  Tito Schipa (Grandi Tenori.com)
Raffaele Attilio Amadeo Schipa - Tito - was born in Lecce at the end of 1888, although the birth records show the date 2 January 1889.
In 1908, when Schipa was 19, Gerunda presented the aspiring tenor in a benefit recital that raised money for a trip to Milano, where Schipa were to seek the possible launch of his career.
Schipa had no grand voice nor exceptional beauty, it was rather the manner in which he employed it that captivated the audiences.

 The tenor Tito Schipa and Tango
"Tito Schipa was no longer a foreign artist on the very moment he stepped on our land, and he needed little to adopt Spanish American ways and to feel tango as it had been conceived.
In his visits to our country in the years 1930, 1931 and 1934, Schipa, besides carrying out very busy lyrical seasons, recorded six tangos which were received with approval by tango followers, these are: "La cumparsita", "Confesión", "Dónde estás corazón", "Tinieblas", "Dímelo al oído" y "Vida mía".
"Tito Schipa is undoubtedly the tenor most popular in all Latin America and his records sung in Spanish are among the preferred ones by all audiences due to his clear diction and the faithful interpretation he unfolds in the popular romanzas".

 Tito Schipa at AllExperts
The Italian tenor Tito Schipa (1888 – 16 December 1965) is considered one of the finest tenore di grazia (lyric tenors) in operatic history.
Schipa was born Raffaele Attilio Amedeo Schipa in Lecce in late 1888.
Schipa made numerous recordings during his career, including a famous recording of Donizetti's Don Pasquale in 1932, which was one of the first complete opera recordings, and is still in circulation.

 Nimbus Records, Prima Voce, NI 7870, Tito Schipa, in Song - Booklet Note
He was not capable of enormous levels of volume, and rather than be tempted to force his tone (as is so often the case with smaller voiced tenors) he mastered the art of projection.
Schipa was born in Lecce, southern Italy, at the very end of 1888.
As Harold Schonberg wrote of the occasion: "No sooner did Schipa close his mouth after ending a selection, than a roar went up as if he had orbited six times, detoured to the moon, landed and come back to earth." His voice had little now to offer, but his style was still much admired.

 Tito Schipa
Schipa made his debut in Vercelli in Traviata in 1911 and a few months later appeared in Milan in Tosca: this was the beginning of one of the greatest and best-loved tenors in the entire history of Opera.
He retired from the stage in 1958 to teach first in Budapest and then in New York, where he was persuaded to undertake one final tour in 1964, when he was 75 years old.
Unquestionably one of the finest light-lyrical tenors of the century and onoe of the greatest singers in the entire history of opera.

 (Tito Schipa)
This delightful two-CD set of Tito Schipa’s complete Victor recordings from 1922 to 1925 presents the inimitable art of the great “tenore di grazia” when he was at his peak.
Schipa sang at the Metropolitan Opera and the Chicago Lyric Opera where he performed from 1919 to 1932.
Schipa very wisely restricted himself to a limited repertoire, staying within the “tenore leggiero” fach but also performing a wealth of Spanish and Neapolitan songs which judging from these beautiful performances were balm to his voice.

 Tito Schipa: Recital Music
Schipa himself had a hand in creating or arranging several of the songs.
He eventually discovered that Schipa's luggage contained orchestral parts for the opera transposed down a tone.
Shipa arranged secretly for the transposed parts to be substituted, resulting in the ageing Schipa coping well with the tenor part but the youthful Gobbi being forced to growl his low notes.

 Tito Schipa Malibran MR 551 [JW]: Classical CD Reviews- June 2004 MusicWeb(UK)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Schipa’s early recordings have been covered fairly well over the last few years but Malibran concentrates on three sets of sessions made for Pathé — Milan in 1916 and 1919 and New York in 1921.
He was at his most commanding and declamatory in these early sides and Pathé recorded him with fidelity and immediacy; whereas the accompaniments tend to be submerged, the voice rings out bell-like and true — not so good for matters of balance but fine for Schipa lovers.
Schipa here, early in his career, seems to have something in reserve and those used to more flamboyant fare from lesser artists may find him wanting.

Ah, Tito Schipa, the ideal that most modern opera performers aspire to has been dead since 1965.
He sang schmaltz without being schmaltzy, sang big, pompous songs with such tenderness and off-key frailty that made the songs everyone's, and not just the classics-loving rich and powerful.
This CD covers most of his best, from Tosti's lively 'A vucchella' (Give me a little kiss, a whole chain of them/then steal one for yourself) to De Curtis's poignant love song 'Tu, can nun chiagne!' (You who don't cry, are making me cry/but all the same, it's you I want).

As I've said elsewhere, Schipa was never known for the power of his voice or high notes, but rather for the beautiful color of his voice, clear diction, subtle but passionate expression, and a refined technique.
Even on this ancient 78rpm recording Schipa's greatness is readily apparent.I believe he was one of the greatest light,lyric tenors of any era.He had superb technique,seamless legato and a sweet timbre.His voice was small but so well projected and controlled,it didn't matter in the repetoire he sang.He had a unique quality.Grazie mille for posting this.
