Notes and Editorial Reviews

This recording is also available on VHS and DVD as Atlantic Records 83133.
The first recording by this august triumvirate turned out to be the biggest selling classical music title of all time, and this new recording will probably sell just as well. The formula is the same: each tenor sings a solo aria or song and then all three join voices in crowd-pleasing favorites. It is a wonderful treat for fans of the vocal art to hear the greatest tenors of our day, and there is much from each singer to delight fans.
What makes the disc so pleasing is the effortless way in which the singers blend. Jose Carreras' tone has darkened nicely, and his voice provides excellent contrast to the brighter hues of Luciano Pavarotti, while Placido Domingo
Read more brings an almost baritone-like sonority to the mix. The tenors join voices in two sets of songs, "Medley of Romance" and "Medley of the World," giving an ample dose of the excitement of hearing them sing together. Notable solo efforts include Carreras passionately singing the rarely heard "T'estimo" by Grieg. Domingo shines in the familiar "Amor ti vieta" from Umberto Giordano's 'Fedora' and Pavarotti brings down the house with his signature tune, "Nessun dorma" from Puccini's 'Turandot.' Read less
