Francesco Paolo Tosti (1846-1916)

The voice of one of the best known singers in the international opera scene, that of bass Michele Pertusi, is certainly the ideal interpreter of the romances by Francesco Paolo Tosti, composer that became famous for his chamber lyrics, as well as the protagonist of the most important artistic salons of the era and singing teacher of Princess Margherita of Savoy. The texts of the romances contained in this full-bodied double CD are all by the great Gabriele D”Annunzio, whom with Tosti formed one of those artistic combinations that are rarely found in the history of music, given the congeniality expressed by the two authors, each giant in his own art. The pianist Raffaele Cortesi, expert connoisseur and performer of the chamber vocal repertoire, shows his elegant and refined style in accompanying Michele Pertusi on the piano.
