A mere three weeks after his much-acclaimed return to operatic and concert performance at the Salzburg Festival in August 1989, Jos?® Carreras appeared in another important musical event - a joint concert with his Spanish compatriot, singer Montserrat Caball?®, held in Moscow's famous Bolshoi Theatre.
The concert opens with a medley of baroque and belcanto gems from the 17th and 18th centuries, including a rendition by Jos?® Carreras of 'arie antiche' by Alessandro Scarlatti.
Italian and Spanish songs form a central element in the programme for this concert, including three 'canzoni' by Francesco Paolo Tosti and one by Salvatore Cardillo, favourites from Carreras' concert repertoire. These popular Italian songs are matched by several Spanish 'canciones popolares', sung by Montserrat Caball?®.
