Today, world-renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli releases a brand-new duet, ‘Pianissimo’, with internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli, ahead of his new album release on November13th. Written by composer Mauro Malavasi, who has been working with Andrea for almost 30 years, the song is composed in a minimalistic and elegant style inspired by the French avant-garde composer Erik Satie.
Andrea explains, “‘Pianissimo’ is an enlightened dialogue between a couple who feel God’s gaze and love move through their romantic relationship. As in often found in Malavasi’s compositions, the piano is centre stage as it accompanies the singers’ intertwined melodies.”
Cecilia Bartoli adds, “It was wonderful to sing the ‘Pianissimo’ duet with Andrea. It is such a beautiful melody – I really enjoyed it!”
A video, released to accompany the new duet, features Andrea and Cecilia in the grounds and oval room of the elegant Tenuta Corbinaia in Tuscany. Directed by Riccardo Guarnieri and Luca Scota, the video features stunning overhead shots of the Italian countryside in late summer, perfectly complimenting the duo’s emotive duet.
