All about Il Volo

Near the concertI had some friends that attended the Marostica concert, not ilvolovers (as we know), but people that like good music and also like the art of Il Volo. They shared with me their impressions and it was one of the reasons why my review was so … Live 🙂 Thank you to all friends that like what I wrote and say this to me. This feed back keep me writing, you can bet on it.

One of this friends was not there on Piazza degli Scacchi, but was near enough to hear all the concert, and he told me about the emotion that cross the air. Not only the sound of Il Volo, but the sound of the audience as well. He said that almost you can feel the people stoping to breath together for then a long sigh precedes the thunderous applause. Sometime, when you cannot see, you can feel better.

The opposite is also true: sometime when you see all in front of you, you cannot feel or understand what you are seeing. I am telling this to warn ourselves that our senses are not independent of our feelings, of our concepts and prejudices. Most of the time we feel or see what we want or what we are prepared to feel or see.

And among what we see and what we know we are not seeing (or feeling) the great question is separate what is important from  what is dust in the wind. If it is true to life, it is also true when you have to decide what matters to publish about Il Volo here. ‘All’, said the huge fans that love our ‘dailies’. But to build a site is not as easy as to share short texts and photos on facebook (as we also did on our facebook page) and we have to do choices. Although, what is today on facebook, tomorrow goes to a ‘limbo’ along with other things that facebook determine that are not important (for its business, of course).

As I had said some posts ago, things will change here and we are still thinking about it. Maybe we will not have here exactly ‘all about Il Volo’ all the time, when needed we will chose ‘the better about Il Volo’ and, mainly, ‘what matter about Il Volo’. We are not a short term publication that seeks attention at all costs, we think about the future. Where ten years from now will Il Volo find information about his career, in detail, with correct sources, with editorial care? If facebook (this is probable, remember Orkut, Ning, …) or even the internet does not exist anymore, this site still can be a book.

Then we can put in real dimensions a lot of things. 🙂

Piero Barone – Il Volo interview to Il Mattino

Il Volo concert sold outOn Sep 11, 2014 Il Mattino Padova publishes this interview with Piero Barone, conducted by Matteo Marcon.

“The new icons of bel canto land in Marostica, in the beautiful Piazza Castello. The Italian tour of “Il Volo” ends in Veneto, on Tuesday, with a concert already sold out. Ignazio Boschetto, Piero Barone and Gianluca Ginoble are still very young, are between nineteen and twenty, but they are international stars. Thanks to historical songs as “Un amore così grande”, “O sole mio” e “Il Mondo”, wisely arranged and impeccably played, they have stood out both in the United States and South America. They were the first Italian artists to sign with a major label overseas. Now they are ready to fly in Italy, picking up the baton of such myths as the absolute Pavarotti, on one hand, and Modugno on the other. On the Italian tour they were accompanied by the Maestro Diego Basso of Treviso.”

Involved in the recording of the new album, including a take, and the other, Piero Barone (one of the two tenors. Ginoble is baritone), tells the great adventure of the group.

IM: How is the world from up there?
PB: It’s very small, we understand this travelling. Doing this allows us to learn about new cultures and discover that Italy is estimated anywhere.

IM: What are the roles established on the group?
PB: Nobody has a role, we are three guys with three very different personalities but Il Volo is one only thing. Each of us represents 33% and 1%, which remains, we leave it on the air.

IM: What effect does it to live this dream?
PB: We grew up in a hurry. Not all children 18 years old find themselves having to deal with lawyers and accountants. Now the dream is reality, we are aware of what we are doing and give the best.

IM: How began the Il Volo career?
PB: With a phone call from our current manager, Michele Torpedine, after that with the producer Tony Renis they had noticed us on Ti Lascio Una Canzone on Rai Uno in 2009. Every day we must thank these people. Continue reading

Il Volo concert in Chihuahua – review

Il Volo in Chihuahua 10º FICHSince 6pm thousands of young (and not so young) ladies were waiting at the Plaza Angel for a concert that will take place at 8pm. A raining day and all that people decided to not give up to enjoy three of the most beautiful voices of our time. Voices that together are enchanting the audiences all over the world. Lucky people that live in a country that promote an event like the 10º Festival Internacional Chihuahua where art, music and culture fill the daily life.

And Il Volo didn’t disappoint! Beginning with Nuestro amor ès más que grande and  switching songs from their Italian and international repertoire with versions in Spanish or traditional Mexican and Spanish songs, Il Volo made everybody literally forget the weather.

Il Volo in Chihuahua 10º FICHThere was a big event like the concert in Juarez on August 1, and the performance of Il Volo and the reactions of the audience are amazing. We could see this clearly on the photos that fill the networks, on the smiles of Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio and on the happiness of their fans as well.

The Mexican press were present and covered the event highlighting the career of the group and publishing reviews as soon as possible. It is awesome the number of articles on all kind of press, since sites on facebook to the main Mexican press. Il Volo deserve this attention and amply repays with the quality of their performance and in the amount of attention they give to all.
