Best of Luigi Lenzi
To ask 'Who is Luigi Lenzi?' is senseless. Everyone knows of him. Luigi is from Tuscany. Italy. He won a national contest for new voices in Bologna, Italy. Shortly afterwards he started to sing at the famous Gambrinus and Kursal in Montecatini Terme. Luigi also appeared at the Margherita of Viareggio. Upon his arrival in the US, Luigi sang in nightclubs, special gala events. And in a variety of different productions. Luigi returns to Italy as often as his time permits. In the 90's in Milano Luigi sang at the Casa discografica Bemtler. It was there that he recorded a beautiful song written by Mauro Casini, entitled 'Italia Italia'. After hearing of this, the great composer and director of orchestra for (RAI) Italiana contacted Luigi Lenzi in Chicago and together arranged musical performances. They performed together on radio and television. They also recorded numerous selections of the beautiful music of Italy. Mauro Casini has since passed away, the victim of a heart attack: Luigi has never forgotten Mauro and still feels his presence when he sings. Luigi continues to record and perform at major Italian Festivals throughout the country. Does Luigi sing only because he has a beautiful voice; for the attention or monetary value? Definitely not. Luigi sings because his voice is his calling his vocation. His life source be it in happiness or tears smiles or pain is through song. Listening to his songs packed with emotion always bring one back: to the core of Italy. Presently, Luigi Lenzi works with Nationally known Accordionist Joe Martino at Italian Festivals throughout the US and Italy and has done recordings together. Very Special Thanks To Aldo and Alberto Bettini, for music arrangements and recording. And Special Thanks to all those whose hard work help to bring this project to fruition.
