Notes & Reviews:

This is a DELUXE EDITION which includes a CD and DVD in a hard bound book. A standard version is available as DEC B00121161. 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 Bocelli since childhood. Released to coincide with his 50th birthday, the album is a personal tribute to his musical heritage. Popularized 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.

Andrea Bocelli's 2008 studio album, Incanto, is a homage to Love featuring a group of songs which have told love stories in music for the past 170 years. CD and Deluxe CD/DVD features 14 new recordings plus the documentary telling the story of Incanto (enchantment) highlighting the romance and lust of Italy during the 1950's. It is a collection of the most famous Italian songs, including 'Mamma', 'Funiculi Funicula' and 'Santa Lucia'. They are the songs which have enchanted Bocelli since childhood. Popularized 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.

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Andrea Bocelli (tenor); Veronica Berti (vocals); Fausto Mesolella (classical guitar); Maurizio Sansone (keyboards); Paolo Costa (bass guitar); Gianluca Mirra, Lele Melotti (drums); Emidio Ausiello (percussion); Luigi Lombardi D'Aquino, Felice Pitolo, Choeur de la Radio-Television Suisse Italienne, Verdi Grand Symphonic Orchestra Milan, Steven Mercurio.

The most popular crossover opera singer of the present day, Andrea Bocelli mesmerizes both classical and pop audiences without compromising his artistic integrity, although on this best-selling 2008 release the Tuscan tenor leans on chestnuts from the Sicilian and Neapolitan canon. Familiar folk songs like "Funiculi, Funicula" and the gorgeous "Santa Lucia" (made famous by Enrico Caruso and, later, Elvis) come to thrilling life here, although the standout may be a joyful rendition of Bruno Cherubini's "Mamma" that will have listeners reaching for the Kleenex.
