Tito Schipa, THE Tenore di Grazia! Without the real money notes in his range, and with a somewhat husky voice, he epitomized all that which matters to his fach; Legato, enunciation and above all: STYLE!!! Ernesto, Nemorino, Ruggiero, Werther... A true artist. His recording of Ernesto is simply stunning!!
