About this Recording

GIGLI, Beniamino: Gigli Edition, Vol. 14: London, Milan and Rio de Janeiro Recordings (1949, 1951)

By the time the tracks on this penultimate volume of The Naxos Gigli Edition were cut, Gigli had been singing professionally for thirty-five years. He continued his activity, both in the opera house and in concert tours well into his sixties, unstinting in the generous outpouring of his art. This fourteenth volume, comprising opera arias, arie antiche and songs, also includes all of Gigli’s 1951 duet recordings with his daughter Rina, as well as the four highly elusive sides he recorded in Rio de Janiero the same year. The appendix presents the recently discovered 1931 side of the second half of the Cavalleria duet with Dusolina Giannini.
