Juan Diego Flrez, Decca's "dashing tenor, the king of the bel canto repertory" now joins the illustrious list of tenors to record an album of ever-popular Neapolitan and Italian songs, including some in arrangements made for his idol and mentor Luciano Pavarotti. o complete the full Italian flavour these recordings were made in the Italian seaside resort of Fano, just south of Pesaro where Juan Diego makes his summer home -- as Pavarotti did before him. For the orchestral tracks the Pesaro-based Filarmonica Giacchino Rossini is conducted by the gifted young Italian Carlo Tenan.

Juan Diego Flrez developed a special love for the Italian and Neapolitan songs he learned from listening to recordings by his idols, Enrico Caruso and Luciano Pavarotti, and they were the inspiration for Italia, his 2015 collection on Decca. Flrez possesses a smooth and warm tenor voice that is well-suited to this amorous and sentimental repertoire, sounding intimate and romantic in his low to middle range but rising to passionate intensity in his highest notes. Many familiar songs are here, including the classics 'O Sole Mio, Mattinata, Nel blu, dipinto di blu (Volare), and Arrivederci, Roma, along with a smattering of operatic arias by Rossini and Donizetti, so Flrez is able to demonstrate both his pop side as well and his skills as one of the world's leading bel canto singers. Guest artists include mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital, accordionist Ksenija Sidorova, and guitarists Guido Sodo, Walter Zanetti, and Craig Ogden, and Flrez is accompanied by the Filarmonica Gioachino Rossini, conducted by Carlo Tenan.
