Alessandro Bonci - The Fonotipia recordings 1905-1907

Alessandro Bonci was active at the end of the 19th century, a period euphemistically referred to as the ‘Golden Age’. He belonged to a distinguished group of tenori di grazia, held to be the epitome of the ‘Bel Canto’ style of singing, which included Fernando De Lucia, Giuseppe Anselmi, Fernando Carpi, Giuseppe Krismer, Carlo Dani, Manfredi Polverosi and Elvino Ventura. For both audiences and singers of this generation priority was given to elegance of declamation combined with an ease of vocal emission and fine control of dynamics.
