Joseph Calleja - The Magic Of Montovani [LP]
RELEASE DATE: 25th of September 2020
Decca presents the release of a brand new album in which Mantovani’s original orchestral 1950s and ‘60s recordings are remastered and set with brand new vocals – for the very first time – from one of today’s most acclaimed and sought-after singers, the award-winning Maltese tenor, JOSEPH CALLEJA.
40 years, this March, since Mantovani’s untimely death in 1980, his trademark "cascading" strings sound, which led to the star being the first artist ever recording artist to sell over 1 million stereo albums.
"My father was very much a family man despite the glamourous professional life that he led and he was very modest about his success.” - Kenneth Mantovani (son)
The album features the international opera superstar Renée Fleming and Emily D’Angelo.
