Andrea Maggi

Andrea Maggi - a mystery tenor. Certainly one of the most distinguished singers in the early days of the gramophone (his recordings were made in or around 1902), no trace of a career could be found so far, his name doesn't appear anywhere but on his records. It has, thus, already been suggested that Andrea Maggi was just a nom-du-disque of an important tenor of the period, but if so, again, nobody knows of whom. Best Se il mio nome ever.
