'Disney Goes Classical' album will be released 2 October, 2020.
A new album evokes all the colour, emotion and pure joy of the Disney universe as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra reimagines 15 classic themes on 'Disney Goes Classical'.
The record encompasses all the Disney eras; from their Golden Age to the '90s renaissance and into the modern era of CGI animation: 'The Jungle Book' and 'Pinocchio' to Alan Menken's inimitable scores from 'Pocahontas', 'The Little Mermaid', 'Aladdin' and 'Hercules'.
Recorded at London's Abbey Road Studios, the album's first single is Matteo Bocelli's rendition of Elton John and Tim Rice's iconic 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight' from 'The Lion King'.
"'The Lion King' is one of the most cherished movies from my childhood and to sing the lead song is truly an honour for me," Matteo says.
"Elton John is one of my musical heroes for both his song-writing skills and his unique style. I hope to take some of that influence into the music I'm currently working on, which I hope to share with you soon."
Four-time Grammy-winning American soprano Renée Fleming also features with her beautiful rendition of 'When You Wish Upon A Star' from Pinocchio.
'Disney Goes Classical' will be released 2 October, 2020.
