Product Description

Have yourself a warm, sophisticated Christmas with the Three Tenors as they cradle the classics with their magnificient voices. Cantique de noel (O Holy Night); Ave Maria, Dolce Maria; Oh Tannenbaum; White Christmas, and more.

Amazon.com

Resplendent in voice and manner, José Carreras, Placido Domingo, and Luciano Pavarotti deliver 21 songs of traditional sacred music and secular numbers in a remarkable 1999 live recording from the opulent Viennese concert hall (Konzerthaus), with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and a renowned choir. The Three Tenors are practically as famous as the faces of Mount Rushmore and inspire perhaps even more awe and adulation around the world than the four presidents. The performances--whether alone, in tandem, or simply as the threesome that has made them collectively famous--are generally impeccable for their passion, nuance, and sheer tour de force vocal artistry. Reaching often into the classical realm for such works as the traditional German carol "Susani," Strauss's and Brahms's "Wiegenlied," plus traditional Polish and Spanish pieces, the trio also visits Pavarotti's "Ave Maria, dolce Maria" (cowritten with Vittoriano Benvenuti), and "Un nuevo siglo," written by Domingo's son. Only John Lennon and Yoko Ono's "Happy Christmas/War Is Over" doesn't quite work in this grand setting. --Martin Keller

Customer Reviews

I would recommend this as an addition to any collection of Christmas music.
Elizabeth Olmsted
I am hoping that there will be another Three Tenors performance in 2002 after the World Soccer Championships.; we can only hope.
RODNEY TRIPP
For any other holiday music, just listen to your local radio station that plays it during December.

I had already purchased the VHS and received the CD as a gift. This CD is a great addition to add to your collection if you are a Three Tenor's fan. The selections are mixed with pieces from various countries. However, the English selections I would have prefered Carreras and Domingo. I find Pavarotti not to be his best in this language.
All three gave 100 % however, I would have enjoyed more individual performances than the program that was chosen.
My favorite selections were Dormi O Bambino, Carol of the Drum, and Adeste Fideles. The John Lennon selection Happy Christmas/War is Over I have to get use to.
Overall it is great holiday music to listen to when you cannot watch them on the VHS or DVD.

First, let me state I don't listen to opera singers that much; thus, don't expect a hypercritical review here. (Really, is there ANY field of music that has more hypercritics than opera?) I got this CD simply because Columbia House had it on sale for $2.99, and I wanted some new Christmas CDs.

I found the CD delightful beyond words. It has some beautiful versions of well-known Christmas songs, as well as songs I've never heard before. "Carol of the Drum" and "War Is Over" are my two favorites, with "Sleigh Ride" a close third.

Sure, there is some tripping over of words by these three great opera stars...but that makes it even more enhancing in my opinion. Pavarotti was particularly amusing when he was singing: "And all our friends are calling 'HOO-HOO'!" (Watch the DVD for Carreras' reaction to that one!) And let's not forget Pavarotti singing: "I'll be home for Christmas. You can PLAY on me."

The children's chorus is great, the Vienna Symphony is great...and, once again, buy or rent the DVD so you can get the full affect of this astounding Christmas concert...the music, the lights, the colors, and the marvelous Steven Mercurio conducting it all.

An avid fan of the the 3 Tenors format and the tenors themselves, I was a little disappointed in this long overdue production of Christmas Music. While many of the more cherished traditional numbers (Ave Maria, Silent Night, etc.) brought a warmth and gratitude for the these men and their talent, some of the other offerings were less than expected. The Jingle Bells arrangement can only be categorized as "a waste of great talent." If you are a fan and have seen the video, then you must get the CD. The CD's producers obviously "assisted" the recordings compared to the video's poor presentation. Mr. Pavarotti shows some weakness in what is normally his forte -- power. Mr. Carreras seems to attempt a "coloring" of his vocal talent when normally his diction and technique are beyond any dispute. Only Mr. Domingo shows his emotional warmth and strength as well as his command of the English idiom. For Christmas music "philes", this CD is still a must have. And for those 3 Tenor fans, this could well be the last to have.

Anyone who is a fan of The Three Tenors will find this CD indispensable. I share other reviewers' concerns about the inaccuracy of Pavarotti's English, and I would add his German is not that much better. The recording is quite rich and well detailed, although as mentioned elsewhere the singing has too much forte and not enough mezzo voce. The orchestral playing of the Vienna Symphony is respectable as is the conducting of Steven Mercurio. The contributions of the Gumpoldskirchner Spatzen Children's Choir are very distinguished indeed and quite a pleasant surprise.
I was somewhat dissapointed with the very minimal documentation in this recording, which has little more than several photos of the Tenors in various parts of the Vienna Konzerthaus. Considering the price of this issue there should have been some translations of the songs which were not rendered in English. I also feel the performance of John Lennon's Happy Christmas, done in an arioso style with a rather questionable orchestral arrangement, did not add to the progamme but rather detracted from it. It was regrettable that track was not performed solely by the excellent choir.
Taken as a whole, it remains an enjoyable issue.

This album is not as good as it could have been. My friend from New York mentions below that Pavarotti's English is not that great. Well, my friend is being a little too polite. Pavarotti's English is actually awful on the really well known pieces like "White Christmas" and "I'll be Home for Christmas". In addition, all three tenors are often guilty of singing too loudly on what are supposed to be more intimate Christmas songs. Carreras sings much too loudly on "The Little Drummer Boy" and Pavarotti's exclamatory singing at the end of "White Christmas" is particularly hard to take. It is also unfortunate that they chose to perform some very new material - written by the likes of Lennon/Ono, Domingo Jr., and even a piece co-written by Pavarotti himself(!) - instead of a few more old favourites. The best performances on this disc, in my view, are "Sleigh Ride" and "Felice Navidad". Both are performed with great panache and enthusiasm - a bit like their performance of "Singin' in the Rain" at the 1994 Los Angeles concert. Yet, even here, there are problems with pronunciation and the voices not melding together effectively in ensemble. Also, on "Felice Navidad", which comes at the end of the concert, the 64 yr.-old Pavarotti sounds almost out of breath. On the whole this isn't a bad disc, but it won't likely add much lustre to your holiday season unless you're a major three tenors fan. I should also mention it's strange that the producers chose to edit out the audience's applause. I assume they didn't do that on the video; anyway, this is the type of concert which is probably better to watch than to listen to.
