While IL VOLO, was on tour in Genoa, they were interviewed as usual by several journalists, but two were really special, here is their interview that aired on the TGCOM24 channel, and what I translate for you.
PR1 = Hello everyone, and welcome to a new episode of the children’s news, here from the Children’s City of Genoa.
PR2= Today we start with a trio, known and appreciated all over the world: IL VOLO.
PR1 = Marta and Giorgia, two great fans of theirs, went to the International Festival of Nervi, to meet these three artists who are celebrating 10 years of career together, despite being very young. Let’s see the interview together.
MARTA = You have been together for 10 years, but how was your trio born?
I= We met in a TV show of young talents, and the producer and director of that show, joined us, and we started singing together.
GIORGIA= At your beginnings, you have been selected, to represent Italy, in a new version of “WE ARE THE WORLD”, dedicated to Haiti, how did you feel in the midst of great artists?
P= Look, I don’t know if it was a greater experience, that of doing “WE ARE THE WORLD” or that of being interviewed by you, because it never happened to be interviewed by some beautiful girls like you.
At the age of 14, we found ourselves, in the midst of great artists, but we didn’t immediately realize the event, but then we realized how important that adventure was.
MARTA = One of your big fans is Palcido Domingo, one of the three tenors, along with Pavarotti and Carreras, you also did a great CD and a concert with him, right?
G= We had the honor of sharing the stage with the great master. I guess you have dreams? We had them at your age and we continue to have them even now, and we had the honor of making our dreams come true, that of singing with one of our idols.
GIORGIA= The song “GRANDE AMORE” that you presented in Sanremo, to whom it is dedicated, if you can reveal it.
G= You are curious! Do you want to know if we have a girlfriend? “GRANDE AMORE” is our favorite song, we dedicated it and we continue to dedicate it to all the people who are 10 years old, who follow us and support us.
MARTA= Your voice has a lyrical setting, why do you use it also for pop music?
I= Between us there are differences, for example Piero is the one who has the most lyrical voice, I the most pop and Gianluca is in the middle. We also use it in pop, because we think that an artist must never be limited, we must always go further and see where we can go, and this is what we do.
GIORGIA= You tour all over the world, but what is the Italian song you sing that has the most success ever?
P= “VOLARE” ….. how does it do next? Do you know the song “VOLARE”? (the girl does not know the song)
G= You know “MI FA VOLARE” by Rovazzi (an Italian disc jokey)
P= Hello everyone, to our friends of the TG of kids.
G= We had the pleasure of being interviewed by two princesses.
P= What’s your name?
I= My name is Ignazio (with the voice of a small child).
P= We send you a big hug. Bye Bye
What do you think of this type of TG?
I find it a great idea, and that these children play in a special way, good!
I also think that our boys, as usual kindly, have agreed to be interviewed by these little beautiful “princesses”. 👸 👸
It was their first concert in Genoa and of course it was a success!
But here are the first photos, thanks to Mr. Ginoble.
The audience seemed much more timid than usual. It was the first time here, for IL VOLO and probably also for the public it was the first time, they were all very firm in their seats.
Let’s start with “A CHI MI DICE”.
But now, I want you to analyze the videos of the solos well, because they are really beautiful.
Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero, have certainly chosen songs that are absolutely suitable for them.
Gianluca, “MI MANCHERAI”
“SHE’S ALWAYS A WOMAN”
I believe that these two songs are really suitable for Gianluca. With how much love, with how much feeling, our perfect crooner performs, indeed interprets these two sweet songs.
Bravo Gianluca !! 👏
This song was a great news for us Italians. Battisti-Mogol (authors of the song) are considered among the greatest Italian authors. This is a sweet song and Ignazio interprets it very well, at first sweet and then going towards the high notes, which he performs so well.
This piece became Piero’s workhorse. It is now part of his fixed repertoire. He strongly interprets this song, he feels it “in his strings”.
“MUSICA CHE RESTA”
These following photos have been posted from the Nervi Festival page, and have been published with this comment: “Yesterday, fans of all ages filled the audience of the # FestivalNervi2019, to experience, a TOTAL experience, that left its mark: thanks to Il Volo and all the participants for giving us these unique emotions!”⭐ 💗
And these, some comments from the people:
Ottavia Primicerio = Good also as soloists, but together they are explosive, overwhelming, magnificent. And they are nice. And the orchestra … a mention for violin and piano. Great evening, young, and not so young, very old people, all happy, they sang, and they applauded for a long time.
Angela Pazzano = Three spectacular voices! Good guys with solid roots simplicity has been perceived a lot! 👏👏👏
Fran Ci = Wonderful concert! Very good, no doubt about it !! I went to accompany my mother, who has loved them for years, and I was also surprised by their sympathy and ability to involve the public. … a compliment also to the organization of the event. I found kind and helpful people. Thanks for the nice evening. 😊
Laura Tina = Fantastic location, they are great, great violinist, great orchestra … what more can we say? Let’s hope for a reply!
The regional television newscast also reported the news and made a nice article on IL VOLO. This is the title: Il Volo enchants the Nervi Festival, a great success for the pop-opera trio at the international festival.
And finally, the wonderful words of Alessandro Quarta at the end of their performance. They are beautiful words of esteem and affection: thanks Alessandro!
And thank you to Christiane Chouery for the video.
A = It is wonderful, I am breathless. I’m out of breath, not because I do the dance, even if I’m not brought for the dance, but because they force you to every concert, to always do one more beautiful than the other.
I played with the greatest singers and musicians in the world, it seems to me that I have NEVER had anything to do with the older ones.
Because for me, in this context, we have them, because they have heart, they have heart, boys. I pride myself on being Italian, (applause) but you must not applaud me, but you must applaud them.
G= Thanks Alessandro, you are great.
A = Because they really do wonderful things, thanks guys.
P= Thanks to you.
I= Obviously these words, were part of the script …. (laughter, while Alessandro waved his arm and hand to say no). I’m kidding.
In short, this time everything was fine, and the people, who seemed more detached, actually made beautiful comments and articles.
Guys go to rest, for a short while, the concert n. 5, Cinquale is ready !!
