Filippa Giordano - Filippa Giordano (2000)
2000 | Classical, Vocal | MP3 320kbps | 103 MB

This eponymous album from the Italian singer Filippa Giordano confounds expectations. Released on the classical label Erato, Giordano mixes arias with contemporary songs such as the Ennio Morricone/Roger Waters "Lost Boys Calling" from the 1999 Golden Globe-winning movie The Legend of 1900. Using a conventional orchestra sometimes supplemented by electronic keyboards and occasional drums, the production achieves a slick and glossy chart-friendly sound which will find favour with fans of Whitney Houston and Celine Dion.

Key to the album are two versions of "Casta Diva" from Bellini's Norma, between which arias from Samson and Dalila, Tosca, Carmen and La Traviata sit rather uncomfortably alongside several pop anthems. With the vocal flavour of Broadway and a hint of Andrew Lloyd-Webber the intention seems to be to add contemporary crossover appeal to opera in much the same way that Andrea Bocelli has done with such conspicuous success. It's doubtful serious opera aficionados will care much for Filippa Giordano, though music lovers with a soul background may well find the album an attractive entry into the sometimes-forbidding world of the classical diva.
