Notes and Editorial Reviews

On the evening of 7 July 1990 an "impossible dream" came true: the three most famous tenors in the world joined forces with an orchestra of two hundred musicians against a backdrop of the majestic scenery of ancient Rome. In the famous Baths of Caracalla on a brilliant starlit night with a full moon rising, José Carreras, Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti, together with Maestro Zubin Mehta, presented an evening of arias, songs and medleys which was unique in musical history. For the six thousand fortunate people who crowded into Caracalla that evening and the television audience of eight hundred million it was an experience never to be forgotten. But few at the time could have realised the full historical Read more significance of the concert and the profound effect it would have on the popular perception of classical music. The concert has been broadcast and rebroadcast again and again and has always been received with undiminished enthusiasm. The album has sold more copies than any other classical recording ever, and its overwhelming popularity led to a repeat concert to coincide with the 1994 World Cup final in Los Angeles, followed by a world tour spanning the four continents of Asia, Europe, America and Australasia. The concert also became the first-ever classical release to appear on DVD video. With the unique combination of studio-quality pictures plus 5-channel surround sound, this release of the "Three Tenors" offers the most faithful document yet of that remarkable moment in musical history.
