Luca Canonici

Luca Canonici sings La fille du régiment: Pour mon âme
In RA format

When José Carreras came down with leukemia, he had the soundtrack ready for a new Bohème film – but the film was still to be shot. The production company chose a young unknown tenor who would act on Carreras' behalf and open and close his mouth to Carreras' singing: Luca Canonici (born 22 September 1960 in Montevarchi/Toscana), a pupil of Tito Gobbi. Simultaneously, Canonici's debut LP recital was recorded and published. But Canonici's career wasn't up to the expectations induced by this rather prominent start. He sang for a few years at the Pesaro festival and at theaters like La Scala, Covent Garden or the Vienna Staatsoper, but without great achievements, and it didn't last long. As early as 2004, he was performing in places like Chieti, and got terrible reviews even there.
