Product Description

Product Description

(Amadeus). Few singers have touched as many hearts as has Andrea Bocelli. This golden-voiced tenor has sung to sold-out audiences all over the world, and his legions of admirers have included popes, presidents, and monarchs as well as some of the greatest stars of classical and popular music. In The Music of Silence , Bocelli tells his own story in the form of an autobiographical novel, naming his alter ego "Amos Bardi." He writes of a loving family that encouraged his musical gifts from an early age, and of the dedication that led to his professional breakthrough and his meteoric rise to stardom. The first edition of Bocelli's memoir was published in 1999 and focused on the success and difficulties at the beginnings of his astonishing career. This newly revised and updated edition is an even deeper and more intimate analysis of his life, loves, and losses the result of wisdom gained from the increased personal and artistic maturity gained in the subsequent decade of his life. This book will touch and captivate all Bocelli fans and those who admire perseverance in the face of great challenges.

This is an interesting book. It gives a great insight into the life of Andrea. But a word of warning, if you love his voice, his performances, then reading this book may put some doubt about him in your mind. So, to prevent that remember one thing - he is an old fashioned Italian man. Remember each of those 3 facts - old fashioned, Italian, man. So if you are British don't expect British values. And with that in mind, enjoy the book, because it is worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 18 Dec 2013
By Nerys
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This autobiography by Andrea Bocelli is beautifully written. It is both interesting and moving to follow his life story from early childhood to the point where he reached his dream of becoming a famous singer. And in this edition we get an update which describes the two most significant events in his personal life since the start of the new millennium, the death of his father and his meeting with his fiancée Veronica Berti. You get the feeling that his story is told with complete honesty. He is clearly a deep thinker and, I believe, a very sensitive person. One c an only feel joy at the fact that he has reached such an extraordinary level of success in his musical career and happiness in his private life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Book!!! 11 Nov 2011
By Richard D. Cappetto - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A wonderful engaging autobiography, I could not put it down. This is a truly gifted man, one who is able to show us his thinking and emotions though his beautiful singing and now in his writing. He reveals to us (the reader) his mental processes of how a young blind boy became a man. His fears, hopes and aspiration are all hear. His love of family and friends (Typically Italian) are touching. His Love for his Homeland (Tuscany). His Blindness, His Love of Music, His Education, His Friendships, His Search for a wife and his experience of having a child and his career and how it all started are all hear. Wonderfully written and beautifully translated. This is an updated version and brings us right up to the present. A Must read for the Bocelli fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars True love strikes again 18 Oct 2011
By Marie Callo - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Andrea Bocelli is rightly admired for his courage and tenacity as well as for his golden voice. On stage he projects a certain shyness and serenity which do not emerge in "The Music of Silence" even though he uses a third person narrative. As to women, he likes them young, witness his estranged wife here called Elena who is 13 years his junior and his present lover here named Vanessa who is twenty plus years younger. As an autobiography this book seems superficial. As for me, I'm waiting for to carry a biography.

I love Andrea Bocelli and enjoyed reading about all of the obstacles he overcame in his life. I think some of the book was lost in translation but I still enjoyed it especially after going to one of his concerts. He is a humble man whom is extremely talented.
