Notes and Editorial Reviews

Alessandro Bonci's repertory was far smaller than that of most of his competitors from the tenor - fach. That is why he may be cited as an ideal example to re-affirm, what today is generally frowned upon: to concentrate upon that repertory of fach, which best matches one's vocal resources and stylistic qualifications, and as a "specialist" to be able to build up a reputation, which, in Bonci's case, at least in his lifetime, could well compare itself with the triumphs of Enrico Caruso.
