Roberto Alagna is a peerless communicator. No other tenor of our time radiates joy like his when he lifts his voice above an orchestra. His sensual tenor thrills whether deployed in opera or pop. Having some Spanish ancestry, he sings Pasi?n’s music with total identification.
Pasión is not the album of some opera singer come to add a little grandeur to popular song. Quite the reverse, this is a declaration of love from one of the greatest voices of the century, a statement of his love for repertoires containing songs that for decades have brought millions of people – Roberto Alagna included – to tears and laughter and quivers of emotion. Roberto Alagna has recorded songs such as Bésame mucho and Quizás, quizás, quizás, songs one has loved, who knows how many times, as well as countless Cuban boleros, tangos from Argentina, Mexican classics... Roberto Alagna confesses, “All these songs mean something to us instantly. They’re songs I’ve known for such a long time.”
Cuban boleros and Argentinean tangos constitute the core of Pasi?n’s program. Yvan Cassar’s ingenious and felicitous arrangements preserve and emphasize every song’s musical fingerprint Roberto Alagna’s interpretations of the repertoire of 1950s and 1960s pop star Luis Mariano, C’est magnifique!, was a success. It is high time to test Alagna’s crossover appeal outside France; Pasi?n gives us plenty of possibilities!
