I bought this CD in 1994 right after hearing the 2nd Three Tenors concert (in LA). The concert itself had a bombastic quality to it, but I was immediately impressed by sincerity and humanity of a slight but elegant man in the center. Domingo and Pavarotti were household names prior to the concert, but an average person had heard very little of José Carreras. Well, for me personally, he was the single force that drew me into the world of opera and kept me there. I've collected over 5,000 CDs and complete operas of various artists since then, and what started it all was this single CD with a very proper title, showcasing Carreras at his greatest (1970s-80s). Philips has done a splendid job of capturing his electrifying tenor on record. The CD starts with an aria that has been long considered a measuring staff for tenors - Di Quella Pira. The very first time I heard Carreras's version of it I was simply blown away. His voice had a very unique quality (since then I've found that young Di Stefano had it in the early 50s) - his high notes (above middle E) are like bursts of fire, easily carrying above large orchestras and booming choruses. By the way, those thinking it's just Philips's engineering, check out a CD of live performances entitled "Bravissimi Tenori" (just 3 bucks) and you will see that Carreras was even more thrilling live on stage. The disc further has morsels not currently available anywhere, such as a white-hot final duet from Rossini's "Otello", a great scene from Verdi's "La Battaglia di Legnano", and "La Danza", a rousing Italian tarantella. What will strike even a seasoned fan are the two selections from "Tosca". This particular version was recorded under baton of Sir Colin Davis in 1976 and immediately became the best "Tosca" on record.Read more ›

This CD has all the most famous arias as well as other great music, sung by one of the best tenors ever. If you're new to opera, this is a great way to start your collection.
