Sarah Brightman approached Andrea Bocelli after hearing him singing “Con te partirò” when she was having dinner in a restaurant. They later re-recorded “Con te partirò” changing the lyrics to “Time To Say Goodbye” performing it as a duet with members of the London Symphony Orchestra.
The next two videos showcase their performance from 2007 and the original duet from 1996. This first one was performed live at the Teatro Del Silenzio in Italy in 2007. Their voices are sensational!
This wasn’t the first time these brilliant singers had performed together. Back in November 1996 they sang the same rendition of ‘Time To Say Goodbye’. They were invited to perform the duet ‘Time To Say Goodbye (Con Te Partirò)’ at the farewell contest of the German World Light-Heavyweight boxing champion, Henry Maske. Watch their performance in the video below.
