Product Description

Product Description

BBC Review

As winter fastens its icy grip across the country, what better way to pass the time than in the company of Andrea Bocelli? The Italian tenor’s latest album is this sunny collection of songs, born in holiday destinations in Latin America and along the Mediterranean.

Recorded at his home in Tuscany, Bocelli serenades us in six languages, his relaxed manner belying an innate artistry as he moves from the classical style into a popular vein with consummate ease. His delivery is such that we hear his core feeling for each language, which colours his special timbre.

Opening track Perfidia begins with its less-well-known verse before the tune gets under way, finishing with a seamless transition from tenor voice to falsetto. Many of these titles, like Anema e core (How Wonderful to Know), are better known by their English titles. They’ll soon be recognised by listeners.

Bocelli's guest artists include the Canadian singer Nelly Furtado, on Antonio Carlos Jobim's Corcovado, and Jennifer Lopez on Quizàs Quizàs Quizàs (Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps). The latter is a catchy Latin song given a standout interpretation, Bocelli cleverly complementing Lopez's sparkling vocal. The arrangement, with a solo violin and whistle, makes for an intoxicating cocktail.

Not everything is quite so recommended, though. Bocelli's version of La Vie En Rose, upon which Edith Piaf's 1940s original has been pasted, is ill conceived. Not even modern studio techniques can disguise the shortcomings of the original recording.

David Foster's production, with a 63-piece orchestra, is as smooth as Bocelli's delivery. The employment of instrumental colours from saxophone, guitar, flute and accordion across the palette, played by distinguished instrumentalists, adds variety to deft arrangements of some very familiar songs. Many of which have been newly minted to suit Bocelli's vocals.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful surprise! 29 Jan 2013
By Annie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'Passione': I was a bit doubtful when I ordered this CD as it is not the kind of music I have ever really appreciated. But I decided to give it a try, and was pleasantly surprised - I love it! I have played it several times now, and it has proved to be the rare kind of album that gets better and better every time. Bocelli enhralls me with his interpretation of these love songs, many of which are new to me and which include some inspired duets with Jennifer Lopez, Nelly Furtado and the late Edith Piaf.

There are few singers who can tackle Elvis Presley's music convincingly, but Bocelli can! His rendition of 'Love me Tender' is stunning, every bit as good as Elvis's own version, and sung with such simple sincerity and honesty - just beautiful.

In 'Passione' Bocelli shows how versatile he has become as a performer and how much he has developed since his early 'Romanza' days. With his remarkable voice, which has got deeper, richer and more expressive over the years, he has produced one of his most interesting albums to date.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bocelli is unique pity this recording wasn't 23 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Both my wife and I are fans of Andrea Bocelli, so with great anticipation we waited for his latest release, and then, like the traditional buses, three came along at once! These were the standard edition, the delux edition and the special Amazon limited edition. So, what's wrong with that you may ask, and normally I'd agree, except that these various versions each varied from the others by just a couple of tracks. So if you are a CD user, now you know he has other music out there, but if you want it you have to buy the same 14 tracks again and again.

To me, this puts him in a league with other recent artists who have used the same confidence trick to try to sell additional copies, such as the Corrs who re-issued "Talk on Corners" with just the addition of the Fleetwood Mac song "Dreams", or Shania Twain with her multi-album Up! which was issued in three formats, all with the same tracks - Red Disc 1, Blue Disc 2 for the International market and Green Disc 2 for the USA Country Market.

Oh, by the way, I bought the delux version, and yes, we enjoyed Andrea's blend of classics and popular song choices.

I love Andre Bocelli but I was disappointed with the overall choice of tracks on this CD. I did not enjoy his duets. I feel this is not up to his usual standard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another winner 1 Feb 2013
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
The Andrea Bocelli and David Foster combination works again. Andrea's velvet voice and David Fosters beautiful arrangements make for a very romantic album. This album is very much in the same vain as Amore released a few years ago, so the two merge well together. Nice to relax and have a glass of wine (or two) to!

Just let's hope that a dvd is produced for this album like the one made for Amore - Under the Desert Sky. That is a real gem.

Perfect for those of us who love Andrea's voice but not so keen on the full blown classical music scene.

This was received on the release date. It is a great example of Bocelli's wide range of music he can sing and give such emotion to each individual song.
