Singing My Dreams

Abiah Mu­sic, out now


What a tal­ent. Mys­tic Mel­lor pre­dicts we are go­ing to hear more of Carly Paoli. A lot more. She ef­fort­lessly strad­dles two coun­tries – Bri­tain and Italy – and two mu­si­cal gen­res, clas­si­cal and pop­u­lar.

Born in Mans­field years ago, Paoli was trained at the Royal North­ern Col­lege of Mu­sic. She’s had a clas­si­cal vo­cal coach since the age of nine, and the op­er­atic qual­ity of her voice shines through.

This al­bum is up­lift­ing, with first-class sym­phonic ar­range­ments of crossover mu­sic such as the duet fash­ioned from the slow move­ment of Ro­drigo’s Concierto De Aran­juez (here with José Car­reras); Mem­ory Of You, us­ing the main theme from James Horner’s Leg­ends Of The Fall; and my favourite, Robert Emery’s ex­ul­tant ar­range­ment from Cinema Par­adiso for so­prano and sym­phony or­ches­tra.

Re­cently the win­ner of one of Italy’s most pres­ti­gious arts awards, the Premio Barocco, Paoli is on her way!
