Album Review

Lush yet sensitive arrangements provide an ideal setting for Andrea Bocelli's gorgeous vocals on Aria: The Opera Album. Bocelli tackles famous arias from a variety of operas, adding a couple of lesser-known arias for good measure. The result is a lovely, enchanting record, highlighted by "Questa o Quella," "Recondita Armonia," "Addio, Fiorito Asil," "Come un Bel d di Maggio," "Amor Ti Vieta," "La Dolcissima Effigie," "Pourquoi Me Reveiller," and "Pour Mon Me."

Customer Reviews

Is this the finest lyric tenor before the public?

This varied choice of challenges to the lyric tenor is met by a consistent stream of perfomances just short of 5* rating by the under-characterisation of the roles (with the result that there is a 'sameness' in too many of the roles) in question. His ability to fine -down the voice or expand it at will on the other hand, places him well ahead of the current pack and he is nothing short of thrilling in those parts that require a bit of 'heft', contrasting with an outstanding ability to refine his delivery where required. Try for example the arias from 'Adriana Lecouvreur' and 'Werther' rather than some of the more popular stuff.

No it is not!

There are many tenors who outclass Bocelli by a long way. Not to mention one who is most recently being mourned by music lovers and the wider public alike. Having said that, it's a nice enough sound, but to be honest his interpretations are just a bit dull. Still it's world class compared to Russell Watson!

Fab-buy it

I absolutely love this album and have already played the drm limited version over 200 times!

Often called "the fourth tenor," Andrea Bocelli has established himself as an enduring international star in both classical and pop music. A disciple of Luciano Pavarotti and Zucchero Fornaciari, the blind, Tuscany-born vocalist emerged as one of the most exciting voices in contemporary opera during the late 20th century. His participation in Pavarotti's 1992 hit "Miserere" and Fornaciari's 1993 world tour helped propel him to international attention. Opera represented only one side of his musical...
