Product Description

Arrivederci follows the massive success of Vittorio’s debut album In The Hands of Love. The album shot into the top 10 of the UK album chart, and the hottest new tenor was quickly snapped up to perform duets with Nicole Scherzinger and the legendary Lionel Richie.
 A stunning collection of thirteen of the best Italian songs and opera arias personally chosen by Vittorio Grigolo, his second album proves just why his recent appearance in Faust at the Royal Opera House garnered rave reviews.  Arrivederci combines Grigolo’s selection of songs from the past century that are steeped in Italian tradition with a handful of beautiful arias. Recorded with Pier Giorgio Morandi conducting the Orchestra del Teatro Regio di Parma, this album is a deeply personal homage to the music with which the great tenors of the past have thrilled generations of music lovers. From incomparable arias such as Verdi’s "La donna è mobile" (Rigoletto) and Giordano’s "Amor ti vieta" to the quintessentially Neapolitan tunes of "Core ‘ngrato" (Cardillo) and "Mattinata" (Leoncavallo), Arrivederci reflects the sounds and traditions of a period in Vittorio’s life he will never forget.
Vittorio Grigolo, born in Tuscany and raised in Rome, became a soloist in the choir of the Sistine Chapel at the age of nine, sang the role of the shepherd boy in Puccini’s Tosca in the Rome Opera alongside Luciano Pavarotti at 13, and at 23 was the youngest tenor ever to debut at la Scala in Milan.

Let me start with a warning. For no reason I can think of, Sony Classical has released two different versions of this album. One digi-pack edition, with 20 tracks, and a kind of abbreviated jewel case edition with only 17 tracks and there is no notice anywhere advising you of that fact. Shameful. Unfortunately I saw first and ended up buying the second version and was somewhat disappointed. After his extraordinary operatic debut on record, The Italian Tenor, which I loved, writing a rave review, this new program, a weird mixture, alternating operatic arias, neapolitan classics and pop songs, was not what I expected from my current favorite tenor. But a week later I found in my local store the digi-pack wersion, with three added operatic tracks (Donizetti's Angelo casto from Il Duca d'Alba, Una aura amorosa from Così fan tutte and the Brindisi from Traviata, accompanied by more than serviceable soprano Carmen Giannattasio), all of them beautifully sung, with poise and elegance, as I have come to expect from Grigolo. But equally important, the material has been organized in much better fashion, with all nine operatic arias first, followed by classic songs (Rossini's La danza, Leoncavallo's Mattinata, Torna a Surriento, Core 'ngrato...), and ending up with more recent creations as Dalla's Caruso and Rascel's Arrivederci, Roma, from where the album's title is taken. So this now feels like a proper recital, with an operatic first part, a second part of classic and Neapolitan songs and a few more "popular" items as kind of encores.Read more ›

This album is everything that is Italian. Apart from the ingredible tallent that is Vittorio Grigolo, it is the passion, the vitality and the reason why so many of us visit this country.
A superb selection of the artists favourite songs and Arias and if you close your eyes you will feel the warmth of the Tuscan sun, the sound of the Vespa and the taste of the best coffee taken in the Piazza Garibaldi.
Vittorio brings a freshness to old standards, his phrasing, internation and breath control is beyond compare. Nothing is lost in his top notes. It is no wonder then that he was the youngest lead male to ever perform at La Scala to date.
This is THE VOICE that is opera today. The CD is in the car and I cannot stop playing it, but then I have a passion for la Bella Italia myself. I do not usually compare one artist from another just appreciate what they can give us in their own way.

DIFFERENT VOICE

THIS CD ARRIVED YESTERDAY AND AFTER PLAYING IT I COULD NOT WAIT TO PLAY IT AGAIN .IF YOU HAVE ITALIAN BLOOD YOU NEVER GET TIRED OF HEARING SOME OF THESE WONDERFUL SONGS AND VICTORIO GRIGOLO PUTS SUCH A LOT OF FEELING INTO THEM. I KNOW THERE ARE PURISTS OF OPERA WHO ASK WHY TENORS WANT TO SING THE OLD NEOPOLITAN SONGS WELL THE MELODIES ARE BEAUTIFUL AND THE TENOR VOICE CAN BE STRETCHED TO FULL CAPACITY,AFTER ALL THEY WERE GOOD ENOUGH FOR CARUSO AND GIGLI. ITS A LOVELY CD AND WELLDONE TO VICTORIO.

By Stanley Crowe TOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 Aug. 2013
Format: Audio CD
I had just listened to a recording of the promising Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja and picked up this Grigolo disc on sale to compare. Right away, it needs to be said that Calleja has a much superior voice and approach to singing operatic music. The best that can be said for Grigolo at the moment is that he knows his voice and its limits, and as a result the louder, higher notes are very carefully sung. Even with that care, the voice hardens and the vibrato widens under pressure. When he sings softly, the voice is pleasant and the phrasing apt -- but for him, on this disc at least, singing softly is sort of crooning in a whispery way. That might pass muster in the popular songs, but it isn't credible stylistically or expressively in the arias. In the "Libiamo" from "Traviata," for example, the soprano, a name unknown to me, is a much more forthright and confident singer. Is he a "tenore leggiero" with a future in light roles? Maybe -- it's hard to say from a disc produced like this, almost as a "pop" disc. I would be happy to give him the benefit of the doubt. But don't play Bjoerling's "M'appari" after Grigolo's, and don't play Pavarotti's "Angelo casta e bel" after Grigolo's. And -- moving to the popular side, try Bergonzi in "Turna a Surriento" to see how that can be made thrilling, even while you admit that Grigolo's small-scale attempt is pleasant enough. I love "Core 'ngrato," so for comparison, I found Vargas, live in Mexico City, on an old Laserlight disc from 1995. The sound is a bit too close-up, but you see immediately what Grigolo lacks -- Vargas's soft singing is full-toned, warm, and supported by his breathing, and the climaxes ring out thrillingly -- and Vargas doesn't have a huge voice. I'm damning Grigolo with faint praise here. Let's see if he can have a real career in opera. In "crossover" he's better than Bocelli, I think.
