Juan Diego Flórez - Italia CD

‘I grew up with the sound of Caruso and Pavarotti’s joyful singing. I have spent a lot of time in Italy during my career, appearing in Pesaro’s Rossini Festival, so I was eager to record my own versions of these Italian and Neapolitan songs. They’re great fun and transport you to the heart of Italy. I was pleased to have some special friends join me on this album. They have all helped give it a unique sound which I hope you’ll enjoy! Arrivederci!’ Juan Diego Flórez
