Vittorio Grigolo

Vittorio Grigolo also has a CD coming out. It's flamboyantly called "The Italian Tenor". He'll have to live up to this.

Included are ‘Una furtiva lagrima’  from L'Elisir d'Amore, ‘Quando le sere al placido’ from Luisa Miller, ‘Ella mi fu rapita’ and ‘Possente amore’ from Rigoletto, ‘Tutto parea sorridere’ and ‘Si de’ Corsari il fulmine’ from Il Corsaro, ‘Forse le soglia attinse....ma se m'e forza perderti’ from Un Ballo in Maschera, ‘Di quella pira’ from Il Trovatore, ‘Donna non vidi mai’ from Manon Lescaut, ‘E lucevan le stelle’ from Tosca, ‘Firenze è come un albero fiorito’ from Gianni Schicchi, and‘Che gelida manina’ from La Bohème.  I think this isn't a complete list. 

 This is not his first recording, and I listed the contents so you could see it's a serious operatic album and not pop songs.  I think he's worth giving a chance.
