Andrea Bocelli’s new album Passione includes duets with Jennifer Lopez and Nelly Furtado and features the Italian tenor, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist at the peak of his romantic powers. When Bocelli was a teenager, he spent six nights a week working as a piano player and singer in the piano bars of his hometown of Tuscany.
“It often happened that a beautiful girl who could sing in tune would come up and ask to sing something with me,” Bocelli recalls. “It was a good time and perhaps it is to that time that I owe my peace of mind and serenity of today.” It is Bocelli’s fondness for his pre-fame years that has partly inspired Passione, a lush selection of the musical moments that marked and accompanied his youth.
