BBC Review

The songs on this disc don't really lend themselves to traditional critical scrutiny. And, as tempting as it is to take a series of shots at the open goal of Bocelli's musical style, it would probably be more useful to the millions out there who will no doubt buy this album to simply highlight a few pros and cons in the approaches taken.

Yes, most of the arrangements on Vivere would prove mildly offensive to many even if heard spilling from the long bar at the back of a cross-channel ferry. But there are some engaging, even captivating techniques in their arrangements which demonstrate distinct skill: textures are built up slowly and with patience, the harmonic variations verse-to-verse are sometimes imaginative, and the orchestrations - from the string writing to the Bond-esque glissando bass guitar - are occasionally classy.

What might prove disappointing, then, is that even in his 'best of' album, the singer himself frequently fails to match these effects. Despite some vocal 'moments' in 'Time to Say Goodbye' and 'Vivo per Lei', Bocelli demonstrates a general inability to deliver vocal lines with any sense of drama, colour or direction. The communicative talents of his guests Sarah Brightman, Céline Dion and pianist Lang Lang only serve to highlight this. For vocal contrast he resorts to a more closely-miked gravel-toned delivery, which in a crude edit at 2'26 in 'Il Mare Calmo Della Serra' is shunted jarringly up against his standard light vibrato mezzo-forte.

Despite this, the one or two pieces in which the basic musical texture is left to its own devices are the least troublesome. 'Besame Mucho', for example: a simple song in the Spanish guitar style which seems sublimely uncluttered and honest against the key-changes, jingly-janglies and beat machines that permeate the rest of the disc. But when decent musicianship is on show, as from the sensitive guitarist in 'Besame Mucho' and the evocative flautist in 'La Voce Del Silenzo', it's Bocelli who's shown up. Sadly though, those instrumentalists aren't credited - not even in the booklet's small print. --Andrew Mellor

Format:Audio CD
Sugar Records presents "THE BEST OF ANDREA BOCELLI: VIVERE" --- On October 21, 2007, he sang "Con te partirò" with Katherine Jenkins on the popular UK television series 'Strictly Come Dancing' results show, and on October 30, 2007, he sang "The Prayer" with Celine Dion on the soon-to-be-aired ITV special "An Audience with Céline Dion." --- He sang alongside fellow Italian singer Laura Pausini "Vivire" ("Dare To Live", in English, which was also released in "The Best of: Andrea Bocelli as "Dare To Live (Vivere)") during the 2007 Latin Grammy.

Andrea Bocelli (born 22 September 1958) is an Italian singer --- He is both an operatic tenor and a classical crossover singer --- To date, he has recorded six complete operas -- La Bohème, Il Trovatore, Werther, Pagliacci, Cavalleria Rusticana and Tosca -- in addition to various classical and pop albums --- He has sold 55 million albums worldwide --- Bocelli has been blind since the age of 12 when a soccer accident accelerated an already slow loss of eyesight from congenital glaucoma

In 1992, the Italian rock star Zucchero first auditioned Bocelli while scouting for tenors to duet with him in the song "Miserere"; after hearing this recording, tenor Luciano Pavarotti urged Zucchero to use Bocelli instead of himself and said, "Let Andrea sing Miserere with you, for there is no one finer." --- The song was later recorded with Pavarotti, but Bocelli accompanied Zucchero on his European concert tour --- In 1994, Bocelli performed the winning entry "Il mare calmo della sera" at the Sanremo Festival, which led to his first gold record.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent collection 9 July 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm not a fan of classical music, this was a gift for my Dad for Christmas. But after hearing some of the CD, he does have an excellent voice.

Well worth listening to upon a Sunday afternoon or on the way to work.
