Bocelli describes Calleja as one of his favourite tenors

The world-famous Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli wrote on Facebook that Joseph Calleja is one of his favourite tenors at the moment in the world of lyrical music.

Bocelli said that before getting to know him, he already admired the timbre of the Maltese tenor’s voice, and now can also appreciate his generosity.

On his part, Joseph Calleja replied on Facebook that he felt honoured by these words from Bocelli.

Bocelli was the guest of honour at the annual concert given by Joseph Calleja every summer in front of a crowd which filled the Granaries in Floriana last Saturday.

The concert commemorated the 20th anniversary of Calleja’s debut in the lyrical music scene. Also taking part were Sir Bryn Terfel, Maltese soprano Gillian Zammit, and other guest singers, accompanied by the National Philharmonic Orchestra.
