Although I'm not the biggest fan of Pavarotti or Domingo I have to admit that Pav's "Torna a Surriento" and "Rondine al nido" and Domingo's "No puede ser" was absolutely beautiful.
The reason for not being their biggest fan is that they're not able to stir my emotions like Carreras, but when performing together the three voices blend perfectly and it sounds just wonderful.
I loved the way the three of them enjoyed themselves when performing together. It's real fun to watch the encore "O sole mio" where Pavarotti gives his famous trill. He just shakes his head and the high notes pops out. I've been listening to this on the cd for a long time, but never before seen what really happened. Pavarotti starts singing and then Domingo surprises him by cutting in, taking over the singing.Read more ›
In his youth, the big man was a soccer player, and played in goal for Modena before choosing a singing career. All three singers are self-confessed soccer fanatics.
However, Carreras was recovering from leukemia and had not been expected to sing again. He had no money and it's an open secret that this concert was to help get him back on his feet. The three tenors came together at the Caracalla Baths, an open-air site just outside Rome, and gave a performance which was as joyful and vibrant as the 1990 World Cup final between Germany and Argentina had been limp and turgid.
Old and new favourites, operatic and musical (including the soccer anthem "You'll Never Walk Alone" from 'Carousel'), Italian and Neopolitan songs under the baton of Zubin Mehta - this concert lit the blue touchpaper and we've been admiring the "Three Tenors" ever since. Sound quality is better on later versions but that is to be expected.
Other than the operatic fare, which stuck safely, a little too safe I say, to the standard repertoire, I particularly like Lalo Schifrin's arrangement of Schubert's Ave Maria, delivered with just the correct intensity by Pavarotti. Carreras was sparkling in 'E lucevan le stelle' and Domingo was brilliant in 'Granada'.
Even the chorus was a gem to watch and listen to.
This concert was captured so faithfully, in colour and sound on this disc, it made me forget that there was a World Cup soccer tournament on.
This original version of the original three tenors concerts given in Rome in 1990 was much copied but never matched for the sense of a unique and very special occasion. The actual recording is given good sound presented in stereo and DD 5.1 surround sound. The imaging is adequate by today's standards on close ups and only breaks up on distance shots. The camera work itself gives a good sense of immediacy and involvement - probably much better than being there at the time!
The selection of music, largely from opera and operetta, is unashamedly popular and is performed with total skill and a performance-aware delivery that positively invites increasingly enthusiastic audience support. All three singers are in good voice, probably more so than on the sequence of such concerts that followed. It would be easy for this to become a competitive activity, and so it is to a degree, but all three men are able to unite for the two encores - two Pavarotti specials ('O sole mio' and 'Nessun dorma') that are shared out between them with great camaraderie. Otherwise any competition is good humoured and fully understood as an essential ingredient to a very joyous occasion.
Everyone who buys this disc will have favourites in terms of aria and in terms of singer. Nevertheless, it would be hard to imagine anyone experiencing disappointment.Read more ›
