Joseph Calleja’s Amore is now available for purchase and download in the United States. The Maltese tenor’s newest studio album for Decca Classics, Amore features a handpicked selection of popular Romantic songs. Drawing inspiration from legendary tenors — including Caruso, whom Joseph plays in James Gray’s upcoming film The Immigrant, Gigli, and Schipa — recording popular music of their times, Amore includes such classics as “Bésame Mucho,” “La Vie en Rose,” “Time to Say Goodbye,” and “You Raise Me Up.”
Rating the album four out of five stars, the Financial Times raved “palpably in his prime… the Maltese tenor brings a beguiling elegance, supported by some fabulous orchestrations.” Classic FM adds, “It’s not just about keeping his opera-loving fans entertained, though; Joseph’s keen to dispel the myths surrounding the genre, proving once and for all that opera is for everyone.”
