Vivere: Andrea Bocelli Live in Tuscany
Introduction

andrea bocelliItalian tenor Andrea Bocelli grew up in Lajatico, a rural village in Tuscany, where his family still farms nearby. On the slopes of this ancient hill town, a special theater was constructed for a one-night-only concert of his greatest popular hits along with new songs performed to honor the occasion. Some famous musical friends dropped by and the magical result is VIVERE: ANDREA BOCELLI LIVE IN TUSCANY. Joining Bocelli for the new songs are “grandissimo sassofonista” Kenny G., trumpeter Chris Botti, piano virtuoso Lang Lang, Italian pop star Eliza, and legendary musician, songwriter, and producer David Foster. Helping with the hits are favorite divas Sarah Brightman, Heather Headley, and Laura Pausini.

Andrea Bocelli’s latest CD, THE BEST OF ANDREA BOCELLI: VIVERE, marks the first time in his career that the singer has released a greatest hits compilation. The recording, which debuted in October 2007, includes “Time to Say Goodbye” (”Con te partirò”), his breakthrough hit with Sarah Brightman from the four-time platinum-selling CD ROMANZA; “The Prayer,” a duet with Celine Dion from his two-time platinum-selling CD SOGNO; “Melodramma” from CIELI DI TOSCANA; the Olympics theme, “Because We Believe,” from his most recent platinum recording, AMORE; plus new tracks “Bellissime Stelle” and “Io Ci Sarò,” with special guest, pianist Lang Lang. Selections from this best of CD are among the highlights of the tenor’s concert from his Tuscan hometown.

Many local PBS stations may be offering the concert DVD and THE BEST OF ANDREA BOCELLI: VIVERE CD as Pledge gifts. To order these items, pledge now.

    PBS showed a documentary about Andrea Bocelli that I would like to view once again. I can not remember the name of the show but it was something like “A man meant to perform”. It had interviews and footage of where he grew up etc. Can you provide info on this show?

  • Antonio Onorato

    I saw a special about 5 years ago in which Andrea was in his home with his family at dinner celebrating his birthday. PBS was selling it on tv, but ran out. How can I get a copy?

    Brīnišķīgo DVD ANDREA BOCELLI “Vivera” man meita uzdāvināja 08.03.09.. Klausos katru vakaru un jūtu kā plūst dvēseles skaņas. Bočelli dueti ar augstas klases māksliniekiem ir brīnišķīgi, tikai man žēl, ka komentāros nav minēts Lučiāno Pavarotti. DVD “Pavarotti ar draugiem” viņu abu izpildījumā man grūti bija atšķirt katra balss piederību.
    Diemžēl, ar nožēlu jāsaka, ka Mežaparka koncertu nevarēšu apmeklēt.

  • Sean

    I have been trying for years to find information about a Bocelli performance I (think I) saw on PBS… This was back YEARS ago just as Andrea was gaining popularity & notoriety in the US… The setting for the performance was a very simple cafe with a small audience – most at tables sipping wine or finishing their dinners/desserts. I remember him singing “Time to Say Goodbye”, but it might have been the “Con te Partrio” version at that point… Anyway, I’ve looked and looked – I’d love to get that performance on DVD if it exists… Can anyone out there in cyber-space assist me in my search? Much gratitude if you can… Grazie!
