Movie Reviews

The First DVD , And Still Bocelli's Best
Craig Connell | Lockport, NY USA | 01/19/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was the first, and probably still the best, of the Andrea Bocelli concerts on DVD. It sort of "put him on the map" here in the U.S. I have bought several other Bocelli DVDs since and none compares to this one.

Not being a fan of "opera," the fact I rated this a "five-stars" the first time I saw it and it remains such, is a tribute to how good a singer this man is, and how beautifully filmed is this concert.

Bocelli has the most pleasing male voice I have ever heard and even though I don't understand Italian, just listening to him is pure pleasure. The concert setting, in a town square in Tuscany, is reminiscent of Yanni's Acropolis concert, with multi-colored lights used on the background buildings. It's very appealing, and the more I watch this the more impressed I am with the camera-work. That also includes a couple of videos interspersed during the concert and a portrait of Andrea's town and of his immediate family.

As a novice to this music genre like me becomes more familiar with these beautiful songs, the better they sound and quickly become favorites. Bocelli has three guests during the concert: one of which has become quite famous in her own right since this appearance: Sarah Brightman. Also joining the famous Italian tenor with a few duets are Nuccia Focile (a little too soprano-ish for me) and Zucchero, who reminded me (with a better voice) of Joe Cocker. One of the videos is also a duet, with Bocelli and Marta Sanchez, a pretty woman with a nice voice. The scenery in that video is really nice, too.

Caruso, Pavaratti and others may be more famous and technically superior but this guy is the easiest on the ears. When you want to relax with beautiful music and great concert, you cannot beat this DVD.
