Notes & Reviews:

This is a DTS CD, which features DTS 5.1 Surround Sound technology and is playable on a DTS-capable 5.1 Surround Sound system.

Personnel includes: Luciano Pavarotti, Eric Clapton, East London Choir, Joan Osbourne, Elton John, Liza Minelli, Zucchero, Sheryl Crow, Jon Secada, The Kelly Family, Edoardo Bennato, Solis String Quartet, Ligabue, Litfiba.

Recorded at the Parco Novi Sad, Modena, Italy on June 20, 1996.

Eclecticism, rendered with more good nature than real accomplishment, is the key characteristic of this mixed bag of performers gathering together in Modena, Italy (Luciano Pavarotti's hometown), for a benefit concert for Bosnian children. Actually, the pop stars, notably Eric Clapton and Elton John, come off better than the host. Sheryl Crow doesn't embarrass herself duetting on Mozart with Pavarotti nearly as much as Pavarotti does duetting with Liza Minnelli on "New York, New York." With plenty of Italian pop and competent Anglo-American hits to accompany the classical musings, there's something here for nearly everyone. ~ William Ruhlmann
