The Three Tenors in Concert, recorded live in Rome in 1990, holds the distinction in the Guinness Book of World Records (in 2010) of being the best-selling classical album of all time. The concert, held at the Baths of Caracella, took place July 7, 1990, just before the opening of the Soccer World Cup Final. This concert and album, which initiated the Three Tenors phenomenon, had the original purpose of raising funds for the José Carreras International Leukaemia Foundation and boosting the career of Carreras, who had only recently recovered from the disease. Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, and Carreras take turns singing opera arias, Broadway hits, and traditional Neapolitan songs, but on several tracks, the three tenors sing together. Zubin Mehta accompanies the singers, leading the orchestras of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and Teatro dell'Opera di Roma. © TiVo

The most devoted fans of the Three Tenors (José Carreras, Plácido Domingo, and Luciano Pavarotti) may already have the music included in this album of greatest hits taken from their concerts in Rome (1990), Los Angeles (1994), and Paris (1998), but for listeners new to the singers, this disc makes a good introduction. The repertoire is weighted toward the Latinate, featuring primarily popular song and opera excerpts from Italy, Spain, and Latin America, but also included are songs from The Merry Widow, Carousel, Singin' in the Rain, and West Side Story. Most of the music has a strongly Romantic, emotionally charged, lyrical feeling that's enhanced by the lush orchestral arrangements. James Levine and Zubin Mehta provide the accompaniment, leading Orchestra del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Orchestra del Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Los Angeles Music Center Opera Chorus, and Orchestre de Paris. The sound is excellent and detailed even though the concerts were recorded live. The enthusiasm of the audience is evident throughout, and they frequently break into spontaneous applause. © TiVo

Booklet
This installment of The Three Tenors was recorded live at Dodgers Stadium in 1994. It is hard to imagine the use of a sports stadium for classical musicians, but given the popularity of these men, the idea is not so ludicrous. With Zubin Mehta at the helm of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Placido Domingo, José Carreras, and Luciano Pavarotti perform with vitality and pizzazz. Combining the usual mix of classical favorites and contemporary standards, this concert finds the tenor triumvirate in fine form. While each tenor has sung similar repertoire, they are quite individual in their delivery. Domingo offers a boisterous "Granada," Carreras sings a passionate "O souverain, o juge, o père," and Pavarotti brings down the house with "Nessun dorma." The three-way split arias ("La donna è mobile" and "Libiamo ne' lieti calici") showcase the joint talents of the tenor powerhouses, and Lalo Schifrin's special medley arrangements are romantic, enjoyable fun. © TiVo

The career of José Carreras will surely go down in opera history as one of the greats. This Philips retrospective, covering the years 1976-1992, includes some of the brightest performances he has recorded. The Spanish singer is best known for his work as a lyric tenor, but as his voice continued to develop, Carreras successfully made the shift to more substantial roles. Rather than presenting this development chronologically, the producers have organized Carreras' work by composer. The first CD is dedicated to his work with the great operas while the second primarily features his lyric performances. It is in his work with the English Chamber Orchestra that Carreras shines brightest. Virtually all of the second CD has been taken from their work together between 1978 and 1984. © TiVo
