Product Description


Opera is in fashion, and the woods are full of pop vocalists who think they have the chops to sing arias. The best contender so far is Andrea Bocelli, who at least has a real voice, if a small one, and sometimes manages a really exciting tenor sound. Unfortunately, he is inconsistent in his tone and production, and, despite the fact that he's singing in his native language, he often sounds as though he has only the barest idea of what the words mean. The Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Vladimir Fedoseyev, plays stodgily. Anyone with a real interest in tenor arias would be much better advised to check out recordings by the young Luciano Pavarotti. --Sarah Bryan Miller

3.0 out of 5 stars Much better first half than the second.... Oct. 14 2002
Format:Audio CD
I was surprised by many of the reviews here because I thought the first half of operatic material went much better than the second half of the more "popular" songs... Of course, these aren't the best versions of these operatic works I've ever heard (more refined versions by legendary tenors abound in the classical section in good music stores). However, I did enjoy the ones here. While lacking the vocal strength and technique of a more accomplished tenor, Bocelli instead emphasises a solid, pleasing tone and more importantly: appropriate and tasteful phrasing with clear pronunciation (no over-indulgent vocal gestures). This is why I think "Nessun Dorma" here stands up well to many other versions. Impressive also is "Una Furtiva Lagrima", in which some unexpected changes in color and texture make for some touching moments... and contrary to what the most negative reviews would lead you to believe, Bocelli performs well in these arias and they are by no means "beyond his abilities" nor are they pieces that "don't fit" his style. And my review is based on this recording, so if he could or could not be heard over an orchestra in real life is completely irrelevant.
But the second half of Neopolitan songs, they were a HUGE dissapointment... Personally, I'm not a fan of over-orchestrating and over-inflating these traditional songs and yet that's exactly what happened here. I'd rather hear some quaint mandolins, some accordians and a more subtle, intimate setting to highlight the singer to better capture the romantic essense of this kind of music. But that's just the start of what went wrong here....
For some reason, the sound quality of this recording is very dark compared to other Bocelli recordings...

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful voice June 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
A wonderful voice. One feels the heat in his voice, the CD is quite good, for those that hope to hear Bocelli intoning Neapolitan songs and some Arias.
My darlings, Lamento di Federico and Ah, la paterna mano.

Bocelli should only sing for his own amazement. He has neither voice nor style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musical Tour of Italy July 31 2003
Format:Audio CD
Take a trip to Italy by listening to this wonderful collection of Italian classics. The soaring "Nessun Dorma," the passionate "O Sole Mio," the nostalgic "Santa Lucia luntana," the uplifting "Ave Maria" are all here, plus many more.
With his beautiful tenor voice, Andrea Bocelli is the guide as we traverse the barriers of time and space and are transported to this far away, romantic country.
This is an hour of escape, of beauty and romance, of traveling the musical landscape of Italy. It is an hour of being exposed to the passion, emotion, and spirit of the Italian people, brought to us by a singer who represents them, but who is also able to cross over to other cultures, other languages, and people of all persuasions, because, as always, he sings from the heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tribute to Caruso, and all great singers Dec 11 2002
Format:Audio CD
How beautiful is this record, recorded much before it was released. Its a record dedicated to the biggest on earth, that like him once were so criticized. Its a Tribute to Caruso,and others and to Luciano Pavarotti. Luciano ended a period in the classics, and enjoys today what he does best. To teach others. His charity concerts, Pavarotti and friends, where Andrea Bocelli participates in some occasions, is the gratitude of one the greatest to recognize in public Andrea Bocelli as a Tenor. This liason makes the great friendship and share the love of music, that these two monsters, do, when they are together. This record, from the first music to the last, is beautiful to listen at any time of the day, because Maestro Andrea Bocelli gives us its unique interpretation of the Songs, and his gratitude specially to Franco Corelli, who is still alive, and I am sure he will be proud of Andrea Bocelli. I would very much to know what Maestro Franco Corelli, thinks of Andrea Bocelli career. You gave us, after you, Franco Corelli, the best of Opera, the one that will make history after you, and the great Tenors of all times. Thank you Maestro Franco Corelli.

5.0 out of 5 stars A small voice? Give me a break Sept. 11 2002
Format:Audio CD
I read a review on this board concerning arias. Someone had the lack of tatse to imply that Bocelli had an "inconsitent" voice. Perhaps one might use a referrence manual to look up such words before using them? Even the great tenor Pararotti has regailled friends about Bocelli's voice. A simple comparison between my favorite piece "Core N'Grate" by Jose Carares(sp) and Bocelli will show even the most unschooled listener that there is no comparisson of range, emotion or clearity--Bocelli wins hands down. Period. I have always been a "Pavarotti" person. And I still am--however, I am making room in my collections for Andrea Bocelli.
