Emanuele Angeletti recently answered a few questions about his career and Macca The Concert: Celebrating the Music of Paul McCartney.
Q: When did you first become interested in the music of The Beatles and Paul McCartney?
Emanuele: Well, my father is a musician and when I was a kid he received a gift from the Italian EMI company for a work that he did. The gift was a complete Beatles record collection so I grew up with all their songs at home. During the 80s in Italy there was a TV show called ‘Discoring’ and the opening theme was Ebony and Ivory, the McCartney solo version. I was shocked. Just years later I found out that it was originally a duet with Stevie Wonder, what a surprise!!
Q: For you, what is it about McCartney, that makes him stand out as a musician, singer and songwriter?
Emanuele: He plays bass with beautiful melodies, not like a usual bass player. His songwriting is so varied, he can write ballads, proper pop songs, Rock ‘n’ roll…. a lot of musical genres and of course his voice. All of these ingredients makes a proper Macca sound. His style.
Q: What would be your top three McCartney songs?
Emanuele: The Long and Winding Road, Maybe I’m Amazed, Hey Jude.
Q: What are your favourite Wings songs?
Emanuele: Band on the run because it has 3 different musical sections and every one is beautiful.
Q: What can you tell us about this production?
Emanuele: We like to tell his career with his songs. ‘Macca’ covers every period of Paul’s musical life. Beatles, Wings and solo stuff. We think that’s the best way to do it!
Q: Why should everyone get along to see the show?
Emanuele: Because tickets costs less than the original one 🙂
“The brilliant Emanuele Angeletti. From the cheeky smiles to the foot tapping and nods to the audience, his interpretation of Paul is quite simply perfect. Along with the accompanying vocals of a captive audience, this moment defined Angeletti as one of the best, if not the best, musician to have performed as McCartney.” (The low down magazine – Liverpool)
