Amore: Romantic Italian Love Songs by Luciano Pavarotti

Amore: Romantic Italian Love Songs is an album by Luciano Pavarotti, an Italian operatic tenor who also crossed over into popular music.  This album was released September 1992 on the Decca Records label.  This is one of my favorite albums I like to put on to relax. This album contains such great songs as Nessun Dorma, O Sole Mio, Vesti La Giubba and much more.  If you are a fan of opera like I am, I highly recommend this album to your music library.



Extravergine by Micheal Castaldo

Extravergine is a Christmas album recorded by Italian tenor Micheal Castaldo released November 15, 2011 on the Vital Records label. This Christmas album was well performed as all these great classics are sung in Italian and well recorded. This twelve track album contains such great works as O Holy Night, Little Drummer Boy, What Child is This, Oh Come All Ye Faithful and so much more.  This is a Christmas Album you want to add to your library.


Alexander Kariotis and The Rock Opera Orchestra

In my review is for the CD Alexander Kariotis and The Rock Opera Orchestra.  Alexander has talent of mixing Opera with Rock.  This CD opens with the Opera classic Nessun Dorma mixed with his song No One Sleeps.  This song was very well done.  I never hear of a classic opera song done with Rock but he managed to make this his own.  Other great cuts on this CD is Lucky in Love, Home, and his rendition of the Opera classic Vesti La Grubba which is done twice on this album first mixed with his composition Hide the Tears.  The final cut on this CD is Vesti La Grubba Mixed featuring Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels.  This whole CD was very well done and I am looking forward to hearing more of his work soon. img_20160520_0001
