total frankness. That seems to me exactly what Pavi can do.  Another singer who I love in Liszt is Thomas Hampson -- there's a fine selection on a CD with some Wagner and Berlioz. Here is in an an astonishing performance of La Tombe et la Rose

There are a couple of oldies I love too. I think that this performance of O komm 'im Traum by Joseph Schwarz is interesting for its intensity

And this extremely early performance of a couple of Liszt songs by Karl Erb will not be to everyone's taste -- the timbre, you know. But I love it:

But really Hampson and Pavi are my favourites
