The Sicilian

Notes & Reviews:

The traditional songs of The Sicilian, freshly arranged by Yvan Cassar - producer of successful C'est magnifique, Alagna's first DG solo album - sparkle with fun, pathos and colour. One of this album's many highlights is Nino Rota's song "Parla piu piano", love theme of the legendary Coppola film trilogy, The Godfathe.

Notes & Reviews:

Influenced by musical heroes Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota, Sicilien is the 2008 album from French operatic tenor Roberto Alagna. Inspired by his Sicilian immigrant parents, the Yvan Cassar-produced 13 tracks include interpretations of traditional Italian folk standards ("Sicilia Beddi," "A Lu Mircatu"), original compositions ("Ninna Nanna"), and a reworking of "Parla Piu Piano," aka "Love Theme from The Godfather." ~ Jon O'Brien
