Notes & Reviews:

Love is the theme of this extraordinary 1998 New Year's Eve Concert. And who wrote better music about love than Mozart and Verdi? The Berliner Philharmoniker is conducted by Maestro Claudio Abbado and he has chosen two of the best Mozart interpreters of our day, Christine Schafer and Simon Keenlyside, for this traditionally meaningful event. Marcelo Alvarez from Argentina, compared by some to a young Placido Domingo, sings highlights of the tenor repertoire, and Italian Prima-donna Mirella Freni tops the occasion with a breathtaking performance of the Letter scene of Tchaikovsky's 'Eugene Onegin'.
