JOSEP CARRERAS - PURE MAGIC AT THE CARNEGIE HALL (28 SEPTEMBER 2017)
"Pure magic!": I was repeated this several time by some lucky attending people. Josep Carreras said goodbye to one of his dearest venue in the US, the Carnegie Hall in New York with a recital the audience will hardly forget. He was accompanied by mezzosoprano Margarita Gritskova and his long-time pianist and close friend, Lorenzo Bavaj.

The review, in which most titles of the program plus eight encores are reported, points out:
Now, his voice projects just as brightly as before and functions without wavering or any signs of weakness. With a slight more grit in the voice, it’s now that of a finely cared for antique wood; still lacquered smooth with lyricism, but rich and rustic.
