Notes and Editorial Reviews

Filmed in 1992, this Christmas performance features opera divas Kathleen Battle and Frederica von Stade alongside jazz legend Wynton Marsalis. Under conductor Andre Previn, traditional Christmas tunes are given top billing, though classic opera makes its presence more than known. Among the featured composers are Engelbert Humperdinck, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Mel Torme, and Franz Zaver Gruber.

The entire performance is outstanding Battle and von Stade and creative jazz arrangements from Marsalis , the jazz piano from Andre Previn, and the orchestra and choir also dazzles. A great live event, well recorded at Carnegie. Highly recommend ." Report Abuse
