After the international success, the stage of Sanremo. Il Volo, the trio of singers composed by Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble, debuted in competition at the Festival with “Grande Amore”, a song that highlights their vocal talents, with the aim to be known and appreciated by the Italian public with their gender, the pop lyric. “After the many experiences abroad we thought why not go back to Italy and sing on the most important musical event of the year? It’s a good opportunity to spend more time with Italians, explained Gianluca.
In Italy the three singers, two tenors and a baritone, enjoy a television popularity, their debut was in the talent show “Ti Lascio Una Canzone” in 2009 and since then they have done a lot of road. They were the first Italian to sign a contract with Geffen, the US major, the only ones invited by Quincy Jones to “We are the world for Haiti” with 80 stars, have singed with Barbra Streisand and sold millions of copies worldwide, winning two Latin Grammy Awards nominations and winning the Latin Billboard.
They have are not snobs, due to the great international popularity, nor fear the “competition”. “We will do all on the right time, we have seen in the past that colleagues as Pavarotti and Bocelli, the most important tenors, have had to succeed abroad before returning” said Piero. “We did concerts all over the world and we always take everything with great humility: there are guys who would do what we do. Our goal is not to win Sanremo, we take everything with fun and passion,” added Ignazio on the meeting with journalists.
The song that present Ariston is “Grande amore” about the love seen by the boys of 20 years. The song is included in the EP “Sanremo Grande Amore” that will be released on February 24, produced by Celso Valli, which collects famous songs of the history of the Festival on new arrangements: there’s “Ancora” by Eduardo De Crescenzo, which Il Volo will sing on the evening of the cover songs. “The guys of 20 years do not speak like the people of 50, they have a different vision of the text. The text is simple for all, to bring this genre to young people,” said Ignazio, speaking about “Grande amore”.
In the album, the trio decided to collaborate with Italian musicians: among others stands the name of Stephen of Battista. The next projects: a tour in Italian prestigious venues, from the Arena di Verona to Pompeii, and pending a international album, to be released by the end of the year.
