3, Jose ? Carreras (José Carreras)
   Spanish tenor Jose. 1946.12.5 Carreras was born in Catalonia, the regional capital
Barcelona. School and the first on the stage are at home, performing the repertoire is
Nabucco Verdi 【】. 1971, Carreras was Italian, "Giuseppe Verdi Vocal
Music Award", has become the world's leading lyric tenor. Jose
Carreras and Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo is a world-renowned Three Tenors.
His father is a rotten system to support teachers in the Republic, her mother was a
strong woman character, for the distress the family was never depressed.
In the 7 years old, Carreras watched the film "The Great
Caruso", starring Mario Lanza ? superb acting and beautiful singing left a
deep impression. Since then, Carreras to determined the cause of his life in music. In
the father's support, he entered the local music school, first learning the
piano, and soon began studying singing.
22 years old, the famous soprano Cabaille to Barcelona for students to listen to
Carreras concert. By chance, she heard Carreras singing, he sounds very much
appreciated, and sang with him, "Lu 克莱齐亚波契 Asia."
Jose Carreras at the Barcelona Conservatory of Music when he studied under
Professor Pigault. In the meantime, Pigault focus on training his voice, asking him to
maintain the continuity of the pitch. Carreras said: "In the whole range, the
tenor of the most difficult. Because it is not a natural sound, but a trained falsetto.
However, the same no more exciting than a tenor. So, tenor usually the hero or
romantic suave leading man first. "never had in his possession were
considered to be baritone, and this thanks to Carreras natural high range.
In 1971, Carreras to an Italian, "Verdi Voices" singing
competition first ended his student days, since the beginning of his career for many
In 1972, Carreras to the United States. He sang Jiyakamo ? Puccini opera
"Madama Butterfly" in the flat Colton, the New York City
Opera and he immediately signed a three-year contract. Since then, his assessment of
vocal music industry is "Tian Run, lyric tenor, has a velvety

In    1974,    he    sang at   the    Metropolitan   Opera     Puccini    opera
"Tosca" in the card cutting Laduo Xi, and created a sensation.
His career began to peak.

In 1976, Carreras has encountered on his own career was a major impact on the
conductor Herbert von ? ? Karajan, when he performed at the Salzburg
Verdi's "Requiem."

Soon, they jointly produced the film version of "Don Carlos."
Carreras tenor repertoire that this is one of the most difficult role, not only the high
range, and the need to maintain stamina, keep singing. Don Carlos he understood the
role that: "his character weak, vague misgivings, despite the mercy of
others. He is young, immature, unable to self-choice, because of his love being used.
All his behavior is to cause others to pay attention. he wanted revenge.
"" Don Carlos "opened, the" Opera
"magazine rating, said:" Carreras tenor of this year's
most satisfying. His acting still inadequate, But when he opened his lungs, there is a
striking effect. "

Then, his voice and stage demeanor has impressed people, and his lyrical tone is
considered very suitable for the role of Italian opera in the light. As for the French
opera, he insisted on singing the Witte is a typical example. Carreras that the French
opera singing voice should be used round the other point lies in the pronunciation

To the 80's, Carreras began to sing the role of the main heavy lyric, he
performed during this period Verdi's "minstrel",
Puccini's         "Boheme,"             "Turandot
"and other famous operas. This respect is to meet the needs of the audience,
but also to recordings. Carreras that, although his voice has been described as
"sweet tenor," but his innate personality made him reluctant to
stay in a rut, "tired of the same role year after year to circle the
world's professional career" "Even if I could sing
these roles almost perfect. I want to wait until the end of my career, I at least want to
sing are sung all the."

However, after 40 years of age in the volume and tone on a major change is indeed an
adventure, with Giuseppe Di ? ? Sidaifanuo and others a lesson, Carreras and not by
changing their original characteristics to adapt to the new role, but to use their
existing strengths, rely mainly on-stage experience to achieve the desired results. In
this tenor Jose Carreras and many other different, he did not insist too loud and
all-powerful singing skills, but more emphasis on the appeal of music - and he did
have unique appeal. Later, he had made: "The songs should be sung with
heart, blindly singing skills will not really show off the singer."

In addition, Carreras understanding of the role of the opera are strong, very good
control of the plot, characters, and the balance between the music itself. This is his
superior to others.

Undoubtedly, Carreras achieved unprecedented success. He shaped Rudolph, Khalaf
and other characters enjoys popular support.

February 1982, Carreras and Karajan together again, in Berlin presents
"Tosca." Carreras amazing level of play in the second and third
screen 40-minute break between the cancellation of the case and not one breath after
another over and over in three acts were weak, staggering.

In the 80's, Carreras, another classical repertoire is Bizet's
"Carmen." He was the first attempt in Madrid in 1982, starred
in the role of Don Jose. In 1983, under the guidance of his Karajan new understanding
of this figure. Karajan told him by the fate of the fun of Don Jose can not be
controlled, and therefore murder, and Carreras in the role before the treatment as if he
was born a killer general. Karajan also called Carreras will "you throw my
flowers," sung as gentle and moving, he took the sheet music to the
Carreras of view, "Bizet's tips are Pianissimo, you sang this
volume. "As a result, an amazing piano Carreras to end down B, almost
beyond everyone's expectations. The Don Jose, Carreras has its own
understanding: "He had a simple plain person. In the first act, the first time
in his life found himself could not help falling in love with a woman. To the second
act, he had deep trapped in love, impulsive, jealous, immature. while in the third act,
most of the tenor too excited or sad, these two extremes are wrong. In fact, when Don
Jose into the bullring, he was hopeful His self-confidence to make Carmen a change
of heart. So, here needs to have control of the sound. "

For Karajan, Carreras full of gratitude. Karajan's opera training deep,
"and Karajan rehearsal with a lot of pressure, there are many things to
learn." Carreras that Karajan was stubborn, often encounter will have their
differences position, "Karajan great ability to convince others. Sometimes I
think if he asked me to sing Micaela, I could go sing." Of course,
Karajan's stubbornness and a wrong time. He had asked Carreras appeared
in Verdi opera "Aida" in the Radames, but Carreras tenor hero
since it is hard to achieve the required volume. To this end, the preparation of Karajan
or reduce the number of orchestral, but still failed to achieve the desired results.

The summer of 1987, Carreras was diagnosed with leukemia. Soon, he was in
Barcelona and Seattle had two bone marrow transplant.

After only one year of treatment, had been considered less than 10% chance of
survival Carreras miraculously have survived on July 11, 1988 held in Barcelona,
Piazza comeback concert, then Youyi unprecedented European tour to celebrate their
return. In 1989, Carreras performed opera in the Spanish Merida,
"Newtown Square", to continue his career on the stage. The
vitality of his admiration of the world rare.

Throughout the 90's, Carreras irrigation system, a large number of records,
many in the past has been singing opera arias and art songs were re-interpretation. In
these records, the rebirth of the Carreras has brought to people is beyond the
comprehension of life. His voice is even more profound, while maintaining the
original style, is still natural, thick, soft to the poles, with a "subtle

At the same time, since 1990, Carreras began with Pavarotti, Domingo organized
"Three Tenors concert series." Of course, every concert is a
moderate, restrained Carreras always the most low-key one.

In 1992, Carreras and "Yueguangnvshen" Sarah Brightman sang
together the Barcelona Olympic Games theme song "Forever
Friends" (amigos para siempre).

However, entering the 21st century, Pavarotti and Domingo faded in time, then have
infinitely close to death Carreras is still active in parts of the world stage, are busy
organizing concerts and new album . Carreras has been a dare to pursue, do not want a
fighter, even if the face of death he is still not giving up.
