Biography

In May 2009, three fresh-faced teenagers, Piero Barone (17), Ignazio Boschetto (16), and Gianluca Ginoble (16), appeared on the popular Italian talent show “Ti Lascio Una Canzone” and dazzled television viewers with their flawless rendition of the Neapolitan standard “O Sole Mio.” The boys, who won the competition easily, decided their group needed a name. “Il ...

Editorial Reviews

2012 live release from the teenage tenor trio. Il Volo Takes Flight - Live From the Detroit Opera House was filmed last year while the group was on their first North American concert tour and captures the genuine excitement of their live performance along with the stunning crowd reaction the group has received in every city they have performed. The project was produced by Grammy award winning producer Humberto Gatica (Michael Buble) and renowned Italian singer and producer Tony Renis. The show includes Italian classics such as "'O Sole Mio" and "Un Amore Cosi Grande" as well as a magnificent version of the classic Charlie Chaplin song "Smile".

5.0 out of 5 stars Voice from Heaven March 6, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Let me start this review by saying..... I hate opera, I am a grandma ie..old lady and have always hated opera voices, no matter whose they were.

Well Il Volo has changed that, the first time I heard them open their mouths I knew I was hearing something special.Rich voices full of passion and a love for their art, emotion and an evidence of the enjoyment for the very words and music,a pride and devotion to their heritage all shines through and transaltes into a wonderful experience in a world that sees far too few young people embrace our best traditions. I have had this MP3 on my computer every day since I bought it. I am beginning to memorize the songs, and they are in Italian, I do not speak Italian.

Don't take my word for it, listen to the samples, and fall in love with some of the most beautiful, passionate voices you have heard in a long time. Not 5 stars, 10 stars!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Il Volvo April 1, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I cannot believe how magnificent these young men's voices are. Only 18 years old, each of them. No doubt they have a gift from God to share with the entire world. Saw the "Il Volvo in Flight" on a PBS televesion performance and was astounded. Bought both of their CD's on Amazon.com and never grow tired of listening to them.

4.0 out of 5 stars TRANSLATION OF ITALIAN SONG TITLES March 8, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Dear Music Appreciators,

IL VOLO...TAKES FLIGHT: LIVE FROM THE DETROIT OPERA HOUSE finds the three powerful young tenors launching their heavenly voices into the Motown stratosphere. Every song is as smooth as a baby's bottom.

Translation of Italian Song Titles Performed by Il Volo

1 - Il Mondo = The World
2 - Un Amore Cosi' Grande = A Love So Great
3 - Ti Voglio Tanto Bene = I Love You So Much
4 - Granada = Granada (Spanish city)
5 - E Piu' Ti Penso = And More Than You Think
6 - o' Sole Mio = My Sun
7 - Non Ti Scordar Di Me = Do Not Forget Me
8 - This Time
9 - Smile
10 - Mattinata = Morning
11 - Music Proibita = Forbidden Music
12 - Mamma = Mother
13 - La Luna Hizo Esto = The Moon Did This
14 - Notte Stellata (The Swan) = Starry Night
15 - Funiculi' Funicula' = Funiculi Funicula - song written in 1880 for the opening of "the first funicular cable car on Mount Vesuvius" (Wikipedia).

Fun Facts:

- As indicated by the titles, just two of the album's fifteen tracks are performed completely in English, though track 13 does feature some English vocals.
- track 5 is a world famous Neapolitan song originally composed in 1898 and has since been performed by countless well-known musical artists. Elvis Presley commissioned new lyrics to be used with the melody, turning the 1898 song into his worldwide hit "It's Now Or Never."
- The lyrics on track 9 were written for music composed by Charlie Chaplin for his 1936 film MODERN TIMES. The song has been covered by a long list of luminaries, but was originally popularized by Nat King Cole. Brooke Shields reported that "Smile" was Michael Jackson's favorite song.
- Track 13 was written by legendary songwriter Diana Warren and features guest vocals by Pia Toscano (American Idol).

Happy Listening,

Constant Listener

4.0 out of 5 stars Il Volo DVD May 17, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have purchased the cd, dvd, & the Deluxe set for a gift and the music is incredible. These guys bring so much emotion to their songs that I want to weep when I listen. I am lifted out of the doldrums of my work routine when I plug in my headphones.

The only criticism I have is that of the DVD. I saw the concert on PBS & expected the the DVD to be the same and IT IS NOT! It is missing a number of songs, one of which is my favorite, so in that respect the DVD was disappointing. I would still have bought it but would have paid MORE just to have the whole concert that I saw on PBS.

I am just as confused as you are for the same reason. I pre-ordered the only edition listed at the time I pre-ordered. If it's not the Deluxe edition, then I'll order that one, too, later. I can always give the Standard edition to a friend. I am so disappointed that the gorgeous French song... Read more
