Carreras gets gyped a bit in this Cd. They only really allow him to sing from Broadway and west side story which is a shame. This is not where is vocal glory lies. Don't get me wrong he sounds great, but I want to hear E lucevan le stelle or one of the arias from Carmen he is so famous for. His Maria is the highlight if only to hear him sing a decent high-note after hearing so much of his diminished "three-tenors" cannon fodder.
Anyone interested in him should buy "Carreras the Golden Years."
Im glad Bocelli was included on this Cd to show how thin he sounds next to some of the big tenors of the generation. Ladies and Gentelemen Bocelli is not an opera singer. He has no training or stylistic integrity in the field. He is, however, a smashing pop artist and would encourage you to hear his "Sueno" for proof. La Donna E Mobile is one of his best aria's as he shows he has firm high notes but his voice is also noticably thinner than the rest.
Domingo sounds awesome in this Cd. His voice is splendid in the Lanzaesque reperatoire which he sings here. Go out and buy his Dvd's and opera recordings. Check out "The greatest hits of Placido Domingo" His Core N'Grato rivals Carreras's 1978 recordin of the song. He is in absolutley electrifying form.
Pav sounds okay. He is recorded here very late in his carrer. Nessun Dorma is fantastic even though his voice is not heavy enough fundamentally for the aria. His Mattinata is not that impressive.Read more ›

What can I say, who doesn't love romance especially when sung in another romantic language??Published on March 12, 2007 by Amazon Customer
Good choice of opera classic and popular songs. Always masterful voices of Carreras, Domingo and Pavarotti.
Should buy for fans of these tenors.
