About

Decca is proud to present the third in the immensely successful 50 Greatest series: José Carreras. The perfect compilation for opera lovers, this 2-CD set features the 50 greatest tracks that shaped Carreras’s career including arias by Verdi, Puccini and ‘Tonight’ from the musical West Side Story.

One of Decca’s most acclaimed tenors, José Carreras is nearing the 50 year landmark of his professional career, and is currently on his final world tour travelling far and wide between three continents.

Winner of two Gramophone awards, the 2009 Lifetime Achievement award and member of the legendary Three Tenors alongside Pavarotti and Domingo, these are just a few of the many great milestones in Carreras’s career.

“I carry on singing because I love it. The closer you are to the end, the more you understand how important it is.” - José Carreras

“Domingo may have been more noble, Pavarotti more brilliant, but the soulful Catalan was the one whose tone glowed most radiantly and youthfully.” - Telegraph
