IL VOLO : MUSICA CHE RESTA by Daniela

Every time I read this title MUSICA CHE RESTA, I think that a title of a song could not be more suitable than this, for a song sung by our boys.

But let’s find out more about this song, little news, because privacy is absolute.

We all know that GRANDE AMORE had already been written for many years, and who held the rights on the text, made our boys listen to the song, this man, is called Pasquale Mammaro.

And here’s what Pasquale Mammaro has published these days:

MUSICA 01

PASQUALE MAMMARO = Once again at the Sanremo Festival with a song proposed by me to Gianluca, Piero and Ignazio! I hope that “Musica che resta” will be able to repeat the success of “Grande Amore” …. the song is signed by my friends Piero Romitelli, Emilio Munda, Antonello Carozza and … Gianna Nannini

And Piero Romitelli, has published this:

MUSICA 02

PIERO ROMITELLI = Return to the Sanremo Festival with “Musica che resta” interpreted by IL VOLO. I am happy to share this adventure with my old friends Emilio Munda and Antonello Queens Carozza. The piece is also embellished by the pen by Gianna Nannini. Thanks to Pasquale Mammaro who made all this possible.

In the newspaper of Marsala, this beautiful article that I translate for you.

MUSICA 03

Marsala – As we wrote a few days ago, Il Volo is among the 24 Big that will participate in the next Sanremo Festival, aired from 5 to 9 February 2019. They will present the song entitled “Musica che resta”. The official announcement was given by Pippo Baudo and Fabio Rovazzi during “Sanremo Giovani”, on RAI 1. The group, formed by the Marsala Ignazio Boschetto, by Piero Barone and by Gianluca Ginoble, won the 2015 Sanremo Festival with the song “Grande amore” and with the same piece represented Italy at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015, ranking in third place overall.

IL VOLO said: “It will be the best way to celebrate ten years of our career. Returning to sing in Sanremo, the stage that saw us born. And as we wrote above, the song is titled Music che resta’ (Music that remains) and was written by Emilio Munda, with Piero Romitelli and Antonello Carozza, the whole was enhanced by the collaboration of the rocker Gianna Nannini who, after hearing it for the first time, she fell in love.”

Emilio Munda, one of the authors: “I’m really excited about this result. The only thought that the song ‘Musica che resta’ will be heard all over the world during 2019 makes me very happy. The song is a lyrical pop genre. With Il Volo I have touched all the variety of artists and genres. I love to range in all musical genres as I collaborate and write for Francesco Renga, Nina Zilli, the Nomads, Umberto Tozzi, Valerio Scanu and others. Love for lyrics is losing a little polish? The lyric was born in Italy but in recent years is appreciated much more abroad, as in Russia or the United States, but I hope that this song, which thanks to Sanremo will reach everyone, will give many to approach again or for the first time in this genre. I hope that this music pleases, even to young people like me. How do I live these hours? I’m living them like a whirl of emotions. It is the first time that I have participated in such a great musical project: a piece that takes part in the 69th edition of the Italian Song Festival, interpreted by an international group. I always want to thank my friend Piero Romitelli, and Pasquale Mammaro who has taken care of it from an editorial point of view.”

Ignazio, Piero and Gianluca were artistically discovered at “Ti lascio una canzone” (I leave you a song) by Antonella Clerici (2009) – which took place right at the Ariston Theater in Sanremo – they undertook, within a few years, an international career of the highest level. They have trod the most prestigious stages, winning a series of very prestigious record and prestigious awards.

MUSICA 04

I would say that the authors have a lot of confidence in their composition, so let’s get ready, because this song, hopefully, will leave its mark !!

MUSICA CHE RESTA, in our heart.

A Grammy for the Guys??? – from Daniela

Daniela sent us this article and link.  This has been making the rounds on the various social media sites…. awesome news!

It’s an interview that the guys have released during Sanremo.

IL VOLO: LONG LIVE LATIN POP

 The young tenors change sound: “We have to renew ourselves, risking, the future is brave, we start again from Miami, with an album produced by Emilio Estefan, and a duet with Gloria” 

Sanremo, 11 February 2018 – “You never get used to such a great emotion”, assures Il Volo, talking about the hot shiver on the stage of the Ariston, once again chosen as the crossroads of his career. Three years after the triumph of Grande Amore, in fact, Piero Barone, Ignazio Boschetto and Gianluca Ginoble sought the reassuring applause of the Festival before flying under the Miami sun, to open a new chapter in their lives. “Returning to Sanremo was a great honor and we are extremely grateful to Baglioni,” they explain. «A standing ovation has been added to the applause and the return has become perfect».

 Coming down from the stage has the idea of ​​trying again? Maybe in a few years? 

Gianluca: «Once you have won, you can return to competition in Sanremo only with a song able to repeat the feat. Because, at that point, you can not be content to compete in the group, but you are forced to head a race ».

 Actually, Sanremo was decisive three years ago. 

Piero: “At the time we suffered the idea of ​​doing concerts abroad and returning to Italy just for the holidays, so we said: let’s go to Sanremo, or it goes or breaks it. We had nothing to lose, because in Italy we were known, but, let’s say it all, not too much appreciated. We could not find with the public the empathy we had abroad “.

 What do you think has discovered the public of you thanks to the Festival?

Piero: «That we are not the only guys able to sing O sole mio and Un Amore così grande, but we know how to embark on even more risky enterprises, succeeding, I think, quite well. Just think about the concert with Placido Domingo in Piazza Santa Croce in Florence, born a year and a half ago from a winning idea of ​​our manager Michele Torpedine ».

Now, however, the time has come to change direction.

Piero: «I believe that an artist should stick to the times and, why not, throw an eye to the genres and sounds that enliven the musical scene at that time. Although the classic never dies, in fact, ours is a genre that someone can consider old. So we decided to give a good refresh to our music, putting ourselves in the hands of a great Latin producer like Emilio Estefan, who will certainly not sing us with a symphony orchestra ».

Gianluca: «In these years we have taken refuge in the covers with the awareness that it would have been useless to record a record of unpublished classic, because the audience of our concerts jump on chairs especially when we do O sole mio e Un amore così grande. People are fond of that kind of repertoire and to propose something really new you have to change the register ».

 Where does the road start from?

 Piero: «From Miami, we fly there on 19 February because on the 22nd we have the Lo Nuestro Prize in which the best Latino musicians of the year participate».

Gianluca: «In 2019 we will do a ten-year career, people abroad have learned to appreciate us as well. Now we want a Flight 2.0. In the new album there is a lot of rhythm but also beautiful vocal parts, Il Volo with a new sound. More pop, a light voice, but always of quality ».

 Produce Estefan. Has the superstar wife come alive?

 Gianluca: «Yes. There is a duet with Gloria Estefan and we are honored. But the meeting between an icon of Latin music like her with a group that has our characteristics you can also wait for it, others are absolutely surprising alongside our name. Starting with the first single ».

 Who would have liked to host?

 Ignazio: «Shakira. But already Gloria is so much, so much stuff. “

 Why this Latin turn?

 Ignazio: «In the United States we have succeeded at seventy percent with the adult and thirty with the young, while in Latin countries like ours we have the girls under the hotels».

Gianluca: «When I read the criticisms that define us as young old people, I think  are not completely unfounded at times. I am 23 years old and artistically, I would like to live a little more my age. I am convinced I can do it only now, because then it would be difficult to go back “.

 The Stones used to say ” Il tempo è dalla mia parte ”: time is on my side.

 Gianluca: «True. We have different tastes, vocality and dreams. But everyone knows that it is the group that makes the strength and that it would be stupid to divide our paths. But to continue walking together we must renew ourselves, risking. The future is of the brave ».

 Turning the world, what was the most surprising discovery?

 Ignazio: «We went to Tokyo thinking of sushi and we left again admired by an extraordinary culture and social organization».

Gianluca: «In Japan there is a civilization and an order that are difficult to find other latitudes».

 A few stumbles?

 Piero: “A few gaffes, rather. Like when Ignazio, for example, before the Pope, instead of saying “His Holiness” came out with “salve” ».

 Tokio, Sanremo, the album with Emilio. Another dream to achieve?

 Piero: «A Grammy we must try to win it. In Sanremo we would have liked to sing one of the new pieces. But it would have been useless to play there songs that the public could not find the next day on social networks or on music platforms. “

Gianluca: «Emilio has said it: this will be a Grammy Album. And we believe it ».

~Il Volo Super-Guest to Sanremo ~ by Daniela

Today in Italy several pages have reported this news:  IL VOLO will be in Sanremo as super-guests.

Of course I can not describe the happiness  all of us feel with this news, but we will have to be very cautious because last year it was reported for certain their presence but then it was not true.

I chose the article published by ZON.IT and written by Antonella Esposito.   I will translate it for you.

SANREMO: ANNOUNCED THE PRESENCE OF IL VOLO

il-volo

Sanremo is coming closer and with it comes the first rumors about the hosts and the name of IL VOLO stands out.

Sanremo is always Sanremo.  Claudio Baglioni will present the festival. He is also responsible for the entire organization and choice of the songs and the list of international guests. He wants to  respect more than ever the historical phrase that has made it a world famous singing contest.  Baglioni,  (the Roman songwriter) is making his first Sanremo beautiful as he will be conducting (he is Sanremo’s artistic director) and also for the guest series which he will propose. 

In short, Baglioni will do his utmost to make a beautiful figure in conducting his first Sanremo festival.

Many different names have been mentioned, from Miriam Leone to Ilaria D’Amico, by Sabrina Ferilli to the brothers Fiorello, but no confirmation so far.  Half  certainty seems to concern the boys of Il Volo instead.  As announced by TV Sorrisi e Canzoni, the return of Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca would be almost certain.  The three artists after winning the GRANDE AMORE song in 2015, would be ready to re-enter Sanremo 2018, the first time led by Baglioni and his co-conducting team still top-secret (at least until January).

The news of Il Volo in Sanremo had already been given in the previous edition and then denied. Fans of the trio representing beautiful singing in Italy and overseas, can not but stay on edge and trust in the confirmation of the announcement given by the weekly publication of music and television. However there are some details that leave us uncertain and hoping.

IL VOLO has recently been involved with recording tracks that will feature the new album released in 2018.   Also in October, there are photos that portray the three artists working on the disc, in the company of their producer, Emilio Estefan, husband of the famous Gloria.

Everything suggests that the stage of the ARISTON (the name of the theater) could be a launch pad for the single, which will open the brand new Sony Latin music CD.  What better place than Sanremo to present what the trio called “a pop revolution”?  

We will  learn exactly who will be on the list of international guests  at the preview press conference, scheduled for January.  Until then, the confidentiality, chosen by Baglioni, for this 2018 edition, will have the best of any chatter and gossip.

We just have to cross our fingers …… meanwhile, below is Il Volo in Sanremo 2015.

If you love something, set it free…

If you love something set it free, if it comes back to you, it was meant to be. We’ve all heard this quote, or variations thereof, many times and it means different things to different people.

s - feb 5.15 (4)

I’ve been following the announcements of Il Volo’s various concerts around Italy and a really sad and scary thought came to mind – Il Volo may not be coming to the US at all this year? I know we are all hoping it is not so and maybe they’ll squeeze North and South America into October & November, but what if they don’t come back to the US this year, even though they said they would? But, isn’t this what we wanted for them? To finally get recognized in their own country? Il Volo is living their dream right now, being mobbed by Italian fans in every city they travel to.

i - rec ambassadore

So, we can’t be begrudging them their happiness right now. It’s time we set them free to live their lives as Il Volo and not just “our” guys – for they are the “world’s” guys, now! It’s like we were their adoptive parents that nurtured, encouraged, and watched them grow into the men they are today. But even though we gave them all of our love, it just wasn’t enough. There was still something missing in their lives. We all knew what it was – they wanted to find their real parents. In saying this, their real parents are Italy! Now they have found their real parents and we are feeling like we have been abandoned; that they don’t care about us anymore and will forget about us with their instant fame and fortune. But it’s not really instant, they have been working hard for over five long years, leaving their real families and friends behind to do what they love. They’ve finally found the love they were missing – love from their homeland, Italy. But don’t worry, they will not forget us. We may not see them as often as we’d like, but they will be back to visit. They just have more people to visit now. And think of this, there are many countries who love them and they have never even been to those countries! We have to learn to share them with the world…

I just finished watching the Porta a Porta show (great, if you haven’t seen it yet!) and they did admit that they were experiencing now the “price” of fame – they have now really lost their privacy! No longer are they invisible walking down the street!

We really are so fortunate today, living in this high-tech world with social media. They are literally at our fingertips whenever we want to see them, be it FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, or the countless videos and interviews that have been uploaded onto You Tube! No, it’s not the same as being there, but it’s pretty close…and of course we have their music everywhere we go, our iPods, at work, in the car, or anywhere else!

In less than three months, they will be competing for Eurovision. As proud parents, we will cheer them on until our voices get hoarse! Of course we want the best for them – we want them to win! Even though their winning may take them away from us even more? Yes! Because they’ve worked hard and they deserve it. And if they don’t win? We’ll be right there to catch them when they fall. Of course, I did just read somewhere recently, can’t really remember though, that the bookies, once again, have Il Volo winning Eurovision! Although by a slim margin, they did win Sanremo and the bookies were right!
a - sanremo win

So, as cliché as this might sound, our guys, the “world’s guys,” are flying high right now. This is what they wanted. As parents, we always want our children to achieve their goals and be happy. We should be happy for them right now, and not feeling sorry for ourselves if they might not come back to the US this year.

…if it comes back to you, it was meant to be. Don’t worry, Il Volovers – they will be back; because it’s meant to be! They may be somewhat out of sight, but never out of mind!

Pensively…
