Editorial Reviews

With his new album, Vittorio shows his credibility beyond the opera stage and reaches out to a much broader audience. Arrivederci is comprised of beloved arias and famous Italian songs popularized by the great tenors, all sung in Vittorio's distinctive and passionate style.

With Arrivederci (which means "see you again" in Italian), Vittorio also pays homage to a golden era from last century when life was simpler and tenors, along with movie stars, were the ultimate icons of their generation. Explaining his reasons for choosing this particular repertoire, Vittorio says, "Arrevederci looks back to the first album, but also revisits the values and colors of an Italian tradition and, along with it, a huge amount of beautiful music from the last century, the likes of which will never again be written."

5.0 out of 5 stars Vittorio Grigolo: Class October 17, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Vittorio Grigolo will make his Los Angels Opera debut this year as Roméo in Gounod's Roméo et Juliette opposite Nino Machaidze: we finally get to see if he is as appealing on stage as he is on his recordings! Young, strikingly handsome, intelligent and sensitive, Grigolo possesses a voice that is not huge but is one of exceptional quality and control. Once seeing the name of this album ARRIVEDERCI some of his followers may wonder if he has 'sold out' to the popular crowd instead of polishing his gifts as an opera star. But we must all remember that his first album 'In the Hands of Love' was one of light 'Popera' as he calls it. Relax - he seems to know what he is doing!

Vittorio Grigolo (b. February 19, 1977) was born in Arezzo, but raised in Rome. 'He began singing by the age of four. When he was nine years old he accompanied his mother to have her eyes tested and, hearing someone singing from another room, he spontaneously began his own rendition of "Ave Maria." The singer, the optician's father, was so impressed that he insisted Grigolo have an audition for the Sistine Chapel Choir as soon as possible. Young Vittorio was chosen to become part of Sistine Chapel Choir as a soloist. He then studied for five years at the Schola Puerorum at the Sistine Chapel. At age 13 he played the Pastorello in a performance of Tosca at Rome's opera house, where he shared the stage with Pavarotti; becoming known as 'Il Pavarottino'. When 18, Vittorio joined the Vienna Opera Company. He became the youngest man to perform in Milan's La Scala at age 23. He is the first Italian male to be excused compulsory military service on account of his promising career; and also raced Pre-3000 Formula cars for a while until an accident limited his opportunities in this field.

5.0 out of 5 stars A magnificent tenore di grazia September 26, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This very musical, beautifully placed light lyric tenor is well on his way to becoming a worthy successor to Ferruccio Tagliavini and Tito Schipa. The opera arias are very fine and surprisingly individual--although I hope he will avoid Cavaradossi in the theater, at least for several more years. There is an echo of the young Pavarotti's supple texture here, but the instrument is a much more slender, lyrical one. Grigolo is already himself, and a very welcome addition to the ranks of today's tenors. As for the songs, there has not been an album of lighter Italian songs to compare with this recital in decades; comparisons to pop singers are meaningless with an authentic artist of this caliber. The arrangements are tasteful (a genuine rarity in this material) and imaginative, the conducting flexible and inobtrusive in the songs, firm and effective in the arias. The recorded sound is excellent. If you enjoy Neapolitan songs, don't hesitate, this is very fine singing indeed, with plenty of heart and fire. If this young tenor chooses his repertoire carefully, he can look forward to a long and brilliant career. This is a beautiful, healthy young voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good looks and voice to match August 7, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
I had the pleasure of catching a performance of Verdi's La Traviata at the Wiener Staatsoper in Vienna with the 36 year old Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo, in the role of Alfredo. His performance inspired me to listen to his latest CD from 2011, Arrivederci.

I found this album to be immediately accessible and enjoyable. This album will especially appeal to those looking to discover or "get into" operatic music.

Officially, this album would classify as a classical crossover album. The broad appeal is certainly evident from the mix of lighter opera arias and lessor known Italian songs that are featured. I find his voice to be rich and passionate, without becoming shrill and irritating, which sometimes happens with tenor voices. With his looks, voice and charisma, it is easy to see why audiences are falling in love with Vittorio Grigolo.

3.0 out of 5 stars knows his limits? August 15, 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.
