Last week, IL VOLO took part in a television program in honor of Lucio Dalla, great Italian singer and author of the beautiful “CARUSO”.
The talented Valeria Bosch, has written a short and nice post about this event, and of course, here it is re-proposed for you.
(In this comment three great Italian singers who died prematurely, Lucio Dalla, Lucio Battisti and Fabrizio De Andrè, are cited.)
Let’s say that for Il Volo it was a test of maturity: in fact to examine them, there was Lucio (Dalla), the great Lucio. He told them right away, as soon as he saw them: “Guys, I’ll start, so you understand immediately what level you should take.” The boys, to feel up to it, found nothing better than to place there, immediately, a high note of Ignazio, that high note which, years ago, in the Verona Arena, had stunned him, making him exclaim: “Wow, what a voice!!!”
Then, “Gianlucathevoice”, velvet timbre and growing passion, and Piero, who, entering the musical context, with his power makes even the little clouds tremble up there, made Lucio understand that he could not worry: here are the ones to pass the baton to, three boys as seen from the outside, but three giants as to voice, to intonation, to passion, as soon as you hear them sing!
Lucio (Dalla) went to say it immediately there, in the heavenly pastures, to the other magnificent Lucio (Battisti) and to the great Fabrizio (De Andrè). They, the trio that reinvented Italian music in the second half of twentieth century, then quickly put themselves back at their paradisiacal pastimes.
They understood that, in the midst of rap, trap, indie and various amenities, there is someone who still saves Italian music. For the moment they can breathe a sigh of relief.
