This isn't people screwing up, this is professionals doing their work at a very high level.
How sad to see José Carreras almost crying. He is such a good ténor, gorgeous voice, wonderful artist.
Bernstein is the only guy who’s cigarette gets longer when he smokes and is pissed off
As a fellow singer, this sounds like a nightmare and I would totally be having a mental breakdown.
Love seeing the greats struggle. Jose Carreras is an amazing tenor. Seeing him learn as he goes is very inspiring we need more of these videos. They're as human as everyone else but more dedicated imo. Yes of course having his voice helps .
This rhythm is simply alien to any classical trained musician. Jose Carreras started singing as a child and can certainly read music, but this score is as great as it is complicated.
My heart breaks for this singer. His stress and embarrassment are palpable.
You know, if you’ve learned it a different way during your pre-rehearsals - it’s incredibly hard to “unlearn” it on the spot during the real rehearsals, especially if the person conducting is not only the composer, but he’s also the great Bernstein. Carreras had to be sweating blood during that torture session.
This "tenor" is José Carreras, one of the best ever. I have been in recordings as an orchestra member, and it can get difficult after repeating time after time, since you get tired and other factors do affect as well.
Imagine being conducted by the person that actually wrote the music!
This is the best ever recorded rehersal. This video is work of art. It is even more amazing then drama itself!!!
Can we take a moment to appreciate this is actually one of the best operatic tenors in the world? Why on Earth is he even singing something that is not opera??
I love how Bernstein stops the recording engineers from trying to correct Jose's accent! Way to stand up for that man!
I saw this years ago and at one point Carreras has tears in his eyes. It was not his fault as he was totally miscast as "Tony", and from what I've heard since, this was recorded either just before, or after Carreras underwent treatment for some sort of cancer! Bernstein was known to be difficult! I'm a soprano myself and I'd be terrified if he was my conductor!
He will always stay my all time favourite tenor. Even after seeing this video 😁
This is when making music zaps the life out of people. So stressful and it’s unfortunate because it’s such a fun score.
As a singer I honestly feel it for him in a room like that the pressure is so intense
It's not screwing up. It's called a rehearsal. This is how performances are moulded into perfection. We become better artists by making mistakes and learning from them. This situation happens even to the best of us. I'm glad this video was uploaded to remove stereotypical misconceptions that great artists don't need a lot of practice. This video here depicts reality. We all have to work hard to become incredible artists. Those who become legends even go the extra mile. :)
Even the greatest singers in the world screw up...it happens...they are human after all.
As other comments already stated, the syncopated phrasing is very hard for singers (musicians) coming from a classical background. It sounds rhythmically unresolved to the classical ear and the second eighth notes (I presume this is the case here) sound stiff and either too early or too late. Jose Carreras is a fantastic tenor with a beautiful voice and he certainly knows exactly what his difficulty is and works very hard to get it right. Hats off.
