~ Ave Maria Mater Misericordiae ~ by Daniela

The only new theme of the album Notte Magica – Tribute to the three tenors is Ave Maria, Mater Misericordiae, composed by Giorgio F. Pintus and Romano Musumarra. This song, although it was included in the album, was not interpreted by Il Volo in the concert held on July 1, 2016 in the Piazza Santa Croce in Florence, during which the Notte Magica album was recorded live, because it had to be performed during the World Youth Day, in front of Pope Francis.

Unfortunately, Il Volo could not keep up with the Krakow appointment due to technical problems, and the live performance of the song had to be postponed until March 2017.   Il Volo sang live for the first time Ave Maria Mater Misericordiae, on March 2, 2017 in Easton (USA), although its official presentation was at the concert of Radio City Music Hall, in New York, on March 4, 2017.

Since the first performance, the song has become a favorite of the Magic Night tour viewers. It is a small jewel, in the purest style of Il Volo, which perfectly adapts to the vocal characteristics of the group. The song, dedicated to the Virgin Mary, begins softly in a low tone with the voice of Gianluca Ginoble, followed by Ignazio Boschetto and increases in intensity in the refrain by Piero Barone. But the climax comes at the end of the song, when Ignazio Boschetto attacks the highest notes and the three voices finally come together in a great harmony. The text is a perfect combination of tradition and modernity and manages to be poetic without being antiquated.

 

Below is a video of the execution of the Ave Maria, Mater Misericordiae on the day of its presentation in New York on March 4, 2017.

~ The Magic Night Tour Is Over ~ by Melina

 The last concert of the Magic Night tour has ended.   Melina summarizes all the emotions that have accompanied us in this beautiful year.

Our loves have inflamed and bewitched even the most composed and peaceful Japanese, who are known for their reserved nature and not  used to manifest too much impetus and ardor. And with these images that warm the heart, let me take a little consideration:

The Kawasaki concert was the last of this endless world tour of “Magic Night”.  We’ll miss them!!

We will remember the applause, standing ovations, overwhelming euphoria, and the love of the public.  We will remember the involvement of all the senses. We will remember the smiles and the happiness of our boys, their still wonder of the success.  We will remember their jokes and the laughter that they have snatched from viewers.  We will remember the emotion and the enchantment they have aroused in people… their beautiful voices  and the passion of their performances.

 

image

There will be other tours and everything will start again, and there will still be shows in every corner of the world, but this closes a chapter that made us thrill, rejoice, become proud.   

image

This Tour was more of a challenge than others, because it was a difficult and not very commercial genre to which not everyone was accustomed.   A challenge won in all respects and on all fronts, which gave irrepressible triumphs, demonstrating, if still we needed it, that “the trio of wonders” are capable of performing and captivating whatever they sing. It is right that after so much effort there is for the boys a little rest and time to reflect and prepare new projects, which will certainly surprise and give great sensations. We will keep these memories in the heart, and we will wait anxiously and with trepidation for the next artistic achievements that will make us, as always, jump with enthusiasm.

Our guys in Japan – Last Notte Magica! Nov 29 & Dec 1, 2017

nottemagica header

This is it, the LAST two concerts of the official Notte Magica tour!  They did it.  They made it!  What a year it has been.  A little bittersweet now….  yes, we were tiring just a little tad, for they were the same songs, just a different city.  But as the tour progressed to the different countries and continents, we saw them loosen up a bit and almost get back to their old crazy selves!  It was so nice to see – we missed that about them  Yes, they are growing up, not children anymore, but of course, we like to see them having a good time… 🙂

Here are some videos I found on You Tube, etc.  Thanks to all owners of videos/pictures.  🙂

 

And, we cannot forget the smiling and happy faces of the lucky folks at the meet & greets!

https://www.omgvip.com/il-volo-november-29-2017/      Wow, only 10!

https://www.omgvip.com/il-volo-december-1-2017/  Ok, a few more here, but not that many…. wonder if they had more time with them in Japan?


Their next engagement will be December 13 in Mexico, for the Ferrero Rocher concert.  I’m sure they’ be singing some songs still from Notte Magica.

Right now, they are all back in Italy, somewhere…. I imagine enjoying a short break before heading back to Mexico, then it’s off to Australia, and then home, home at last, where they will be working on their next surprises for us!  Will they tour next year?  Only the Il Volo Shadow knows….. 🙂    Ah, wouldn’t we all want to be that shadow?

Til next time….

~FOR THE NEWER CREW MEMBERS AND ALSO FOR THE NOT SO NEW CREW!~ by Penina

 

There seem to be a lot of newer crew members who have missed some great concerts and videos. The one, Amore e amare l’amore, with Toto Cutugno, is one of them.   They  also sang Il Mondo and O Sole Mio at that concert.  Whoever filmed the Il Mondo video was fixated on Ignazio, keeping the camera on him for the whole song.  It’s fun to watch as he sings along under his breath when the others are singing.  And they have some antics during O Sole Mio.  Piero is wearing his red glasses, Gian is elegant in a white jacket, and Ignazio is wearing the same suit he wore for the Disney outing.  The old faithful among us can tell what year it is by their outfits, hairstyles and the progression of Ignazio’s beard. 

Let us go back to 2014 in Moscow.

 

~~~ L’amore e’ amare l’amore ~~~

 

~~~ Il Mondo ~~~

 

~~~ O Sole Mio ~~~

 

 

Thank you, Penina, for taking us back in time to enjoy this performance again!

~ Il Volo – C’e Posta Per Te ~ Medley Notte Magica

Many thanks to Victoria, one of our Flight Crew, who  sent in this beautiful video clip that her 90 year old Il Volo fan friend sent to her!  Victoria was wondering who the woman with the dark hair was and what was the story behind this video?  So, I turned to our faithful and ever ready Italian Correspondent Extraordinare,  Daniela, who gave us the tender story.

 

The story is simple.  There are six children, 5 females and 1 male.  The woman with the dark hair is their mother, who has made many sacrifices for them.   Four years ago they lost their dad who was a sailor.  They were not wealthy, but led a simple life,  but always cheerful and their dad was always there for them.  These children had promised dad to take care of  their mother, but for 4 years she is always sad.   

So the children, to reward her, take her to this program to show her all their love.  To surprise her, they called IL VOLO,  knowing how much she admired them.   Piero, Ignazio, and Gianluca, gave her nice words of support, a bracelet, and sang for her.  The whole family was invited to the concert in Rome.

 The presenter is Maria De Filippi who in Channel 5 is really an important person.  In this video you will notice that she looks admirably with the boys as they sing.

Notte Magica – Kiev, Ukraine! October 23, 2017

nottemagica header

Yes, folks, the tour is winding down with Kiev, and just Japan after this one.  Soon the memories of these concerts will be like autumn leaves, blowing in the wind.  As the remnants of their voices rustle in our head like falling leaves, and we rake up the memories, let’s treasure these last two cities….

Let’s start with the meet/greet!  Looks like there was a small crowd for this one and the lady in red got 3 pictures!
