Product Description

Continuing a series exploring the popular music of Europe, Echoes Of Italy offers the ideal snapshot of Italian music in the fifties. This superb collection offers almost two and a half hours of great performances by such legends as Sophia Loren and Mario Lanza, as well as artists like Marino Marini and Domenico Modugno, who enjoyed international chart success as the world succumbed to the charms of Italian pop. Echoes Of Italy casts its net wide to also explore the ties which bound Italian-American performers to the old country. For many centuries, Italy has been famed for its romance and its music and no collection in our Echoes series will be more passionate or better sung. You will thrill to the soaring voice of Mario Lanza as he sings O sole mio and La donna è mobile . With his good looks and engaging personality, it is hardly surprising that he became a Hollywood star. This collection features such popular songs as Volare , Come prima , Buona sera and Arrivederci Roma performed by Domenico Modugno, Marino Marini, Adriano Celentano and many other Italian stars. Some of the melodies will be familiar to you as the songs were often translated for the English-speaking market, but by and large our collection is performed in Italian. Around the start of the twentieth century, there was a mass immigration of Italians to America and as a result there are many, very popular Italian-American singers. We have included Perry Como, Connie Francis and several other entertainers. The more unusual tracks on Echoes Of Italy include Sophia Loren praising the mambo and Dean Martin worrying about his Italian pronunciation! There are the personality-laden voices of Louis Prima and Lou Monte and, in complete contrast, some Italian protest songs. Whether or not you have been to Italy, these songs will transport you to such sunlit destinations as Rome, Naples and Sicily. Most of all, you will be transported the Trevi Fountain, so get ready to throw in your coins!
