Giuseppe di Stefano (24 July 1921 – 3 March 2008)

The tenor voice most bella of the world? Giuseppe di Stefano became world famous for his beautiful tone and exceptional use of pianissimo and natural elegance of delivery. He sang with impeccable style, pureness and beauty and his secret was just to sing, without gimmickry and artifacts. His timbre and delivery was exceptional, with great personality, but a limited technique ended his short, but brilliant career by the mid 1960s. His admirable "Do Di Petto" was unique in the history of opera, but he sang with an open, uncovered tone that damaged his vocal cords and with the years his sweet and bella timbre had grown coarse and hard, particularly with the assumption of heavier roles not really suited for his vocal range. The abuse provoked his premature disappearance on the opera scene.

    There is a great compilation "The Charming Voice" on CD by Pippo. It is a steal at Amazon. Check it out.

    Come si puo amare la lirica e la musica senza apprezzare Di Stefano.Ero il tenore del mio povero babbo e del mio povero nonno,con le sue arie ho iniziato ad apprezzare la lirica.Che dire.......Grazie Giuseppe e riposa in pace.....La tua voce non morira' mai.
