The internationally acclaimed Italian tenor has released another beautiful single ahead of his upcoming new album Believe. Following Andrea Bocelli’s You’ll Never Walk Alone is a duet called Pianissimo, sung with the sensational mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli. The classical singers appear in an intimate music video of the track together, which you can view below.
Pianissimo was composed by Mauro Malavasi, who has worked alongside Bocelli for almost three decades.
The brand new duet’s minimalist elegance was inspired by the French avant-garde composer Erik Satie.
Bocelli said of Pianissimo: “Pianissimo is an enlightened dialogue between a couple who feel God’s gaze and love move through their romantic relationship.
“As is often found in Malavasi’s compositions, the piano is centre stage as it accompanies the singers’ intertwined melodies.”

While Bartoli added: “It was wonderful to sing the Pianissimo duet with Andrea. It is such a beautiful melody – I really enjoyed it!”
The stunning new music video was shot in the grounds and oval room of Tuscany’s Tenuta Corbinaia.
The short film was directed by Riccardo Guarnieri and Luca Scota and features beautiful overhead shots of the Italian countryside during the late summer.
Earlier this month, Express.co.uk asked Bocelli himself about his upcoming new album Believe and the duets with Bartoli and also Alison Krauss.
