About José Carreras

José Carreras,
one of the legendary 'The Three Tenors', was born in Barcelona in 1946. He
began singing onstage at the age of 11, but his role as Gennaro in Donizetti's Lucrezia
Borgia
in 1970, opposite 'La Superba' Montserrat Caballé, is generally
considered his real debut as a tenor. Carreras is widely represented in
operatic and concert recordings, with more than 50 complete opera recordings to
his name. From 1990 to 2003, he toured the world alongside Placido Domingo and
Luciano Pavarotti as part of 'The Three Tenors'. He won the 'Best Classical
Vocal Performance' award in Grammy Awards 1990.
