Overview

Andrea Bocelli's hugely popular album, Romanza, showed him at his best -- passionately singing songs that had the kind of pop-vocal arrangements that made the most of his emotive, if not entirely rich, voice. Immensely popular around the world more because of the romantic aura that surrounds him than his vocal ability, Bocelli manages to seduce the listener into thinking that he or she is listening to a great opera singer, even if his performances taken by themselves prove otherwise. That is why Viaggio Italiano is not a great album, and also why it doesn't matter. Bocelli begins the album with such iconic opera arias that most of the people who buy his records will focus on the beauty of the songs themselves, rather than his execution of them. By the time he gets to the second half of the album, where he sings the Italian folk songs that are a little more in his league, the listener has already been hooked. Throughout the album, the Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra provides subdued accompaniment that draws little attention to itself, allowing Bocelli, and the legend that surrounds him, to shine.

Editorial Reviews

Gramophone
Bocelli sings the five arias included here in that pleasingly plangent tone shown in his previous, admired recital [Aria: The Opera Album]... The other pieces are well within his range, but he is at his persuasive best, line clean, dynamics varied, in Federico’s lament and Nemorino’s plaint.

I love Andrea Bocelli, but his first classical album doesn¿t seem to pack a lot of punch. There are some charming standards, like ¿Nessun Dorma¿ and ¿Adeste Fideles,¿ but the whole album is unengaging.

Andrea Bocelli does it again in this wonderful ''Viaggo''. Always emotional to listen to. Rheoterically, how can anyone, having heard him sing, not fall helplessly in love with him? This album reaffirms this feeling.

Andrea has talent that leaves me with stars in my eyes and my head full of dreams that waltz to the melodies I hear him sing. He is so relaxing, so mesmerising, and so ABsolutely fabulous that I can't say enough good things about him. This CD is called ''Italian Voyage'' and is in honour of Italians both in Italy and America. There are Italian opera standards as well as many classic Neopolitan songs. Also at the end is a spoken message from Andrea and Adeste Fideles. Although this is not my favourite Andrea CD, it is excellent. I would recommend that you listen to ''Sogno'' or ''Sacred Arias'' first, because they are the best. Once you fall in love with him, you will love anything he sings.
