Bocelli,Andrea ~ Cieli De Toscana


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

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.

I never though anything could top Romanza (Bocelli's break through smash album/CD) but Cieli Di Toscana is absolutely fabulous. It is constantly in my CD players at home and in my car (I also love the DVD Video companion). I have listened to this CD almost daily since December (2001) when it came out and I just absolutely LOVE this CD and can't get enough. The Singing and Music are so beautiful its beyond belief. This album (CD) brings me so much serenity and is so beautiful its just amazing. Bocelli has the most beautiful voice I have ever hear and its so amazing how gentle and powerful he can sing in the same songs. On Cieli Di Toscana he shows us his great vocal range singing way down low and then way up high, gently and powerfully. His ability to hold beautiful notes is such a wonderful gift from God its astounding. There are so many highlights on this CD and in fact every song is great; But I will mention but a few. Melodramma starts if off and is one of those songs you know will be an instant hit, it has a sadness and beauty to it that will touch your soul. Mille Lune Mille Onde is a very sensual song, it can very definitely set the mood for a romantic night. E Sara A Settembre and is sweet and pretty love song. Resta Qui is a soaring beautiful semi classical song, Bocelli's vocals just sore on this one. L'Abitudine (with Helena such a cute voice) is a nice song and is very cute. E Mi Manchi Tu is possibly my favorite song of all time, I just LOVE this song its so beautiful and Bocelli just sings his heart out on this one, there is such emotion and beauty in his voice only the soulless could not love this song; and I'Ultimo Re is another semi classical song that has that right mix of sadness and beauty that can move one to great emotion, its just beautiful. This is a MUST BUY for any Bocelli fan and any fan of great singing.

Andrea Bocelli seems to generate a love/hate response with many reviewers. Those who love him say he is a wonderful popular singer and they are not far wrong. "Con Te Partiro," "Vivo per Lei," "The Prayer," and "Miserere," are a few "hits" that have won him a large and appreciative audience. He seems to do especially well when partnered with the likes of Sarah Brightman, Marta Sanchez, and Celine Dion.
Those who dislike him compare him with the great Italian tenors like Enrico Caruso, yet no one compares with Caruso for beauty ahd clarity of tone and seeming ease at reaching the High C. Nor is Bocelli in the same league with the classic Italian tenors of the last half century like Franco Corelli, with his powerful voice, or Luciano Pavorotti, with his beautiful tone. Bocelli is not a singer in this tradition and should not be compared with any of these tenors. People who are searching for singers in the great tenor tradition would do well to buy the records of Jose Cura, Roberto Alagna, Placido Domingo, Jose Carreras, and of course, Pavorotti, the new benchmark for tenors.
I own six of Bocelli's CDs and I have found something to like on all of them, Tuscan Skies being no exception. Bocelli is at his best in the lower and mid registers where he is not straining to reach the high notes. At his best his voice is warm and his tone is clear and beautiful.
Today Andrea Bocelli is an international celebrity and few people will be buying his CDs who have not seen him on television or heard him on the radio. It is time to say goodbye to criticizing Andrea Bocelli for what he is not and instead enjoy his music for what it is, a popular entertainment of surprisingly good quality.
