Italian composer Franceso Paolo Tosti (1846-1916) wrote more than 350 songs, among which were favorites of famous singers, from Caruso and Tetrazzini in his day to Pavarotti and Carreras in ours. With a direct and simple grace and sensual Italianate vocal lines, his works were in some ways an art music reply to the Neapolitan folk tradition.
