Biography

Born: May 21, 1909; Turrita di Siena   Died: April 21, 1958; Rome, Italy  
While Neri rarely appeared outside his native Italy and made relatively few recordings, he was nonetheless one of the more important bassi cantanti of his generation; for many (including Tito Gobbi), his Grand Inquisitor in Verdi's Don Carlo defined the role, and his Gounod Mephistopheles was also greatly admired.

His career was cut short by his relatively early death. Read less
