The Art of Singing

“Chénier, the poet, treats the theme of love understood in its broadest sense. [Franco] Corelli, in that recording, seemed instead to be treating the theme of his love for his own art, the art of singing — that art which is capable of captivating, beguiling, and touching even those spirits most hardened by the trials of life.”

Andrea Bocelli, The Music of Silence, trans. Consuelo Bixio Hackney (Milwaukee, WI: Amadeus Press, 2011), p.12-13
