Alfie Boe: Serenata
John Suchet's Album of the Week, 10 November 2014.
On his new release, Alfie Boe returns to his operatic voice with an album that conjures up all the magic and romance of Italy.
The tenor says he grew up listening to these songs - particularly 'O sole mio' which he grew up loving for its association with ice cream.
The production is crisp and bright and Boe's in good voice, injecting these timeless songs with all the necessary passion, warmth and joy. And there's a few songs thrown in that will make any party swing.
