Beniamino Gigli in an image from 1914. Gigli left the Met in 1932, ostensibly after refusing to take a pay cut. Giulio Gatti-Casazza, the Met's then general manager, was furious at his company's most popular male singer; he told the press that Gigli was the only singer not to accept the pay cut. There were in fact several others, Lily Pons and Rosa Ponselle among them; and it is well documented that Gatti-Casazza gave himself a large pay increase in 1931, so that after the pay cut in 1932 his salary remained the same as it had been originally.

Beniamino Gigli was born in 1890 in Recanati, in the province of the Marche (Central Italy), as the son of an opera loving shoemaker. In 1914 he won first prize in an international singing contest in Parma and later that year he debuted at the opera of Rovigo. Soon his star rose, thanks to his part in Mefistofele: Palermo (1915), Naples (1915), Rome (1916), Milan (1918) and finally New York (1920) fell for him. After the death of the famous opera tenor Enrico Caruso in 1921, Gigli became even more famous, often nicknamed Caruso Secondo, even of his voice was much sweeter than the dark, heroic.

Beniamino Gigli was a tenor who had the most beautiful voice and his voice should be a bible to all the tenors. True that the recording is old, but it is worth listening from time to time. The mix on the album balances opera & song. He was one of the best interpreters of Neapolitan songs, having a more ringing style than Schipa and a more affectionate style than Corelli; perhaps di Stefano was a natural successor? On several tracks he has magnificent partners (.
