Russitano was a singer of great stature. By 1894, he was a leading tenor at the MET with Francesco Tamagno. He was even singing Canio, while Tamagno was singing Turiddu the same evening. So why were his records not published? The main reason seemed to have been a veto by Tamagno.

We must be grateful to the employee of the G&T company who arranged to master, label under the name Guglielmo Pardini and press a small number of copies of the 7inch Esultate.

Russitano taught singing and was one of the Maestro of Picture of Pedro Tero;Pedro Terol (Orihuela, Alicante, October 22 - Madrid, August 19 2003) with Rafael Grani.

I wish to thank Juan Dzazopulos for his help.
