Can't fault Andrea's performance but hardly a popular choice as a Christmas release.....for our taste, the Vivere CD is much better listening experience and is played extremely regularly. Producers please note.
I had the absolute pleasure of seeing Andrea in Liverpool on 11th November 2012 and he was, as always, wonderful. I never tire of listening to him. This album is no exception. He certainly has a unique voice and is a very gentle man who just loves to sing. Highly recommended
This is a fantastic compilation of arias and a couple of duets from the works of Verdi, Leoncavallo, Giordano, Mascagni, Bizet, Donizetti, Puccini et al. Bocelli's powerful but warm sounding voice does justice to these opera highlights and produces a very listenable album. Arguably one of the greatest tenors alive today.
This is the operatic equivalent of Bocelli's 'Vivere' - the best arias and duets performed superbly by the biggest-selling classical artist in the world. Bocelli has such a unique timbre and beauty in his voice, a joy to listen to. If Rudolfo in 'La Boheme' and Don José in 'Carmen' were real people, I am sure they would sound more like Bocelli than any other tenor. Well done, Andrea!
We went to see him at the Metro Arena in Newcastle upon Tyne 2012, I was very impressed by the vocal range of the alto tenor. I bought this album as a Christmas present for my wife - She was over the moon with it. Even more so when I told her the saving I had made from using, the app called Shopping Sherlock.
