In 1974 Carreras "made his Metropolitan début as Cavaradossi and sang Alfredo at Covent Garden, where he was also greatly admired as Nemorino, Rodolfo and Stiffelio. At Salzburg he sang Don Carlos and Radames under Karajan... The sweetness of timbre and purity of phrasing that typified his singing in the first part of his career made him one of the most popular lyric tenors of his generation... Carreras... has at his best justified comparisons with Björling and the young Di Stefano. His recorded repertory is wide, and includes many roles in works by Donizetti, Verdi and Puccini, where the fervent and elegaic qualities of his singing can be heard; he has also recorded West Side Story with Bernstein."
