“Caro mio ben” is a standard from the beginning singer’s 24 Italian Songs and Arias. It is attributed to Giuseppe Giordani (1744-1798). Here is mezzo Cecilia Bartoli singing her rendition in June 1998 with Jean Yves Thibaudet on piano.

This version is by tenor Luciano Pavarotti from a 1978 recital with John Wustman accompanying.
