The album, a personal tribute to the musical traditions of his homeland, features mainly Neapolitan love songs from Bocelli's childhood.

The album was also nominated for "album of the year" at the 2009 Classical BRIT Awards.

His worldwide hit albums such as Romanza, Amore, Passione and Love in Portofino have made him synonymous with love and romance. On July 10th, 13 titles from his incredible Pop catalog and 3 bonus discs of memorable Bocelli performances will be released in a special edition box set.
On Sept.15, 2011, internationally acclaimed tenor Andrea Bocelli gave a once in a lifetime, free concert as a gift to New York City on Central Park's Great Lawn. The spectacular event was captured for CD/DVD, making for the ultimate Bocelli collection, appealing to both loyal fans and new admirers alike. The varied repertoire includes some of Bocelli's finest performances to date from both the worlds of classical and pop he so successfully straddles unlike any other artist.
Sogno consists entirely of new compositions, much of which are deliberately skewed toward the pop audience whom Andrea Bocelli was well on his way to earning in the spring of 1999. In other words, it's an album that seems to be a progression, at least on the surface, but it's also a consolidation of the crossover audience that he wooed over the course of the late '90s.
