Bocelli : A Household Christmas
Andrea Bocelli, Matteo Bocelli, Virginia Bocelli, voices
Decca, 2022

Andrea Bocelli’s voice has remained recent for greater than 25 years. For many who don’t understand it but, it’ll proceed to be recent for the subsequent era! Bocelli: A Household Christmas presents the voices of the illustrious singer’s two offspring, Matteo and Virginia Bocelli, reunited with their father for the primary time on document. As you’ll perceive, that is undoubtedly not a Christmas album like others.

The person who has devoted his total profession to classical and pop crossover manages to recreate the right environment for holidays and household reunions by the fireplace. The collection of Christmas songs contains classics from the English repertoire—Joyful Xmas (Conflict Is Over), Have Your self a Merry Little Christmas and I’ll Be Residence for Christmas)—and sacred items corresponding to Away in a Manger, First Noel and Pleasure to the World, in addition to songs in different languages: Feliz Navidad, Buon natale, and Il giorno più speciale.

The preparations and textures with choir are nicely carried out and this system is nicely balanced between solos, duets and trios. Every singer has the prospect to shine. Andrea Bocelli retains the crystalline voice that we’ve come to know. In Over the Rainbow and The Best Present, a brand new music co-written by Stephan Moccio and the singer himself, we discover extra pronounced accents of lyricism from opera, however these stay distinctive.

The voice of his daughter Virginia, solely 10 years outdated, is an actual hit. Equally at dwelling within the pop and sacred register, she brings out very pure colors that mix very nicely together with her father’s. Clearly, she has a promising future! At 24, Matteo’s voice has a grain that’s fairly typical of crooners, but it surely appears extra atypical in comparison with the opposite two.
