Notes and Editorial Reviews

Carlo Galeffi was one of the most renowned Italian baritones of his time, yet his recorded legacy has never been considered as being in the same league as that of many of his contemporaries. Occasionally even disparaging remarks have been made, mainly because the quality of Galeffi's records varies considerably. The present compilation constitutes an attempt to present those records best suited to demonstrate the sheer size as well as the special characteristics of this truly remarkable voice. He was one of Toscanini's favorite baritones and he participated in virtually all the world and first performances of the operas of his time. He was a close friend of Puccini, Mascagni, Pizzetti and many other composers. He also achieved considerable Read more acclaim as a Wagner singer and, in fact, Amfortas was generally considered to be one of his most important roles. Galeffi was, moreover, a superb actor and was a particularly successful Figaro and Gianni Schicchi. Read less
