“Arrivederci means ‘see you again soon’ in Italian it holds the promise of a time when our eyes will meet again. With this album I wanted to revisit the most beautiful music from opera to traditional Italian songs from the last century, the like of which will never be written again”. Vittorio Grigolo

A stunning collection of thirteen of the best Italian songs and opera arias personally chosen by Vittorio Grigolo, proves just why his recent opera performances are garnering rave reviews. Inspiring critics to proclaim Vittorio as “Irresistible” – Daily Telegraph and “Explosively dynamic” – The Independent, Vittorio is an opera star for a brand new generation.

‘Arrivederci’ combines Grigolo’s selection of songs from the past century that are steeped in Italian tradition with a handful of beautiful arias. Recorded with Pier Giorgio Morandi conducting the Orchestra del Teatro Regio di Parma, this album is a deeply personal homage to the music with which the great tenors of the past have thrilled generations of music lovers.

From incomparable arias such as Verdi’s La donna è mobile (Rigoletto) and Giordano’s Amor ti vieta to the quintessentially Neapolitan tunes of Core ‘ngrato (Cardillo) and Mattinata (Leoncavallo), ‘Arrivederci’ reflects the sounds and traditions of a period in Vittorio’s life he will never forget.
