This expansive 17-track compilation spans in scope from Andrea Bocelli’s 1999 Sogno to 2005’s Amore, with five new studio recordings and a live, bonus version of Sogno's title track rounding out the set. All the classical crossover tenor titan’s hits are here, including the duets “Time to Say Goodbye” with Sarah Brightman and “The Prayer,” from the animated feature Quest for Camelot, with Celine Dion. The new song “La voce del silenzio” opens Vivre with an Andean flavor accented by acoustic guitar and woodwinds. Three other new offerings feature guest artists—the empowerment anthem “Dare to Live (Vivre)” is a duet with fellow Italian superstar vocalist Laura Pausini; “A te” is a showcase for saxophonist Kenny G.; and “lo ci saro” pairs Bocelli with the dazzling classical piano prodigy emeritus Lang Lang. “Bellissime stelle,” the fifth new number, is an intriguing hybrid of upbeat acoustic rock and chamber pop.
Must Buy even if you have most of his albums!!
Even for someone like me that has most of his pop albums - Romanza, Sogno, Cieli di Toscana, Per Amore, Andrea, and his latest Amore -- it was still worth it to buy parts of this new album for "La Voce del Silenzio", "A te", "Dare to Live" which is the English version of Vivere and "Bellissime Stelle" and if you buy the entire volume -- the live version of Sogno, the bonus track. It seems the CD has only 15 songs but the iTunes version has 17 songs. I still prefer the original version of Vivere but the English version with mixed Italian passages was an interesting twist. For those that don't have his earlier albums, Because We Believe is a great collaboration with David Foster, English words written by David's daughter and Italian lyrics by Andrea himself. Romanza is what it is, so smooth and romantic, and Andrea sings it beautifully. The entire album is a great compilation of his best works. Andrea indeed has made me appreciate crossover pop-classical, Josh Groban is equally great but a far second to Andrea's voice. In Andrea's album Amore, you should listen to his version of Elvis' Cant Help Falling in Love - you certainly can't help falling in love with his voice!!
Andrea Bocelli, the world's most popular tenor (and Best selling) and pop sensation as well, has recorded The Best of Andrea Bocelli, Vivere what is a wonderful collection of his crossover (semi classical pop) songs and is a must for every Bocelli fan. Every song on the CD is wonderful and all the hit songs have been re mastered (or remixed) and sound better than ever. The Songs include a nice selection of some of Bocelli's best work (it would take a 10 CD set to give us all of his best work-both clasicl and Popular); Bocelli has a very beautiful voice, that expresses much emotion. His tone and diction are excellent and his Volume is much better then the critics claim, he voice is always moving, his singing touches one's heart and goes righ into ones soul. The tracks include Songo; from the Songo album; It may be his best song ever. IL Mare Calmo Della Sera from the Romanza album (and an Earlier Album with the tital IL Mare Clamo Della Sera); this was his first hit and was used my Todd Eldridge, figure Skater, in the Olympics and US championships. Canto Della Sera, from the Songo album; Besame Mucho, from the Amore album; Mille lune Mille Onde, (is the song used in the Brilla Pasta advertisement) from Cieili Di Toscana; Time to Say Goodbye-Con Te Partino (with Sarah Brightman), from the Romanza album; Vivo Per Lei (with Giorgia who is an Italian pop star with a wonderful voice) from the Romanza album; Melodrama from the Cieli De Toscana album; The Prayer (with Celine Dion, from the Songo Album and the Quest soundtrack, (as well as Celine Dion albums;) and Because We Believe from the Amore album, the great theme for the Olympic's in Italy. The songs also include a new English/Italian version of Vivere called Dear To Live; with Laura Pausani a popular Italian singer. A wonderful song called La Voce Del Silenzio; a beautiful song writen by Andrea called A TE; A very cool classical song with Lang Lang, on Piano, called IO CI SARO; and another song, very contemporary and beautiful, called BELLISSIME STELLE which may be my favorite song on the CD. This is a great CD for any Bocelli fan; for the fan because it has the 5 new songs (4 new and one alternative version). And is a great set for new fans because it has many of his hits and the new tracks are wonderful as well. This would be a good first CD for someone new to Bocelli.
The Best of Bocelli
All great songs, but I already own them on other albums. Would rather see something from him with new music and new duets.
