In celebration of her 30th Anniversary in the music industry, Ross released several special projects including a 20th Anniversary Salute to her iconic, "Lady Sings the Blues", in a pay-per-view and CD special entitled: "Stolen Moments: The Lady Sings Jazz and Blues",a boxed set "Forever, Diana" (and a single disc, the #1 International smash, "One Woman"), and two holiday albums, one solo, "A Very Special Season" released internationally only and this, "Christmas in Vienna" which was a PBS special in 1992 and then commercially released as a CD/DVD in 1993.
After the stunning pay-per-view concert, "Stolen Moments", Diana's fan base had to be more than complete. It was a live taping at the old Ritz in New York in December of 1992 and then much to their surprise, the PBS special, "Christmas in Vienna" w/The Two Tenors, Carreras and Domingo. The project was a global smash hitting the summit across Europe and the states. There was even a near Top 10 European single version of "If We Hold on Together" extracted from the concert.
While her fan base, anticipated how Diana would blend with two renowned classical singers, they need not have been concerned because it proved a formidable team that ended up touring Asia and Europe. It culminated in 3 different television specials, "Christmas in Vienna" shown globally. And "Super Concert" with a Budapest television special and different songs and a Japanese television special.
The album sold over a million copies internationally and added great lustre to Ross' wonderful legacy.
Musically, the songs were mostly traditional holiday fare with the exception being a thrilling version of Ross singing "Amazing Grace" and the aforementioned "If We Hold on Together".
It remains an annual airing and return to the classical/holiday charts as a catalog title.
