“Time to Say Goodbye” is a song from the albums, “Timeless” (in Europe) and “TIme to Say Goodbye” (in N. America), by English soprano and classical-crossover artist Sarah Brightman and Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. The song itself is a cover version of the original 1995 recording “Con te partirò” by Andrea Bocelli, released as a single and included on his album, “Bocelli, Romanza”.
The Brightman-Bocelli release was a huge success throughout Europe, reaching #1 in Germany and several other countries.
This live version is from Brightman’s first full concert recording, “Sarah Brightman: In Concert”, from London’s Royal Albert Hall with the London Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Paul Bateman. Guest artists include Andrew Lloyd Webber, Adam Clark and Andrea Bocelli. The concert was released to video in 1998.
The concert was directed by David Mallet.
