’O Sole Mio translates literally as "my sunshine", and its beautiful tune paints a sublime portrait of love and its affectations. The story of how this humble Neapolitan song became globally famous begins during the 1920 Olympic Games in Antwerp, Belgium. As the conductor of the band takes to the podium, he realizes he has misplaced the music to the Royal March - the national anthem of Italy - and instead strikes up 'O Sole Mio. After an initial moment of confusion, the crowd responds enthusiastically and the song became for Italy an iconic staple. Inspired by the rich qualities and voice-range of the famous Three Tenors, this arrangement features the lyrical colors of the lower string quartet voices - the viola and cello. Their sonorous timbre provides a warm contrast to the violins’ lofty upper registers. Featured in Apollo's album, 'EUROPEAN FOLKSCAPES,' available on Navona
