Info for Sentimento
Andrea Bocelli is the biggest selling classical recording artist ever - a musical icon who bridges the gap between pop and classical. This emotionally charged new album features Bocelli's rich vocals accompanied by the London Symphony Orchestra in selections such as Rodrigo's Aranjuez, Liszt's Liebestraum, Offenbach's Barcarolle, and more.
Sentimento is something of a departure for Andrea Bocelli. Instead of operatic arias, the tenor has recorded a disc of ballads with Lorin Maazel and the London Symphony Orchestra. In fact the two men deserve to share the billing: Maazel not only orchestrated the songs but also wrote--and performed--the violin obbligato parts which decorate each song. The result is a charming selection of pieces by composers including Tosti, Leoncavallo and Offenbach.
The disc opens with an arrangement of the famous slow movement from Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez; with its pizzicato bass and weaving voice and violin it sounds almost baroque. A second arrangement, of Liszt's Liebestraum No. 3, features words penned by Bocelli himself. Bocelli and Maazel deliver spirited (but by no means flawless) performances throughout and are supported admirably by the LSO--just listen to the orchestra go in Rossini's "La danza".
When played in a computer, the disc reveals a short introductory video featuring both Bocelli and Maazel while the richly illustrated booklet reflects the passion Bocelli sings of in each song. Hopefully, Sentimento will spark renewed interest in this repertory, which was explored by such greats as Enrico Caruso and John McCormack.

Andrea Bocelli‘s new studio album, “Passione” is filled with romance and beauty. “Passione” is a lush collection of Mediterranean love songs featuring duets with global pop stars Jennifer Lopez, Nelly Furtado, and the late Edith Piaf. The album reunites Bocelli with 16-time Grammy Award-winning producer David Foster, who produced Bocelli’s 2006 release “Amore,” which sold more than 4.2 million copies.
“Passione” is in essence the second volume of “Amore,” with a “fil rouge” which ideally connects the albums. As with “Amore,” which featured timeless masterworks, “Passione” includes several beloved classics such as “Love Me Tender,” “Girl From Ipanema,” and “Sarà Settembre,” (better known to English-speaking audiences as Neil Diamond’s “September Morn”). Jennifer Lopez is featured on the soft and sensual track “Quizás Quizás Quizás” and Nelly Furtado joins Bocelli on “Corcovado.” The album also features a duet with the late French chanteuse Edith Piaf on the song “La Vie En Rose.”
On the album, Bocelli sings in six languages (Italian, English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Neapolitan) with his unmistakable voice, as Foster accompanies him on piano, along with Peruvian guitarist Ramon Stagnaro. The sensual sound is rounded out by Cuban, Brazilian, and Portuguese rhythms and a 63-piece orchestra recorded in London.
“Andrea continues to be my favorite singer of all time,” Foster declares. “I pride myself on working with great voices, but he transcends that. He's a singer for all people, from the common man to the Pope.”
Bocelli is an iconic figure in music with a myriad of breathtaking career achievements to his name. The Italian tenor is the most successful classical solo artist ever and one of the best-selling artists in music history, period, with more than 80 million albums sold worldwide. He is also credited with enabling the core classical repertoire to cross over and find a home atop the international pop charts, creating a new genre of music along the way. He has performed for four U.S. presidents, two popes, and the British royal family, as well as at ceremonies for the Olympic Games and the World Cup. He has been praised by such luminaries as Luciano Pavarotti, Franco Corelli (his beloved teacher and guide), Zubin Mehta, José Carreras, Lorin Maazel, Renée Fleming, and Celine Dion.
