More Info:

“IL VOLO SINGS MORRICONE”, Il Volo’s new much-awaited album dedicated to the Maestro, will be released worldwide on November 5th. It is an exciting journey through the art and music of one of the greatest composers of the 20th century.

As a sign of the high esteem held for him, they decided to devote part of their amazing career to Ennio Morricone, with the endorsement from the Maestro’s family for this exclusive global project.

“IL VOLO SINGS MORRICONE” is an album with 14 songs recalling the Maestro’s legendary melodies, which have remained forever etched in our memory, including an absolute gem: “L’estasi dell’oro” (“The Ecstasy of Gold” from the movie “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” – “Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo”), which, for the first time ever, will be accompanied by lyrics written by Andrea Morricone specifically for Il Volo. It also features “I colori dell’amore” (“The colours of love”), an unreleased track composed by Andrea Morricone for the trio that was unexpectedly performed live for the first time, together with other songs by Ennio Morricone, at a big concert held at the Arena di Verona on June 5, 2021.

The album was recorded in the Forum Studios in Rome, with Maestro Marcello Rota conducting the historic Roma Sinfonietta Orchestra, which – since it was established in 1994 – worked extensively with Maestro Ennio Morricone, performing under his musical direction at some of the world’s most prestigious concert halls.

The album also features other key collaborations: violinist David Garrett in “La Califfa” (“The Lady Caliph”), Hauser from 2CELLOS in “Se” (“If”) and trumpet player Chris Botti in “Come Sail Away”.

Il Volo have always felt closely connected to the Maestro, also appearing on stage with him in 2011, at Piazza del Popolo in Rome, to perform “E piů ti penso” ("The more I think of you") on a medley of scores by Ennio Morricone from the films “Once Upon a Time in America” (“C'era una volta in America”) and “Malčna”.

A record that is destined to go straight to the heart of millions of people worldwide, as it combines the unforgettable melodies by the celebrated conductor, musician, composer and author of some of the greatest film soundtracks in the history of Italian and international cinema with the trio’s unique voices.
