Andrea Bocelli set to release Central Park concerto
25 October 2011
Acclaimed tenor Andrea Bocelli will release a CD and DVD of his free concert in New York’s Central Park.
On September 15 this year, Bocelli performed a free Central Park concert to over 60,000 people, performing a Best Of selection of his pop and classical hits with all-star guests.
He was joined on stage by the New York Philharmonic as well as guests Celine Dion, Tony Bennett, Bryn Terfel, Chris Botti, David Foster, Andrea Griminelli, Nicola Benedetti, Anna Maria Martinez and Pretty Yende.
Not only did he perform his classics but recorded five new songs: ‘Amazing Grace’, ‘New York, New York’ with Tony Bennett, ‘More’ with Chris Botti and David Foster, ‘Volare’ with Foster, and ‘Your Love (Once Upon A Time In The West)’ from the film.
All seventeen pieces – culminating in Nessun Dorma – will be released on a CD/DVD package titled Andrea Bocelli Concerto: One Night In Central Park on November 14 through Universal.
