"Nepotism" Carreras: Sergi Gimenez, tenor

Another gifted nephew of Josep Carreras. From before we know of David Gimenez Carreras, the conductor, and now it is the tenor Sergi Gimenez Carreras.

Sergi was born in Barcelona in 1969. "Sergi enjoyed musical training with María Massiá, Nuria Aragonés and Gino Bechi (Italy), the Folkwang Hoch Schule (Germany), and Miguel Fleta Pierre, Isabel Penagos and David Mason (Spain). He also took master classes with the internationally renowned artists Montserrat Caballé and Josep Carreras." (Florian Mueck)

Lyrical Gala Concert and Premiere of "Belcanto in film"
15th September 2009 at Vila-seca, Costa Dorada near Tarragona, Spain

"Belcanto in film" became a fascinating success by packing the Concert Hall to the last seat, while José introduced the enthralling Pilar Jurado (soprano), his exceptionally gifted nephews Sergi Giménez (tenor), David Giménez (conductor) and the routined Academy Orchestra of the "Gran Teatro del Liceo" in Barcelona to an enthusiastic audience.

If you really had nepotism, Sergi would triumph. You should know that his uncle little, if anything, has helped his nephew. The tenor, I mean.
Sergi not want to be the "nephew" and is carving his way slowly and suffering like any other musician.
You should learn more. Make two concerts with him, does not mean "nepotism"
