Freddie De Tommaso’s ‘Il Tenore’ Album Tops Charts, Outstreams Pavarotti

By David Salazar

Freddie De Tommaso’s new album “Il Tenore” is topping the classical music charts.

The album has topped the Classical Artist Chart and the Classical Specialist Chart, marking the second time that the tenor has accomplished said feat (his 2021 album “Passione” had similar success). Per an official press statement, De Tommaso’s rendition of “Nessun Dorma” has close to 1 million streams in just seven weeks and is outstreaming Luciano Pavarotti’s reference recording of the iconic aria for Decca.

“I am delighted that Il Tenore is number 1 in the classical charts on its opening week. It was such a pleasure to record this collection of arias and duets with my dear friends, Lise, Aigul and Natalya, and I am so glad that the public are enjoying them. Thank you to everyone for listening,” the tenor stated in an official statement.

“Huge congratulations to Freddie on his brilliant, second number 1 classical album,” added Tom Lewis and Laura Monks, the Co-Presidents of Decca Label Group. “What differentiates him from his peers is the rate at which this album has been streaming around the world. It has got off to a flying start, particularly his recording of the iconic ‘Nessun Dorma’. Opera doesn’t usually stream like this! Freddie’s star looks set to shine so very brightly.”
