Program notes

On December 23, 1999, Vienna’s opulent Konzerthaus played host to a remarkable event: a Christmas concert featuring the three tenors—Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo, and José Carreras—singing a mix of sacred and popular Christmas songs. From Irving Berlin’s White Christmas to Johannes Brahms’s Wiegenlied: Guten Abend, gute Nacht, from Adeste Fideles to Feliz Navidad, three of the most popular singers of the late 20th century gave heartwarming performances accompanied by the Vienna Symphony Orchestra and the Gumpoldskirchner Spatzen Children’s Choir under the baton of Italian American conductor Steven Mercurio.
