During this year’s Academy Awards, the In Memoriam segment had a surprise duet by Andrea Bocelli and his son Matteo Bocelli.

The pair performed Time To Say Goodbye, one of the best-selling singles of all time for the Italian maestro, who originally recorded the track with Sarah Brightman almost 30 years ago.

On the 2024 Oscars version, which has since been released, Andrea said: “It is the song of my life, it is the melody that represents me in the eyes of the world: reinventing it, thanks to the collaboration with Hans Zimmer, and singing it together with my son Matteo, represents an exciting challenge.

“It will be a new debut (and it is part of a larger upcoming project), and I am happy that it will take place on the same Oscar stage that already hosted me in ’99 together with my friend Céline Dion.”

Matteo Bocelli commented: “Time to Say Goodbye is more than a song to me, it’s my family’s national anthem, it’s the soundtrack to hundreds of memories. Singing it with my father in a new orchestration is a great honour, and to sing it on the Oscars stage is simply a dream come true!” 

Hans Zimmer added: “It was an honour and a thrilling challenge to find a new musical perspective on a masterpiece; and to provide a cinematic landscape to two of the greatest voices in the world.”
