"These songs are a part of me,” states star tenor Roberto Alagna. Raised in Paris on the musical heritage of his Sicilian parents, Alagna sings their homeland’s tarantellas, waltzes and lullabies with thrilling authenticity. The traditional songs of The Sicilian, freshly arranged by Yvan Cassar - producer of successful 'C’est Magnifique', Alagna’s first DG solo album - sparkle with fun, pathos and colour. One of this album’s many highlights is Nino Rota’s song “Parla più piano”, love theme of the legendary Coppola film trilogy, The Godfather.
