Product Description

Andrea Bocelli's new studio album is a collection of the most famous Italian songs - including Mamma , Funiculi Funicula and Santa Lucia . They are the songs which have enchanted Andrea since childhood. Released to coincide with his 50th birthday, the album is a personal tribute to his musical heritage. Popularised through concert, radio and record and the film industry by the great tenors of the 19th and 20th centuries, this selection of songs is a celebration of the Italian tenor tradition . Thanks to the legendary voices of Enrico Caruso, Beniamino Gigli, Franco Corelli, Mario Lanza and Luciano Pavarotti, these songs have become a huge global export and fuelled the romance of generations to come. Incanto is also a homage to Love . It includes a group of songs which have told love stories in music for the past 170 years. The repertoire is a tribute to the many faces and places of love: love for a mother (Mamma); love for a woman (O surdato 'nammurato , Era di maggio , Un amore cosi grande , Non ti scordar di me ); love for a place (the pier in Santa Lucia, Mount Vesuvio in Funiculi Funicula ); love for a city (Napoli, Granada) and love for a country (Italy). Love for Italy , and a particular affection for Naples are prevalent themes throughout Incanto. Andrea has chosen one contemporary Neapolitan song - the "tarantella" Pulcinella , which highlights his fond connection to Naples and the city's unique position in the past, present and future of Italian song. The deluxe edition sets Andrea's songs in the romantic context of 1950s Naples. The archive materials provide a nostalgic snapshot of 1950s glamour, when Naples was the honeypot for the rich and famous. The footage captures the spirit of romance and optimism during the days of Andrea's childhood - a sense of optimism prevalent in post war Italy around the time of Andrea's birth is captured by the visual themes of the album. The incomparable natural beauty of southern Italy is celebrated, as well as the magical aura of the 1950s and La dolce vita , which has enchanted generation upon generation since. The DVD also includes an interview with Andrea shot in different locations in Naples.

(Amazon.co.uk Review) Incanto is the first studio album from Italian operatic star Andrea Bocelli since 2006's Amore, stop-gapped of course by the following year's Vivere. Now 20 albums deep and heading for 70 million sales worldwide, there doesn't seem to be much Bocelli can do wrong, though perhaps key to his success is his refusal to rest on his laurels--to always present a considered and varied selection of material. On Incanto he again offers a well-selected mix of folk songs, operatic evergreens, and musical hits. Opening with a stunning collaboration with singer Veronica Berti on “Un Amore Cosi Grande" (“A Love So Great"), the album gets off to an impassioned start. A romantic thread is weaved through “O Surdato Nnammurato", Cesare Andrea Bixio's “Mamma", and “Voglio Vivere Cosi", while album highlights include Neopolitan classic “Santa Lucia" and the 19th-century folk song “Funiculi Funi! cula"--an ode to the first funicular on Mount Vesuvius. Add to that the soaring “Because" and the sweeping “Era De Maggio" (featuring Anna Bonitatibus), and you have what is arguably Bocelli's best collection since Romanza. --Danny McKenna

A voice like Andrea Bocelli's only comes along every generation or so, (if that) Caruso, Lanza, Pavarotti and Now Bocelli; They are my big 4. Not only does Bocelli have wonderful opera skills, but also tremendous pop singing skills, as well. As for classical singing; Bocelli's breath control is amazing; no one holds high, mid, and low notes (sang either intensely or softly) as long as Bocelli does. His diction is excellent; His tone is wonderful; His color is right in sink to the song being performed, dark or light, and all shads around those as needed. He has that tenor ring that can rise up over an orchestra, he sings just beautifully. As for his pop singing again it's spectacular; Bocelli can sing a pop song either in a classical way, or a bluesy way or almost anyway. He has tremendous versatility, I would rank him right at the top of pop singing for all time. Bocelli can sing big, bold, intense and beautiful, or can show us a soft side it seems like he is singing in one's ear, very sweetly and beautiful.

In canto is a CD of classic Italian love songs (Naples) and are many songs that Andrea has loved since childhood and most of us are familiar with. These songs were made famous by the great tenors of the 19th and 20th centuries, . In canto song selection includes Mamma; O surdato 'nammurato , Era di maggio , Un amore cosi grande , Non ti scordar di me; Funiculi Funicula; Granada, Voglio vivere cosi, Santa Lucia, Pulcinella, Non ti scordar di me, Marechiare, Vieni sul mar, Because, E vui durmiti ancora, Amapola, Un amore cosi grande. It is a wonderful selecton and I love the inclusion of Because, which I have heard Andrea sing live many times, It is the best version since Mario Lanza, and belive it or not Bocelli hits an even higher end note. You will enjoy all the songs hear they are wonderfully done.

This is a must have Bocelli CD.

This is absolutely the best of Bocelli that I have heard. What a grand collection of songs, and such a voice! Right up there next to Pavarotti!

Andrea Bocelli has a voice that is a gift from God. On this CD he mixes Italian and English songs with arrangements that include everything from lush orchestrations to snappy pop tunes. It will remind you of a stroll along the Via Veneto, a boat ride with a gondolieri in Venice, or a glass of vino in the piazza San Marco. A delightful offering for any music lover!

Andrea Bocelli's latest CD can be bought in the Deluxe edition which includes a DVD that is well-worth having. On the DVD, Bocelli is interviewed while in the Teatro San Carlo in Naples - where many of the operatic tenors of the past (Caruso, Gigli, Tagliavini, Pavarotti, Corelli) had their glory moments. He talks of how they affected him as a listener and how he hopes that his renditions of that same repertoire would touch his listeners in the same way. On this CD, however, Bocelli does not sing the heavier operatic arias but the (primarily) Neapolitan melodies where he can bring his considerable gifts to the table. Here we do not have those heavier operatic voices overwhelming the songs by the very power and "heft" of the voice - but rather the lighter voice of Bocelli who serves these songs so well. (And Bocelli also sings "Because" in his improved English - a song recorded once by the superb Franco Corelli whose English version of this song is fall on the floor funny). Bocelli's renditions of these wonderful songs are truly touching - and his take on the Neapolitan melody, "Era Di Maggio" is absolutely sublime. And, while he sings, the DVD takes you to Italy - during the two world wars - where the suffering of the Italian people is heartbreakingly on display...to the heroic rescue by the Americans which forged an endurable bond between the two peoples, still strong and magical to this day.Read more ›
