IL Volo with Plácido Domingo release Notte Magica – A Tribute To The Three Tenors on September 30.
Recorded live during their performance at Florence’s Piazza Sante Croce, earlier this summer. Maestro Plácido Domingo appears on the album, having performed a number of songs with the group throughout the one off concert.
Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble performed a programme that went from popular Neapolitan, Italian and international music, to blending in complete harmony with songs from famous musicals and renowned classical opera arias.
As well as conducting the great Teatro Massimo orchestra of Palermo in eight pieces during the evening, Maestro Domingo also sang “Non Ti Scordar Di Me” with IL Volo.
“I am very happy to be with Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca conducting them on this magical night under the stars in such a beautiful city, Florence! I really love these guys. They are performing such great repertoire around the world – the same music I’m singing at my own concerts.” says Plácido Domingo.
“A tribute to such artists and to such an event could be considered presumptuous, but in fact it is not, as we have not the slightest thought of comparing ourselves to our idols who will be forever our artistic inspirations,” say IL Volo.
It was 26 years ago that José Carreras, Plácido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti sang together in Rome, in the concert UNA NOTTE MAGICA, filling one of the most enchanting temples of opera, the Teatro delle Terme di Caracalla. The result was the birth of the most internationally recognised names in the history of music, THE THREE TENORS.
‘Notte Magica – A Tribute To The Three Tenors’, captured for special edition CD, 2CD/DVD and digital only versions, will be released worldwide on September 30th, in the UK on Right Track Records and distributed by Universal Music.
IL Volo start their next world tour in March 2017, North America.
