Notes & Reviews:

Andrea Bocelli is accompanied by some of the most stirring music in Italian repertoire. Andrea Chenier is a tale of love that stays in one's soul forever. Bocelli partners with the aristocratic soprano Violeta Urmana, who has sung at the Met with much success.

Gramophone Magazine
[Bocelli's] voice is real enough and unmistakably personal in timbre; he also sings with some emotional commitment, enunciating clearly and (often) phrasing imaginatively...[Urmana] has both warmth and authority: there is a reserve of aristocratic grandeur in her most tender utterances.

The Guardian
Violeta Urmana is a high-voltage Maddalena, and there's a superb Gérard from Lucio Gallo...Marco Armiliato is the exciting conductor, really bringing home the anguish of lives caught at a crisis point of history which ultimately lies beyond individual comprehension.

BBC Music Magazine
Violeta Urmana is a quality Maddalena, Lucio Gallo a stalwart Carlo
