P.C.Christmas gift 2003. World-famous tenor Andrea Bocelli's memoir.
"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. He 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." Fascinating 10* memoir as is the beaut. music/song Con te partiro`a fav. c.d. memorable duet with soprano Sarah Brightman.
