Amici Forever music CDs Selections recorded at Shine Studios, Metropolis London, and Budapest Radio Studios. Amici (friends) Forever is a predominantly British vocal group made up of five classically trained singers who, in addition to possessing voluminous vocal chops, also have pop-star-photogenic looks. In the age of classical/pop crossovers like Bond and Charlotte Church, how could their highly touted debut album, THE OPERA BAND, not be a recipe for stardom? Though the temptation to belt out an album's worth of operatic versions of pop hits was surely there, Amici Forever didn't choose that route. While there is a bit of pop-oriented material (an Italian-language version of "Unchained Melody," "Requiem for a Soldier [Theme from a Band of Brothers]"), the bulk of the album is classically minded, drawing on such composers as Mozart, Fauré, Dvorak, and, of course, Puccini ("Nessun dorma!" which seems to have become the "Freebird" of the opera world). The music over which the five vocalists strut their collective stuff is a mix of traditional orchestration and more modern, electronics-assisted touches; imagine Andrew Lloyd Webber getting down with David Foster at the Met. THE OPERA BAND finds Amici Forever to be fully prepared for their inevitable world domination. Personnel: Richard Harvey (pipe); Richard Cottle (keyboards); Nick Patrick (percussion, programming); Miles Bould (percussion); Youki Yamamoto (programming). Recording information: Budapest Radio Studios; Metropolis, London, England; Shine Studios.

Amici Forever discography Amici Forever is made up of five camera-ready young singers with talent and charisma to spare. So what distinguishes them from the burgeoning ranks of crossover hopefuls? The group's wide vocal range and imaginative approach enables it to transform even a much-abused warhorses into fresh-sounding anthems. Their formal training provides the necessary technique and understanding to do justice to the classics, and the enthusiasm and respect they show for their material steers them far clear of the banality that mars a good deal of crossover music. DEFINED picks up where the quintet's enormously successful debut disc, OPERA BAND, left off, with more stylish arrangements of memorable melodies from the orchestral repertoire, as well as soaring, quasi-operatic ballads. Highlights include impressive vocal renditions of themes from Beethoven's Seventh Symphony ("Land and Freedom"), Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto ("Nostalgia"), Khachaturian's 'Spartacus' ("Ocean Heart"), and Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez ("Aranjuez Ma pensee"). The group also works its magic on two original songs by Ronan Hardiman, "So Far Away" and "La Fiamma Sacra," as well as Ennio Moriccone's "Nella Fantasia" and the classic Neapolitan song "Core 'ngrato." Amici Forever expertly delivers another guaranteed crowd-pleaser with DEFINED.
