While the album is almost complete, I go on to introducing all those who have collaborated in its realization. This week I will tell you about the second Siren: Stefania Fratepietro.
A warm, elegant, enveloping and silky voice, an intense interpreter who immediately proved to be perfect for this project; it was a real pleasure to have her sing with me also because, for geographical reasons, Stefania brings me back to my childhood and my origins. We come from the same town in Liguria, did you know we even attended the same high school?
Stefania duets with me in “Mon émouvant amour”, a song in which Aznavour talks about love and the way of communicating this feeling with a mute girl: a bond that goes beyond words, that lives in vibrations, looks and energies. A song that was sung with many great performers, including Liza Minnelli.
“… a moving dance that you set for me, your fascinating gestures look like embroidery,
then when you point out that you love me, I understand that I like to see your voice”
