AllMusic Review by

Though Andrea Bocelli kicks off SENTIMENTO with a 20th Century piece, the

stately setting of Rodrigo's "En Aranjuez con tu amor," the balance of the

album wisely focuses on one of the renowned vocalist's greatest strengths,

the Romantic period, as Rodrigo quickly gives way to the more sprightly

feel of Leoncavallo's "Mattinata." After moving arrestingly through

similar fare, Bocelli bookends things nicely by closing with a pair of

canzonas from Tosti; the passionate, poignant "'A vucchella" and the

quietly elegant "Vorrei morire," followed immediately by Donaudy's

"Vaghissima sembianza," which ends things on a fulsome, appropriately

romantic (with a small "r") note. Throughout SENTIMENTO, the sympathetic

accompaniment of the London Symphony Orchestra, masterfully conducted by

Lorin Maazel, provides the perfect instrumental setting for Bocelli's

evocative voice.
