Présentation de l'éditeur :

You don't have to be an opera fan to appreciate this beautifully written memoir by world-famous tenor Andrea Bocelli. Born among the vineyards of Tuscany, Bocelli was still an infant when he developed glaucoma. Music filtering into his room soothed the unsettled child. By the age of twelve he was completely blind, but his passion for music brought light back into his life.

Here Bocelli reveals the anguish of his blindness and the transcendent experience of singing. He writes about his loving parents, who nurtured his musical interests, the challenges of learning to read music in Braille and of competing in talent shows, his struggles with law school, and his desire to turn an avocation into a way of life. He describes falling in love and singing in piano bars until his big break in 1992, when a stunned Pavarotti heard him sing "Miserere." The international acclaim and success that have followed Bocelli ever since have done nothing to dull his sense of gratitude and wonder about the world. No classical music fan can afford to be without this engaging and humble memoir of a fascinating and triumphant star.

Quatrième de couverture :

Andrea Bocelli is the world's most successful male solo recording artist. He has sold an astonishing twenty million recordings worldwide, and he has sung for the Pope and for Bill Clinton. He has become the popular face of classical music, best known for his recent 'pop' album Sogno, which topped the Billboard Album Chart, and the classical Sacred Arias, which became the biggest-selling album of all time by a classical vocalist. Every album he released has either gone gold or platinum.

Yet behind this man's extraordinary success lies a story of personal triumph more dramatic than any opera. Andrea Bocelli lost his sight at the age of twelve. Undeterred, he continued to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a famous tenor, using Braille musical scores and lyric sheets.

No fan of classical music can afford to be without the charming momoirs of this fascinating star.
