Il Volo: from “tenorini” of a talent show to international stars

Il Volo on Abbey Road Studios, LondonOriginal article: Il Volo: da “tenorini” di talent show a star internazionali – on Il Velino

Translation: In London, they recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios of The Beatles and in the United States they make a full house at every stage of the tour, also performing in the Radio City Music Hall. They are Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble.

On June 6, 1962, the record producer George Martin brought in Abbey Road Studios four boys from Liverpool. They were the future “The Beatles”, who would recorded there, from 1962 to 1969, about 90% percent of all their LP and singles, and they named their last recording in 1969 with the name of the street where the studios were located (the studios only changed the name a year later). The legendary photo of Iain McMillan for the cover, which shows the four on the pedestrian crossing outside the studios, made the street a place of pilgrimage. To this legendary musical stage in the heart of London have been brought the tenors Piero Barone (Naro, June 24, 1993), and Ignazio Boschetto (Marsala, October 4, 1994) and the baritone Gianluca Ginoble (Roseto degli Abruzzi, February 11, 1995), known in Italy as “the tenorini” because they were launched at a very early age on the transmission “Ti Lascio Una Canzone” hosted by Antonella Clerici – aunt Antonella for them – but who are really called Il Volo. A “nomen omen” because they took flight. Continue reading

:: September 24, 2014 – Il Volo – on Kommersant – “The charming Italian trio called Il Volo, consisting of Piero Barone and Ignazio Boschetto (tenors) and Gianluca Ginoble (baritone), will appear one day to the audience in Barvikha, Moscow, to present not only the new program, but the fall-winter collection of Brioni. The age of the trio is more close to ballet than opera: the eldest, Pietro Barone, recently turned 21, Gianluca 19, and Ignazio Boschetto the very day of the concert will celebrate his 20th anniversary. But for four years working together, they have already managed to be famous worldwide in a democratic genre of “pop opera”, releasing eight albums and wining dozens of awards. The musical program for the evening artists do not reveal, but it can be assumed that the evening will not be without a trio of Italian specialties for folk songs, classical arias and Latin American music, for which Il Volo was awarded this year with the Latin Billboard Music Award. – Barvikha Luxury Village, Oct 4h, 7pm”

links and news:: Not exactly about Il Volo, the news about Ti Lascio Una Canzone are not good: the talent show was suspended by RAI 1. The new edition will not occur and the reasons are not given clearly yet. The AGE – Associazione Italiana Genitori received with gladness this news, commenting that for many years several parents associations had complain about the program that, in their opinion, took the kids to take manners and attitudes of adults. On the other side, there were those who think that the reasons are only commercial behind the suspension. Read more on: Rai, sospeso programma di Antonella Clerici – on Diretta News (in Italian) – and on Ti Lascio una Canzone sospeso, l’Associazione Genitori soddisfatta (ma non sa che tornerà…) – on TV Blog (in Italian). It is not easy to judge, if we consider the birth of Il Volo and what this show meant on it. But we also have to agree that, when we deal with children, all the care is not enough.

Il Volo on TG Campania about the concert in Napoli

On Sep 13, 2014, short report on TG Campania night edition about the Il Volo concert in Napoli that took place on Sep 12.

video by AAIV

Summary and not literal: The presenter said that the 3 tenors of Il Volo, launched through Ti lascio Una Canzone and very famous abroad, performed in Napoli. Then, Antonella Maffei said that was a great expectation at Arena Flegrea after the almost 4000 tickets sold to the concert on the Mostra D’Oltremare. She also said that the ‘tenorini’ took flight on a magical night with the special guest Daniele Falasca.

Comment: Finally, after years of hard work, the Italian media is paying attention to the immense talent of Il Volo, even though not in the same way we are used to. For example, despite the fact that the guys have asked countless times not be referred to as “I tre tenorini”, the shadow of that nickname is still haunting them, not to mention that in Italy “from TLUC” is still their last name. Or disclosing information as the presence of Daniele Falasca at the concert, which in this case was not confirmed. There is still a long path to walk but Il Volo is taking it with the confidence that their talent ensures.
