Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Michael Stabile
Sublime Northern Italian sights, thundering passion, and poignant memories infuse Tuscan Skies, Andrea Bocelli's personal concert documentary. However one feels about the famed tenor's range in classical music, there is no denying the white-hot emotion he loads into pop material. Fresh on the heels of his bestselling Romanza concert video, Tuscan Skies is a wondrous musical travelogue that further confirms Bocelli's command of the love song. The singer also shows his composing skills here, co-writing three of the songs. The opener, "Melodramma," tells of Tuscany's people and rustic atmosphere, evoking the scent of wine and the aura of the hills and the fields of his adored homeland. Later, "L'Incontro" brings in one of the singer's biggest fans -- U2's Bono -- who movingly reads a Bocelli poem about the bond between a father and his newborn child. Also included is a previously unreleased song, "Tornera la Neve," available only on the DVD or VHS version. As much as Bertolucci's Stealing Beauty or Il Postino, Tuscan Skies conveys a total picture of this breathtakingly beautiful land, richly weaving melody with memory. Songs include:
  • Melodramma
  • Mille Lune, Mille Onde
  • E Ara 'A Settembre Someone Like You
  • Chiara
  • Mascagni
  • Resta Qui
  • Il Mistero Dell 'Amore
  • Se la Gente Usasse Il Cuore
  • Si Volto'
  • L 'Abitudine
  • L 'Incontro
  • E Mi Manchi Tu
  • Il Diavolo e l'Angelo
  • L'Ultimo Re
  • Tornera la Neve

    Tuscan Skies

    Beautiful, makes me want to go back to Italy soon! Very much enjoyed it! Who is the young lady that does the duet with him? Not mentioned on the credits.

    WONDERFUL, INSPIRING, WOW

    I just finished watching Andrea Bocelli: Tuscan Skies I am not a critic of any kind, but I know what I like and I absolutely loved this. Everything is just beautiful, the scenery, the music, and getting a glimpse of this artist. This is the best DVD I have purchased in years and I hope DVD's do not wear out, because this one will be getting a lot of use. I am 63 years old and not too easily impressed.

    Why Tuscan Skies?

    Bocelli's attempt to expres his love for Tuscany gives us a mediocre album in total, with few amazing songs in the tumultuous splendour of his voice.You forgive and want more, forever. Using the word ski doesn't guarantee poetic shock.It doesn't sing(I mean the title).Not even in italian. I can't wait to listen to his future albumes that measure-up to his value.
