The new video shows Matteo unleashing his full operatic voice with no microphone, just his natural vocals. As if that wasn’t enough, his ‘backing band’ is a couple of classical music superstars. Andrea accompanies him on the piano with Stjepan Hauser on the cello. Meanwhile Italian pop superstar Eros Ramazzotti is on filming duties. Its an extarordinary moment but is this also our first glipse of the young rising star’s new material for his upcoming album?
Matteo tagged the incredible video: Yesterday night we celebrated with the family the end of a special journey with some friends @hausercello @2cellosofficial @ramazzotti_eros and @andreabocelliofficial …”
But what exactly was that special journey? Fans will be hoping it is the recording of the 23-year-old’s first solo music.
He has already duetted with Andrea on the song Fall On Me, and they have toured the world together, but this will be the first time Matteo officially strikes out on his own.
Stjepan is one half of pop-classical crossover duo 2CELLOS with Luka Šulić. He may not be quite as well known by the general public as Andrea and Matteo, but his 2.7million Instagram followers are more than the Italian father and son combined!
Not that there was any competition on display at all on this occasion.
It was a rather mind-blowing casual evening with some of the world’s greatest musicians united in harmony, creating a moment of true beauty.
This is just the latest post from Matteo showing his talents.
Previously he has also posted videos of himself singing a Justin Bieber hit at the keyboards, as well as a series of teases in recording studios for his debut album.
It started back in October 2019, Matteo wrote: “When you have the chance to spend some time in an amazing studio with some incredibly talented songwriters from all over the world you can only say… grazie… Sessions, sessions, and more sessions to make a #newrecord.”
On February 6 this year, he celebrated the anniversary of his appearance at the San Remo Festival: “That moment marked the beginning of an intense creative journey – I can’t wait to share my music with you soon.”
And then on February 23 he posted: “Today in studio recording a special surprise #neverstopexploring”.
Has Matteo been working with Andrea and 2CELLOS on his album? Everyone (including Matteo) seems to be hoping for one superstar collaboration in particular.

Andrea Bocelli’s stunning duet with Ed Sheeran on the Brit star’s own Perfect Symphony in December 2017 came about thanks to Matteo’s own love for the singer.
Matteo said: “I have many favourite singers. But, of course, I’ve always been attracted by the voice of Ed Sheeran. I’ve followed him since the very beginning of his career. One day it would be amazing to do [a collaboration with him].
“I had the chance to meet him and he’s a fantastic person. So humble…that’s another thing that really impressed me. So who knows? I hope in the future!”
