Addio Sogni

Welcome to the nominations for the third annual Alfie Boe Best Ever (recorded) song poll – I know it doesn’t seem too long since we chose our favourite live song but we need something to keep us going over the summer, don’t we?

The current list of songs nominated in past years can be found on Spotify by clicking here – if your favourite song isn’t listed, please let me know and we’ll add to the list.  All you need to do is fill in the form*:

The only restriction is that it needs to be a song recorded by Alfie.

Nominations will close mid August ready for voting to begin shortly after and the top ten will be counted down from the end of August…which will be ten weeks until the start of the Ball and Boe tour!

The first winner was, to no one’s surprise, Bring Him Home but the second winner was from Alfie’s most recent album, Serenata, Addio Sogni do Gloria.  Bring Him Home didn’t even make the top three!  Will it make it back to the top this year?  It’s over to you – here’s last year’s top ten to help you think:

on 10th November!

For those of us anxiously awaiting to hear the whole of Alfie Boe’s new album, Serenata, (oh, you mean all of us?) the fantastic news from Decca is that the release date has been brought forward by a week!!!!!

This may be due to the fact that Michael Ball and Katherine Jenkins both have albums due for release on 17th November but whatever the reason it’s a win for Alfie fans!  Alfie fans will also still win on 17th as Alfie is also featuring on Katherine’s album, with his duet of Barcelona.

As there is now a whole new week to play with, that means there’s plenty of time for a few CD signing sessions – pretty please Alfie and Decca!

In another bit of good news and fabulous marketing, Alfie has also released a new Serenata video, featuring the soaring vocals of Addio Sogni Di Gloria  thanks Alfie!

Serenata can be pre-ordered below:

Yesterday evening saw Alfie Boe headline Classic FM Live at the Royal Albert Hall and it’s fair to say that he wowed the whole audience.  Performing at the end of the evening, Alfie’s magnificent voice shone through Addio Sogni and Chitarra Romana.  Of the two songs, both from Alfie’s forthcoming album, Serenata, we as an audience are much more familiar with Chitarra Romana as Alfie has sung it on a number of occasions in recent years. It is also of course, featured on his previous album of Neopolitan songs, La Passione.   Addio Sogni, however, is much fresher and it was the stand out song for me.  Easily filling the Royal Albert Hall, Alfie’s wonderful tones soared effortlessly over the orchestra; it was a hairs on the back of your neck moment. I should say that he was supported brilliantly by Matt White on guitar.

Although Alfie’s performance was the highlight, the whole evening was a triumph.  The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Timothy Henty, was a delight, particularly the triumphant end, Tchaikovsky’s 1812 overture.   The performances of Milos Karadglic, Julian Bliss and Ji Liu (classical guitar, clarinet and piano respectively) were masterpieces to watch and listen to, while Sol3Mio showed huge talent.  They are supporting Alfie on his arena tour at the end of the year and their amusing stage presence promises a fun show, especially if Alfie sings with them too.

To round off the evening perfectly, another cold wait at the stage door (it is never warm!) was rewarded by an appearance by the man himself, spending approximately ten minutes signing, posing for photos and chatting.  A couple of early birthday cards were handed in before the show and he confirmed he got them so thank you staff at the Royal Albert Hall!

No video that I’m aware of but click here for the link to Classic FM – the concert will be broadcast on Saturday 12-3pm.  In the meantime, here is Alfie talking to Classic FM presenter Jane Jones (click here)

Nice to hear Alfie elaborate on his differing fan bases and showing them different genres of music.
