Notes and Editorial Reviews

Dino Borgioli was born into the tenor generation of Beniamino Gigli and Tito Schipa. During his career and even more so after his death, Borgioli's art has remained in the shadow of both singers. The timbre of his voice comes closer to Schipa's than Gigli's. It was a bright, silvery voice with a slightly nasal tone, but it was clearer than Schipa's. As a thorough musician he not only laid a strong emphasis on phrasing, but also on vocal dynamics: one just has to listen to his refined shadings between forte and mezzo forte or piano and pianissimo. He was a good actor and looked good on stage. All his recordings were made for Columbia, among whose exclusive artists he was. His earliest recordings date from 1920. After the introduction of the Read more electric recording system, at the Columbia studios in 1926, he re-recorded several items and added new ones. Read less
