Gigli sings "Dalla sua pace" from Mozart Opera Don Giovanni


Beniamino Gigli  (March 20, 1890 - November 30, 1957), was a prominent Italian opera singer in his time, a famous tenor. Considered to be one of the finest tenors in recorded history of music, he was best known for the great beauty of his voice and the soundness of his vocal technique.  He rose to international prominence after the death of the famous Italian tenor Enrico Caruso in 1921.  Although he was often compared to Caruso, they were in fact different in a sense that he was known for his honey-toned lyricism while Caruso had a bigger more "heroic" voice.
