Christmas is not far away, so let’s celebrate Christmas with The Three Tenors! In the great city of Wien (Vienna) in Austria on December 23, 1999, The Three Tenors performed their only Christmas concert together.
This concert was a grand event, with a mix of sacred and popular Christmas songs. The Three Tenors sang separately, in duets and as a trio.
In the first video The Three Tenors sings “Ave Maria, Dolce Maria”. This is a modern Italian Christmas song with the text written by Pavarotti himself!
The second video is John Lennon’s “Happy Christmas, War is Over”. When this song is sung like this it better be peace all over the world, or else there will be terrible Three Tenors dreams all over!
The Three Tenors Christmas concert was broadcasted on TV and issued on CD, VHS and DVD on Sony Classics.
Odd Pavarotti Blog wish you all a merry Christmas and a peaceful new year!
