Product Description

Product Description


Not content with the simplistic "crossover" formula, superstar tenor Andrea Bocelli has been pursuing alternative paths since he emerged as a vocal phenomenon in the mid-1990s: operatic classics and contemporary popular song. The singer's last few albums have showcased his love for the former (including homages to his beloved Verdi: the Requiem and Verdi aria collection). But Cieli di Toscana ("Tuscan Skies") marks a triumphant return to the pop idiom last explored on Sogno, offering a highly varied series of the kind of beautifully crafted contemporary melodies that initially won Bocelli acclaim.

The familiar cast of songwriter-collaborators (including Francesco Sartori, responsible for the smash success "Time to Say Goodbye") mixes with new blood; Bocelli himself unveils his songwriting talents on "Il Diavolo e l'Angelo." It's a highly produced affair, but behind all the gloss, Bocelli sings with a newfound, relaxed, even mellow quality. There are intimately touching moments--"L'Incontro," a tribute to his first son featuring Bocelli's own poetry as read by U2's Bono--as well as soaring flights of lyricism (the duet "L'Abitudine" with Italian singer Helena). And on "Mascagni," with its quotes from that composer's operas, Bocelli makes another nod to his classical affinities. But whatever the style, Bocelli is a singer who knows how to go straight to his listeners' hearts. --Sarah Chin

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Bocelli's Best April 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Although I don't live in Tuscany, I do live in Italy parttime now, and I love the music of Andrea Bocelli more than ever (I have all of his CDs and DVDs). Bocelli, a Tuscan, himself (he was born in Lajatico), isn't my favorite when it comes to opera, but I think his voice is perfect for the songs on CIELI DI TOSCANA. He's a singer who puts his heart and soul into everything...and it certainly shows.
The fourteen songs on CIELI DI TOSCANA were written by Bocelli and others and they are all pure joy to listen to. They all evoke the blue Tuscan skies, the rolling hills, the groves of olive trees, the hidden treasures tucked away in the ancient villages.
Bocelli's voice on all fourteen tracks is at its best. The CD showcases his full range and his full range of abilities. The orchestra is never overpowering and compliments Bocelli wonderfully. And, wonderfully, the lyrics are included in the liner notes. I've learned enough Italian now to understand the songs without the notes, but I need the notes to sing along...something I like to do...but something my family might not like so much. "Il Diavolo e L'Angelo," written by Bocelli, is one of my favorites. It's a bit glossy, but it's so much fun, I didn't mind. And, for those of you who prefer Bocelli "mellow," there's plenty of that on this CD as well.
I definitely think CIELI DI TOSCANA is a much more accessible CD than ROMANZA and if you're new to Andrea Bocelli (you shouldn't be), I would begin with either this CD or SOGNO. Both are wonderfully evocative of Italy and both showcase Andrea Bocelli's talent, warmth and love for the country of his birth.

5.0 out of 5 stars surprise Jan. 31 2004
By Nas
Format:Audio CD
I've heard Andrea sing on television several times. I always thought he sang nicely but I never purchased any of his music. I borrowed his CD from the local library just for fun. I was pleasantly surprised by this CD. It was different from seeing him on TV--somehow more powerful. I don't know much about opera but I know this is nice music. I also know I could never sing like Andrea does, it really is something to admire. Anyone who gives him less than 5 stars for this work better know how to out-sing Andrea! This CD would be a nice addition to any music collection.

I definitely have a love for all types of music and being a musician myself my ear has a flare for good music. And this music is suberb. I have had this album for almost 2 years now. I am now listening to it because my soul was hungry for it a few weeks ago. Bocelli's voice and the depth of his emotions goes beyond anything that I have ever heard. I hear these new voices coming out that try to match to Bocelli and I am sorry there isn't any comparison. Bocelli is in a league all his own. I am not a fan of Opera. This album is Italian Pop music with a Romantic flare. It isn't Opera (or classical music). This album and Romanza are both Pop Italian Romance. Much like the songs of Celine Dion and Foreigner. Both Romanza and this album all the songs are well done and seat in your soul forever. I have learned Italian from these songs. Also, these are not manufactured songs as I read in a post. These are musicians playing real instruments playing real music. Not synthesizers (manufactured music) as someone said on the Romanza album. Some of these posts that comment on the negative side are not owners of the album and are ignorant of what music is all about. I have both the Romanza and Tuscan Skies album. They are both superb! And Bocelli when are you coming out with a new album!!!! It has been 2 years and I don't see anything new yet!!! I came here looking for a new album!

5.0 out of 5 stars A CD worth buying Jan. 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I felt the need to review Andrea Bocelli's CD after I read the egotistical reviews of other individuals. Comments such as his terrible phrasing, lack of range, and others put me in a state of disgust. When Andrea Bocelli came to a local arena near me, I had the pleasure of hearing him sing, not only the concert, but was also able to meet him backstage. I have quite an opera fan, and I have yet to hear a tenor that can hit a low F an octave below middle C, then wail on the infamous tenor high C. In the last track, #14, he graces us with his phenomenal Bb numerous times, and holds the last Bb for over 12 seconds. But he is losing his range and has no phrasing? I do not believe that is true. His voice has a light quality which his not totally legit for standing next to Pavarotti, but not everyone can be Pavarotti, and I highly doubt everyone would want to listen to Pavarotti imitators. Bocelli has his own style, and no one will ever be able to capture his sound.
Every CD Andrea Bocelli has release in the US I own, and I guarantee you will enjoy his unique style.

Thanks to Andrea Bocelli and the Ministry of Italian Culture, an ANDREA BOCELLI AWARD, was given to the newcomers. This record is recorded beautifully. Different from all the others, as it is a very special one. He gives an opportunity to new songwriters.
I wonder who does this now-a-days ?
Only a unique person as Maestro Andrea Bocelli will remenber how difficult is to come inside in the world of Arts.
His interpretation in each music is outstanding. To the ones that find him melancholic, I am not with you. Andrea Bocelli never makes me sad. He reacts on the opposite side. He brings life, light, beautiful interpertation of a Tenor ( that originally Opera, was popular music ). I would not consider this record a pop album. Its music. Contemporany, because Andrea does give in each music a different interpretation, as in all of his records. He can change registers, as I have never seen, before. Besides, he possess a high quality as a performer or as a composer, he never mentions the name of others, as for him, he respects each individual. This is why I am here to share with his other fans, what I like about his Music. Andrea Bocelli will stay in the History of Music.
