The Three Tenors in Concert 1994
19 Aug 1994
Other participants: Plácido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti, Zubin Mehta, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Los Angeles Music Center Opera Chorus
The legendary tenors José Carreras, Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti, together with conductor Zubin Mehta, celebrated the finale to soccer’s 1994 World Cup with a live concert described as “probably the biggest single musical event in history”. Brought together for the 1990 World Cup in Italy, The 3 Tenors and Mehta joined forces again, this time in Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium on July 16th 1994 with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Los Angeles Music Center Opera Chorus, to perform a selection of operatic arias and international favourites specially orchestrated by composer/arranger Lalo Schifrin. The result is an outstanding album, reflecting a unique event, featuring three legendary performers who share a united passion for opera and football.
