Il Volo links & news for Jan 26, 2015

Links and NewsWe are living times of many links and news! Sanremo is literally blooming. Sometimes not in a nice way. I am surprised with the low level of the almost all articles about Sanremo: one repeat another (sometimes copying wrong!); they use a lot of metaphors instead solid arguments; in general, some articles seem to be written by amateurs and not professional music critics. Reading the reviews about the first presentation of the 20 “big” songs to Sanremo we continue without a way to build an opinion. Well, in times where people use only images instead words (even if sometimes an image speaks better then words) is not surprise that metaphors (that also have their space) are used instead arguments.

A song is not a puzzle of text and music. A song is the magic created by text, music, arrangements, interpretation. Sanremo songs will exist only on the Ariston stage through the emotion of the audience there and all over RAI arrives.

Let’s go, it is Monday as Piero said :)

Il Volo link and news for Jan 24, 2015

Sanremo 2015 links & newsA day to read the reviews about the presentation of the 20 unreleased songs for Sanremo 2015 and one more time to be a little … relief to see that, although they talk a lot of “more of the same” and “nothing really new” the press also wrote “more of the same” and “nothing new”or more than clichés. A few have the courage to say what they really thought – good or bad -, and you have to deal with people trying to be cool, trying to look inserted into the musical context, but with a lack of originality and overwhelming courage. Do not like it? Say it without subterfuge and with solid arguments. Metaphors must be used with some knowledge of the facts. But it is understandable…, many people have a high resistance to recognize their mistakes later so it is easy to remain behind words of unclear meaning.

Let’s go the news:

16:00 – Gianluca Ginoble mentioned in an article about the Festival dell’Adriatico 2015. they said that through time the festival received many contestants that after became famous, as Gianluca Ginoble, the winner of 2008 on the ‘Young Category’, now protagonist of the fantastic trio Il Volo. – Festival dell’Adriatico 2015, apertura ufficiale iscrizioni – on Picenotime (Jan 24, 2015)

14:00 Radio Festival is a web radio enterely dedicated to the Sanremo Festival. The radio can be listened online on and on smartphones and tablets, thanks to the APP Mobile Radio 105. The radio offers every day, 24 hours 24, born on the stage of the classic festival in the City of Flowers, with the performance of the winners and losers from 1951 to today, the curiosities, the background, and, Live from Sanremo House – the official “hospitality” area of the show most followed by Italians – interviews with Beppe Cuva with all the protagonists of the 2015 edition, the new presenter and artistic director Carlo Conti, who has unveiled on Radio Festival the secrets of the Festival number 65 and all Big and New proposals in the competition.

8:30 – Questo è un Festival da incubo
Canzoni mediocri e uniformi
– by Giuseppe Attardi on La Sicilia – Review about the 20 unreleased songs for Sanremo 2015. “A Sanremo nightmare is to be held on February 10 to 14 at the Teatro Ariston. The uniformity prevails. A molasses in the music and lyrics. The ballad melodic reigns in its classic structure: delicate intro, emphatic opening to start the voice and exploit the orchestra. And love, in all its facets…” Il Volo: “And then “Il Volo”, whose tenor voices will peel the hands of the Sanremo audience. Throats unfolded, the three singers are presented with a great love song with a development to Europe (those of The Final Countdown): on the edge of kitsch, between musical and pop romance.”

7:00 – SANREMO 2015, MELODIA E AMORE PROTAGONISTI SUL PALCO DELL’ARISTON – on RAI News – Article about the preview of the 20 unreleased songs for Sanremo 2015, talking about the predominance of the “Love”as theme of the songs typical of festival. Carlo Conti announced the comedians Alessandro Siani, Angelo Pintus and Luca & Paolo as guests on Sanremo 2015. (Jan 23, 2015)

Il VoloAccording to Cristian Scarpone on All Music Italia the new album of Il VoloSanremo Grande Amore – will be released on February 24, 2015 just after the 65º Festival della Canzone ItalianaSanremo 2015. The most expected news was published today, only 29 minutes ago and needs to be confirmed by Il Volo.

On the article:

“Grande Amore tells about the love experienced by the twentysomethings. It’s a song that combines pop and classical, but it is not lyrical, it reflects our style and that in Italy you hear very few” – Il Volo said.

Still according to the article the song Grande Amore was proposed by Orietta Berti on a previous edition of Sanremo and refused.  Although not confirmed, the Album should contain, in addition to Grande Amore, covers songs that have made history on the Sanremo Festival.

The article ends saying that now Il Volo are ready to conquer the victory in Sanremo, that would launch them permanently and that the odds of the bookmakers seem to confirm that.
