Il Volo — the winners of the Eurovision 2015 televote — are firmly back in the spotlight.
After their hugely successful 50-date Grande Amore worldwide tour, they’re poised to release their new album on September 30.
Titled Notte Magica, the album will pay homage to the three tenors — Placido Domingo, Luciani Pavarotti and Jose Carreras — who inspired their successful pop-opera career.
Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero previously honoured their heroes with a special one-off concert in Florence’s Piazza Sante Croce. In July they sold out the 6,000-capacity space — filled with people of all ages who worship at the altar of Il Volo.
During the concert the trio performed a varied programme of Neapolitan, Italian and international music.
As ever they blended in complete harmony with songs from famous musicals and classical arias. They even duetted with Placido Domingo on one of the compositions.
Domingo’s reaction to working with Il Volo was beyond positive.
“I am very happy to be with Piero, Ignazio and Gianluca, conducting them on this magical night under the stars in such a beautiful city, Florence!” he said at the time. “I really love these guys. They are performing such a great repertoire around the world – the same music I’m singing at my own concerts.”
