Tito Schipa in Neapolitan Song 1925 -1938


"Style - this surely is the first word which we connect with the artistry of Tito Schipa; and in the selection of songs presented on this particular CD I find it fascinating to observe how this master stylist approaches the 'popular' end of his repertoire with the same refinement which he always brought to his 'serious' singing, but without losing any of the uncomplicated charm which endows these numbers with their immediate appeal."
