Beniamino Gigli

Beniamino Gigli (March 20, 1890 – November 30, 1957) was an Italian opera singer. The most famous tenor of his generation, he was renowned internationally for the great beauty of his voice and the soundness of his vocal technique. Music critics sometimes took him to task for what was perceived to be the over-emotionalism of his interpretations, nevertheless, such was Gigli's talent, he is considered to be one of the very finest tenors in the recorded history of music.
