MUSIC AND ITS SUPERPOWERS by Daniela

I saw this article, and the title immediately attracted me and I read it.

I found it very interesting, and in some respects, this article confirms what we knew.

I will summarize the content because the article is very long and I will post photos of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca to make it less boring. 🙂

Music Superpowers 01

Music is always with us. Since mum hummed the lullaby, there is no sad or happy moment of life that passes in silence.

There is music for every moment of life, a party is not a party without background music and adolescence would not be the same without an accompanying soundtrack, to the point that just hearing a song of that time causes us to relive the emotions.

Two neuroscientists have discovered that for our brains MUSIC IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT THAN LANGUAGE: words came later.

Music Superpowers 02

Listening to a melody is not just pleasant. According to science, the notes enhance memory and make us more creative, but also healthier. It can lower blood pressure and heart rate, and reduce the rate of cholesterol in the blood.

Music is a kind of brain restorative.

Even in the office we collaborate more if there is music in the background.

A live concert could solve even the problems of social integration in complicated contexts, given that Arabs and Americans after listening to music together show greater understanding of each other.

Music Superpowers 03

Sharing music improves relationships. If you strive to find hits that appeals to the whole family communication will improve.

And it can become a therapy: the notes enhance the effects of medicines to lower the pressure with a reduction in heart rate and cholesterol in the blood also adds to the benefits.

Listening to music before, during and after an operation removes the anxiety that precedes surgery and reduces postoperative pain.

Analgesic and anti-anxiety effects have also been observed in cancer patients, who are less tired thanks to music during chemo and radiotherapy; while in those who have suffered a stroke, music accelerates recovery and improves mood and quality of life.

It could even be used as an anti-rejection drug.

Music Superpowers 04

Every musical genre has a different effect on the brain.

HEAVY METAL, this music is good for the angry, because it is a way to channel negative emotions.

JAZZ, is perfect for synchronizing brain and heart and relaxation.

RAP and HIP-HOP, is useful for those who are depressed.

POP, ideal for improving physical performance and feeling less tired.

CLASSIC, is the most effective in giving positive effects to the whole organism.

Music Superpowers 05

Here is the original article of which I made a summary.

What to say, I think we are more than happy to read that if we listen to the beautiful songs of our boys several times a day, they make a balsamic and also a healing effect on our body and mind.

Therefore we must not feel guilty if during our days we want to take a little of this sweet restorative medicine.

I would also say that the combination of POP-CLASSIC is perfect for us.

So, what are you waiting for ….. just put a CD of IL VOLO and enjoy your life, and if you want to sharpen your sight, a nice video of Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero is good for your eyes and is good for your heart !!

Golden Boys by Daniela

We are in July and the summer concerts are approaching.

The guys are releasing videos and interviews for the various concerts and I have seen and read what they said about the concerts of Taormina and Marostica and I found them very interesting so I will translate them for you.

This video is dedicated to the Taormina concert.

I translate:

P = Saturday, July 28 we are waiting for you in the splendid setting of the Ancient Theater of Taormina, for a special evening to which we hold a lot, that is fundraising to support the AIRC (Italian Cancer Research Association) Sicilia committee, for research on pediatric tumors.

I = We all want to no longer have to talk about cancer, especially when we talk about the little ones.

This is why we need to support researchers who are looking for the most effective treatments to treat 100% of children.

G = All together we can help AIRC reach this milestone as soon as possible.

We are waiting for you in Taormina on Saturday 28th July, tickets are already available on Ticketone.

We give AIRC researchers an overpopulated Ancient Theater and we all say together:

P.I.G. = Against cancer, I am here!

Golden 01

This article, speaks of an interview made to the boys on the concert of Marostica, published by IL GIORNALE DI VICENZA.

Il Volo a Marostica in Piazza Scacchi

Il Giornale Article – click here

(I translate the most important points.)

On the wave of success that accompanies them for years without interruption, “Il Volo in concerto” will be one of the key events of the “Marostica Summer Festival” in Piazza degli Scacchi in Marostica on the evening of July 19th. The appointment with the three young ambassadors of Italian music is at 21.30 for an evening nominated to remain well impressed in the memory of the public.

Your success is international, but you will also be touring a small town like Marostica.

What is the value of small centers for you? “We were born and lived in small towns where we can truly appreciate the right human dimension, where everyone knows each other and, like in a big family, there can be friendship, solidarity and all those values ​​that have allowed us to face the world together. without fear. So it’s essential for us to return to the atmosphere of the city”.

Golden 02

One of your historical performances was the “Tribute ai Tre tenori”, Pavarotti, Carreas and Domingo. Are you going to be their heirs? “It would never be possible to compare ourselves with the three, unique and true tenors who transformed the lyric into a language for the general public. Ours was a simple tribute. A reminder of our historical moment with our voices.”

Your success is indisputable. Why are the Italian song and voices so loved? “Perhaps because the history of Italian music is fascinating in itself. Or because the music speaks Italian and among the great voices, the most famous are born in Italy.”

And to those who criticize your “lyric-pop” what do you answer? “That everyone has the right to love the music that is most congenial to them. Clearly, not everyone can appreciate such a particular genre. We ourselves when out of the scene listen, love and sing all different music. We only have twenty years. Criticizing is a right. But denigrate not so much. If, then, there are those who do it, we can not but shrug. In Marostica it will be a unique, magical concert.”

In ten years, where do you see yourself? “For the moment we have already arrived, at ten years of career. We hope to go the same way and always have this great audience because everything happens thanks to the people who love you and support you.”

Golden 03 copy

What to say, the video message is admirable, these guys really have a heart of gold.

And the interview in the newspaper? They said that Marostica will be a special concert, I cannot wait!

EVERYTHING HAPPENED FOR A TRULY MAGICAL NIGHT !!!! by Daniela

July 1, 2016 ……… I can not believe it’s already been two years since that fantastic night, where in the warm sunset of Florence, you could feel in the air the magic that these three young boys were giving, at the public present.

It was wonderful and I was there.

It was my second concert and I was very excited, it was also the first time I used my daughter’s camera, I made videos that re-post to you, sorry for the various tremors and my voice in the background.

The magic was, that no one knew what to expect, we all know that the boys have incredible voices, but when they started with the Nessun Dorma, I think all those present held their breath to the end.

“O my God, it’s very difficult”, I thought, and even the boys were very emotional. There was a palpable tension in the air.

At the final note, we could not believe our ears, we all got up in a very long applause and a few teardrops wet our eyes. They were very good, we were all very proud of them, and they were tighten their hands, hugging each other, moved to be successful.

The various songs went by fast and the evening was beautiful. The muggy heat of the afternoon had given way to a nice evening temperature and Piazza Santa Croce was truly magnificent and the public really very much involved.

Between one song and another there were presentations made by the boys themselves, repeated twice, one in Italian and one in English and this was funny because Piero said: “Rewind everything and repeat because the grandmother in the front row has not heard well.”

There were also strange moments, because it was full summer and it was hot and yet, because the CD would come out at Christmas, they also sang a Christmas song, which was not added on the CD.

And Gianluca occasionally said, “Congratulations, Merry Christmas!”

The boys were really elegant, and the stage was huge, with a large chandelier that came down from the roof and emanated lights of many colors.

People reacted with enthusiastic applauses for their great affection, but also because they recognized the skill of the boys of IL VOLO.

But why in the title of today I wrote “Everything happened for a truly magical night”? Because of the videos I had taken that night…. once I returned home, I wanted to share them with someone.

It was about a year that I was following the IL VOLO FLIGHT CREW website, but I had NEVER commented, I read the various comments that I liked so much.

In fact, at that moment, I took courage and made a comment, attaching one of the videos.

Immediately Marie contacted me and told me to write my impressions on the concert and to attach all my videos that today, I’m re-posting.

I received so many very beautiful and enthusiastic comments of the videos, even if they were shaky and with background voices.

I immediately felt accepted by the group, indeed part of the group.

After three months I was able to meet Marie and Jane personally, what a wonderful meeting.

A few days before going to Florence I read that even Jana would be there to see NOTTE MAGICA, but I still did not make direct contact with Jana so we could meet and get to know each other personally. There will certainly be a next time.

Since then, every day I check the page of our beautiful website several times, and I always feel very close to all of you, even if you are on the other side of the world.

By now I have learned to know most of you. I have so many fond friends, I’m lucky.

The architects of all this are three boys of gold, our dear Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio.

Their wonderful voices console us and their family affairs, into which to our great joy, they allow us to peek, make us proud and also very united, as if we were all part of a large family.

This beautiful magic was also repeated in Verona, where I got to know other members of our crew, such as Mary and Mark Minton, Sue and Graham Hemshall, Jeannette Giglio, Susan Tafanelli, to whom I send a big hug.

Within a few days I will go to the concert of Marostica, and I am sure, it will be a beautiful concert.

I will try to get as close as possible to our boys, to whom I will certainly bring the affection of the whole crew.

I hope to be able to make good videos that I will certainly send you with a detail of the whole concert.

This is the whole story, for now, of how I started writing for Flight Crew, all because of a Magic Night.

Here is the photo of our arrival in the beautiful Florence to attend the concert, my husband and I.

Did you see that beautiful shirt I was wearing ??? I took the first shirt on the fly !!

Daniela and Husband 2015

I send a hug to the whole crew, and I hope I have not bored you too much.

IL VOLO TO PREMIO AGNES by Daniela

On June 23rd, the guys took part in the PREMIO BIAGIO AGNES event which took place in the beautiful BORGO MARINA GRANDE, a seaside village in Sorrento.

This award celebrates 10 years of activity and is given to journalists who uphold the dignity and function of journalism.

IL VOLO PBA 01

The award ceremony was attended by several guests with performances, and among these, IL VOLO.

Here are the guys during the rehearsals, Gianluca is missing because he could not get to the tests in time, because of the traffic.

How wonderful, I cannot think of a better song than CARUSO to be performed in the Neapolitan Gulf.

Some photos from those lucky enough to meet the guys.

There are no official videos because the show will be broadcast on Wednesday, June 27th on RAI 1, so there are only videos made by the public.

For now let’s be content with these.

Sorrento, dinner at Marina Grande for IL VOLO: fans in delirium

They had already been in Marina Grande at the beginning of their career, when they had not yet become one of the most popular Italian music groups in their homeland and in the world. So, yesterday evening, the three members of “Il Volo” took advantage of the final ceremony of the Agnes Prize to visit again the seaside village of Sorrento and the restaurant “Da Emilia”, an authentic temple of gastronomy on the Amalfi Coast. And it was enough for the fans, including the staff of the club, to recognize them and go into delirium.

IL VOLO PBA 13

Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble were guests of the final evening of the Prize which, recorded last night in Marina Grande, will be broadcast on RAI Uno on the second evening of Wednesday. Together with them other stars of Italian music such as Ermal Meta and Dodi Battaglia, without forgetting the team of dance masters of the TV show “Dancing with the Stars”. The recording of the TV program has offered the trio, winner of the Sanremo Festival and third place at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2015, the chance to return to one of the symbolic places of Sorrento and the Coast: Marina Grande, also famous for hosting the filming of a cult film like “Pane, amore e …” by Dino Risi.

IL VOLO PBA 14

And just as Vittorio De Sica and Sophia Loren used to play in the film dating back to 1955, Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca enjoyed a moment of relaxation in the trattoria “Da Emilia”. For them dinner based fried anchovies and marinades, grilled fish and tomatoes “crowned” in the end, by a regal lemon delight. As soon as they entered the club, where they had already been in the past with their respective families and then on the occasion of the Caruso Prize, the two tenors and the baritone aroused the enthusiasm of the fans seated at the table as well as the local staff. Including Irene Cacace, the queen of local cuisine and historical memory of the village of Marina Grande, with which they were immediately photographed.

IL VOLO PBA 15

And then, it comes midnight and need to celebrate Piero.

BEST WISHES PIERO !!!!

IL VOLO PBA 16IL VOLO PBA 17

What to say, must have been a fantastic evening for those who could be present.

The guys were impeccable, elegant, and as always very good, and the Neapolitan public reacted enthusiastically.

Too bad not to be there, what do you say?

IL VOLO / RADIOITALIA by Daniela

And here we are also at the concert of RADIO ITALIA, the great concert was held in Milan in Piazza del Duomo.

RI Milano Piazza del DuomoRI Milano Duomo

The boys arrived in the afternoon for rehearsals.

And here’s the short video of the rehearsals, they will sing L’AMORE SI MUOVE and GRANDE AMORE !!

 

Mamma mia, how beautiful they are !!!

I would have liked to have been there, but I think I saw them much better from my television than in that screaming crowd !!

But it’s a show !!

So the boys were interviewed.

Usual questions, nothing new.

RI Milano 11

And finally here we are in the evening.

The Piazza is very full, the wait is spasmodic.

Seventeen singers have already performed, now it’s their turn, the fantastic PIERO, IGNAZIO and GIANLUCA, in two words IL VOLO.

 

RI Milano 12RI Milano 13RI Milano 14RI Milano 15RI Milano 16RI Milano 17RI Milano 18RI Milano 19

Immediately after the performance the boys were interviewed by Gordon backstage.

After the pleasantries, Gordon says that it is the first time that IL VOLO has taken part in a Radio Italia concert (in reality, although it is only an Italian radio, it never transmits the songs of IL VOLO and NEVER invited them to their concerts, Daniela).

The boys confirm that they are happy to be there and they say the audience was singing well.

Gordon warns them that in the afternoon, during the rehearsals, there was a live on Facebook, IL VOLO had the peak of views on Facebook.

The boys are very happy and hope to have had positive comments, and Gordon says they have ONLY had positive comments.

After an exchange of jokes and laughter, Gordon asks what they feel, to bring Italy to a high level, because they are our flag-holders.

Ignazio says that it is not easy, because sometimes there are many prejudices, he says that they do not make a strictly classical genre, but this is what reflects them, that represents them and that is really appreciated by the public all over the world.

Piero says that they must thank the Italians anyway, because even if they are almost 10 years into their career, in Italy they only started to be followed for the last 5 years.

They end up laughing and joking.

RI Milano 20

But the thing that I personally liked the most was a comment on Paoletta’s Twitter.

Paoletta is a radio speaker, long ago, while on the radio they were broadcasting the song by Nek, she commented that Nek was the moral winner of Sanremo 2015. I was very sad and angry.

Here is his tweet from last night:

#Twitter @Paoletta_F Grande impatto, Piazza Duomo abbraccia @ilvolo. Per me è LA prima volta che li sento live e ho voglia di un concerto! @GianGinoble @IBoschetto @piero_barone #RILIVE @RadioItalia 🔊🗣#IlVolo #IlVoloSicilia grazie per la condivisione

I translate:

Great impact, Piazza Duomo embraces IL VOLO.
For me it’s the first time I hear them live, and I want a concert.

And also this comment on twitter of MUSICA TV OFFICIAL:

#Twitter @MusicaTvOfficial
Unico grande amore: e piazza Duomo tira fuori la voce! @ilvolo @GianGinoble @IBoschetto @piero_barone #RILIVE @RadioItalia 🇮🇹❤

I translate:

Unique GRANDE AMORE and Piazza Duomo brings out the voice: IL VOLO.

And finally an article that speaks well of our boys and their performance:

RadioItalia Article – click here

In Piazza Duomo also “L’AMORE SI MUOVE”: only applause for Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca.

It’s time for another first time to RADIO ITALIA LIVE – THE CONCERT: on stage in Piazza Duomo, in Milan, IL VOLO debuts.

The power of the voices of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca resounds throughout the square: “L’AMORE SI MUOVE” in the audience, right in front of the Milan Cathedral. The trio takes in the applause of the crowd, full of amazement for the three prodigy boys.

“It’s time to sing together”: so IL VOLO anticipates their encore in “GRANDE AMORE”. One by one, the three singers walk the entire catwalk and approach the audience: first Gianluca, then Ignazio and finally Piero. “You are my only big love” is the statement that the trio launches with force and enthusiasm to all the spectators, who return with a full voice singing the piece that, in 2015, had triumphed at the Sanremo Festival.

The phenomenal voices of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca come together in a shivering finale. Then, the trio intones the refrain again to hear one last time the impressive choir of Piazza Duomo. “Hurray, the music!” Is the cry that closes the show.

RI Milano 21

What to say, it was simply fantastic, the guys were amazing and people reacted by singing.

The people present, not all fans of the IL VOLO, could hear and appreciate the magnificent voices of the boys.

I feel very proud.

Tell me your thoughts.

IL VOLO: PENUMBRAS by Daniela

Perhaps not everyone knows that in February of this year IL VOLO recorded a tribute record to SANDRO.

SANDRO is an Argentine singer who won a Latin Grammy honoring his career and is also known as SANDRO DE AMERICA. Unfortunately, it’s been 10 years since Sandro is gone.

One of his successes, PENUMBRAS was sung in duet with Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio.

I would say it’s a beautiful and very sweet song

Beautiful voices, begins Gianluca, then Sandro then Piero and Ignazio.

It is a very poignant song.

Here is a photo of Sandro De America.

Sandro De America

Here are the words of the song.

PENUMBRAS

The night was lost in your hair
The moon attaches to your skin
And the sea felt jealous
And he wanted to be in your eyes too

Your dangerous, sensual mouth
Your hands are sweetness
Your fatal breath, slow fire
That burn my anxieties and my heart

Tenderness that rushed hurry
He caresses that love offers
The whims were saying very slowly
Between the darkness of a soft interior

I love you and nothing matters anymore
Life dictated it this way
If you want, I’ll give you the world
But do not ask me not to love you like that

If you want, I’ll give you the world
But do not ask me not to love you like that
This does not love you like that
This does not love you like that

                                       ***************

And that’s why I told you about this song, because last week it was ranked in Radio Vox Top 20, in place #11, while Noche Sin Dia is at #19.

Vox Top 20

So, do you like this song?

Have you already heard it?

I await your opinions.
