About the Artist

ANDREA BOCELLI CELEBRATES A DECADE OF BEST-SELLING RECORDINGS WITH HIS FIRST-EVER GREATEST HITS COLLECTION, THE BEST OF ANDREA BOCELLI - VIVERE CD IN-STORES OCTOBER 30TH ON SUGAR MUSIC/DECCA September 11, 2007 - (New York, NY) -- For the first time during his historic career the world's best selling tenor, Andrea Bocelli, will be releasing a collection of his greatest hits. The Best Of Andrea Bocelli - Vivere, will be released on Sugar Music/Decca on October 30th, marking a decade of chart-topping albums that have made him a household name and beloved cultural figure the world over.

The Best Of Andrea Bocelli - Vivere will feature selections from Bocelli's wildly popular recordings including Romanza, certified 4 times platinum, Sogno certified 2 times platinum, and his most recent platinum disc, Amore. Highlights include "Time To Say Goodbye" his breakthrough smash with Sarah Brightman, "The Prayer," another duet made famous with Celine Dion, and the more recent Bocelli staples "Because We Believe" and "Besame Mucho" among others. Several new tracks are also exclusively available on Vivere, including new compositions by the renowned and accomplished David Foster, who also holds producing credits on the songs and was one of the creative forces behind Amore. Other notable guests on the disc include the acclaimed classical pianist Lang Lang and Latin singing sensation Laura Pausini.

2007 is already shaping up to be another banner year for Bocelli. In July, the superstar staged his first-ever, pop only, live concert set in the stunning hills of Tuscany, which will be broadcast on PBS this December. Andrea continues to be one of PBS' most visible artists, with this being the follow-up to the Emmy-nominated "Under The Desert Sky" special which aired in 2006. Bocelli also appears on the forthcoming new album from Chris Botti, Italia, to be released in September. This fall, Andrea returns to the U.S. for another round of high-profile promotional appearances, as well as several concerts in support of the greatest hits collection - dates to be announced soon. Vivere, meaning "to live," is certainly something Andrea Bocelli does to his fullest. Having sold over 55 million albums worldwide, he continues to display a singularly unique ability to straddle both pop and classical repertoire with sincerity, conviction, grace and his unmistakable soaring tenor. One of the most sought after performers in the world, he has recorded duets with the biggest names in music including Christina Aguilera, Stevie Wonder, Katharine McPhee, Kenny G and the aforementioned Brightman, Botti and Dion. Andrea also recently sang at the funeral service for one of his true heroes, Luciano Pavarotti, where he paid tribute to the great tenor with Mozart's ``Ave Verum Corpus.'' A media darling who has appeared everywhere from American Idol to the Today Show multiple times, he has been called "one of opera's most successful crossover stars" by The Wall Street Journal.

Andrea Bocelli, the world's most popular tenor (and Best selling) and pop sensation as well, has recorded The Best of Andrea Bocelli, Vivere what is a wonderful collection of his crossover (semi classical pop) songs and is a must for every Bocelli fan. Every song on the CD is wonderful and all the hit songs have been re mastered (or remixed) and sound better than ever.

The Songs include a nice selection of some of Bocelli's best work (it would take a 10 CD set to give us all of his best work-both clasicl and Popular); Bocelli has a very beautiful voice, that expresses much emotion. His tone and diction are excellent and his Volume is much better then the critics claim, he voice is always moving, his singing touches one's heart and goes righ into ones soul. The tracks include Songo; from the Songo album; It may be his best song ever. IL Mare Calmo Della Sera from the Romanza album (and an Earlier Album with the tital IL Mare Clamo Della Sera); this was his first hit and was used my Todd Eldridge, figure Skater, in the Olympics and US championships. Canto Della Sera, from the Songo album; Besame Mucho, from the Amore album; Mille lune Mille Onde, (included on the Delux edition as an extra track and is the song used in the Brilla Pasta advertisement) from Cieili Di Toscana; Time to Say Goodbye-Con Te Partino (with Sarah Brightman), from the Romanza album; Vivo Per Lei (with Giorgia who is an Italian pop star with a wonderful voice) from the Romanza album; Melodrama from the Cieli De Toscana album; The Prayer (with Celine Dion, from the Songo Album and the Quest soundtrack, (as well as Celine Dion albums;) and Because We Believe from the Amore album, the great theme for the Olympic's in Italy.

This cd isn't a compilation only, you can find some new songs. It's incredible that I could find this cd in Argentina some days before its release in America, and in that country it can fe found in two versions: the italian and the spanish version. The content of both versions are
similar, with very few differences. For the known songs, there's nothing new, and in general terms, nothing wrong with the songs selected.
The new songs ("La voce del silenzio", "A te" and "Bellisime Stelle") are just beautiful. The only real surprise is a new version of "Vivire", sung as a duet with Laura Pausini, with a new english lyric in the italian CD version, where Laura sings in english while Andrea does it in italian, this is the only thing I don't like too much. In the spanish CD version, both Andrea and Laura sings in spanish, which has much more sense. The arrangements are also different compared with the version appeared on the "Romanza" CD, which I prefer to this new.
If you buy this cd, you won't regret, it's a nice work.

To me, unwrapping a Christmas present that includes a beautiful CD/DVD pack such as Andrea Bocelli's DeLuxe Edition of "Vivere" is one of the most wonderful things Christmas is made of. To Patrick and Deanna, a million thanks to both of you for your thoughtfulness! I have been enjoying this lovely CD and the amazing DVD showing Andrea Bocelli's "American Dream" concert at the Statue of Liberty.

The CD has an impressive collection of sixteen songs saturated with beautiful melodies and romantic lyrics flawlessly interpreted by Mr. Bocelli starting off with "La Voce Del Silenzio" to the final track, David Foster's "Because We Believe." His special guests are Laura Pausini in "Vivere," Celine Dion in "The Prayer," Kenny G in "A Te," showcasing his masterful sax playing, Sarah Brightman in "Con Te Partirò," Giorgia in "Vivo Per Lei" and pianist Lang Lang in "Io Ci Sarò."

Mr. Bocelli is not only an outstanding singer, but also a lyricist and composer in his own right. Some of the Italian lyrics from the repertoire were written by him and these are "Because We Believe" and "Io Ci Sarò." The title track "Vivere" is one remarkable song with meaningful lyric sang in an engaging duet with Laura Pausini. This song was co-written by a team of lyricists and composers namely Gerardina Travato (Italian lyrics), Eugenio Finardi (English lyrics), Celso Valli and Angelo Anastacio (music).
