Enjoyable but that is all
The CD begins with the 1958 international hit" Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu" by the world renowned vocalist Domenico Modugno. Next, the 1977 best seller "Amada Mia, Amore Mio", originally introduced by Paolo Zavallone, is faithfully performed by The Starlite Orchestra.
The classic," Ariverderci Roma", originally released in 1955, is performed brilliantly by Alfredo Messina. The next track,"Ciribiribin" is a true audio pleasure. The artist is the exceptional arranger, conductor and gifted accordionist, Angelo Dipippo.
This piece was composed in 1898 by Alberto Pesta and was adapted at one time, by Harry James to serve as his 1939 band theme.
Much of the remaining music focuses on pieces adapted from classic opera; specifically, Tosca (1900), Turandot (1926), Fedora (1898) and La Travialo (1853). The brilliant Italian tenor, Fabio Armiliato, who made his U.S. acting debut in this film, performs flawlessly on six of these numbers.
"Mio Dolce Sogno", composed by the legendary Giovanni Vicari is performed by the late great mandolin and violinist Butch Baldassari. Sadly, his musical career was cut short by his untimely passing.
Another track of interest is Emilio Levi's popular 1937 rendition of "Non Dimenticar le Mie Parole". It's a musical treat for any listener's ears.
Finally, a Woody Allen soundtrack would not be complete without a big band selection and this score doesn't disappoint. Included is the 1945 Eddie Condon orchestra's 1945 classic,"When Your Lover Has Gone".
This musical valentine is highly recommended.

There was very little music played during the arias. Don't remember it that way in the movie. I am at a disadvantage here because we have come to the coast for a month. Read morePublished on February 4, 2014 by Lucy D Fowlkes

I ordered the wrong version. I just wanted the orchestra version of To Rome with Love. Too bad, I did not like the Amada mio Amore mio.Published on July 25, 2013 by Mara Singh
