One year after the release of their highly successful studio album Grande Amore, Il Volo is back with a spectacular live album that has captivated listeners around the world.
Filmed and recorded for American public broadcasting station PBS live from Florence, Italy's Piazza Santacroce on July 1, Il Volo's Notte Magica pays tribute to one of the greatest musical events of the 20th century, The Three Tenors, when José Carreras, Plácido Domingo, and Luciano Pavarotti sang together for the first time. Performing with mature precision, the world-renown Italian trio was accompanied by the orchestra of Teatro Massimo di Palermo as well as by a very special guest, legendary opera singer Plácido Domingo, who conducted the orchestra on eight pieces and joined on "Non ti scordar di me."
"I am very happy to be with Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca conducting them in this magical night under the stars in such a beautiful city: Florence!" Domingo said. "I really love these guys. They are performing such a great repertoire around the world--some of the music my colleagues and I performed in our own concerts."
Notte Magica is a vessel through which Il Volo reconnects audiences with musical history, combining Italian, Neapolitan, and international classics with hits from musicals and songs from classical opera arias for a rich, unforgettable experience. It is a luxurious encounter with the past through the eyes of three young men who are well on their way to becoming legends themselves.
Il Volo's world tour will begin in the U.S. in March 2017. Visit ilvolomusic.com for their latest news and tour dates.
