* Just one year after his highly acclaimed comeback at the Vienna State Opera, José Carreras returned to the same opera stage where he made his brilliant debut as a thirty-year-old: the Großes Festspielhaus in Salzburg.
* This
Read more same recital was staged a second time and was also relayed live to a giant screen at the city's Domplatz – a clear indication of the enormous affection in which he was held by the Salzburg public.
* The Spanish tenor repays such lively interest with an exclusive programme that includes no less than 23 songs and five encores.
* Whereas the first half of the evening was divided into three parts – works from the Italian baroque, French mélodies by Jules Massenet and canzoni by Francesco Paolo Tosti – the second half consisted entirely of Spanish works, focusing principally on the songs of Manuel de Falla.
* And if not the final encore of the evening, certainly its crowning moment is the song we have come to associate with José Carreras as his vocal trademark – 'Granada' by Agustìn Lara.
