Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Arrived on time. Condition was as advertised. So nice to have a biography of a man who composed such beautiful melodies, matched to the lyrics (generally written by poets). Hope to see an expansion on this text, as researchers access more information. Specifically, I hope that they locate the one recording that Tosti allegedly made. Although most famous for his composition (almost 400 songs), he was apparently a great tenor and violinist, as well.
