Biography

José Carreras, one of the legendary "Three Tenors," was born Josep Carreras (Josep is his Catalan name, the equivalent of the Castilian Spanish José) in Barcelona in 1946. He began singing at a very early age; family lore holds that he serenaded passengers on a voyage home from Argentina when he was only five. He was inspired by the film biography The Great Caruso, ...

Any fan of Jose Carreras should ad this gem to their collection. The CD includes an interesting booklet that gives the lyrics to the songs along with English translations. A note from the booklet. 'In selecting the songs and arrangements for Pure Passion Jose Carreras considered those classical melodies which he had always longed to sing. ............The result like Jose Carreras' earlier best selling album Passion provides a unique collection of great musical moments performed with unfailing musicianship by one of the world's great singers.' He is accompanied by The London Musicians Orchestra Leader Rolf Wilson, solo pianists David Hartley and Rod Elms and Capital Voices directed by Anne Skates.

No words for this master. This compilation is worth buying, I didn't had anything from him and this one is a all around recommended for this type of music.

Wonderful songs and lyrics 10 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The classics come alive inthis beautiful recording byJose Carreras. From thepowerful rendition of Wagners "Tannhauser" Overture to the lovely "Lenote de Chopin" and PaulMcCartneys "Celebration",it's a pleasure to listentoo. Jose sings absolutelybeautiful, with lots ofpassion. He sings a wonderful tango "El eco detu voz" and that hauntingmelody of "Starry Night".

This is Heaven! 25 Jun. 2012
By Avonova - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For me so many favourites and sung so beautifully by Jose Carreras. He really does sing with pure passion. I started to cry when I heard "Quando" (When) by Elgar. I hadn't heard this song for many years and had forgotten about it although I love Elgar so I found Jose Carreras' rendition melting my cold heart. This is sung in Italian and so is Schubert's "Serenade", absolutely beautiful. Six other songs are in Italian. Two songs are in English one being Paul McCartney's "Celebration" which was a surprise to me as I never thought of him writing classical music. Of course, perhaps Jose Carreras makes it sound more classical. Some of the lyrics to this are not the best for example "because it is", and "because they do", sound like what you write when you can't think of anything as profound as the rest of the song.

In Spanish he sings Albenez "El Eco De To Voz" adpted from Tango. What's another word for beautiful?

Rachmaninoff gets two outings and Wagner gets a look in with "Europa" adapted from the overture to Tannhauser. Marvellous, big orchestra and choir backing him.

All round this is a delightful CD, a must have for all who are enthralled by the magnificent voice of Jose Carreras. Highly Recommended. I also highly recommend the CD and DVD with links below.

The case was not sealed and the center piece that holds the cd in place was broken. Looked like someone else may have opened this before I received it. I'm sorry I never got to listen to it as Jose Carreras is one of my favorites but, since it did not come directly from Amazon it could not be exchanged.
