Notes and Editorial Reviews

Plácido Domingo has established a new holiday tradition with his series of Christmas in Vienna concerts, featuring music stars from across the globe. This year's edition is a festive live recording from the elegant Rathaus in Vienna, featuring English sensation Sarah Brightman (Time to Say Goodbye, Phantom of the Opera), the soulful Italian pop singer/songwriter Riccardo Cocciante and the new Belgian star Helmut Lotti (Helmut Lotti Goes Classic as seen on PBS). The songs include traditional international favorites as well as surprises written by the Bee Gees, John Lennon, Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, and a song from the children's classic The Snowman, "Walking in the Air". With this rich blend of popular, classical and Read more international Christmas songs, A Gala Christmas in Vienna is a winner.
