JOSÉ CARRERAS / VERDI, DONIZETTI, ROSSINI 4808143

. . . José Carreras is certainly caught in his prime in his two collections . . . [offering worthwhile rarities] in what is surely some of the most sheerly beautiful tenor singing from its period . . .

. . . a thrillingly urgent, flowing performance . . . Carrera's dulcet delivery of the last two lines [of "Una furtiva lagrima"] is admirable . . . [two Rossini pieces are] fittingly interpreted and [the] aria ringing.
