Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Maltese soprano Gillian Zammit studied in Italy with Carlo Bergonzi and Victoria de los Angeles. Zammit is versatile performer with an operatic repertoire that ranges from Baroque to 20th century opera. Here she performs music by Italian composer, Sir Paolo Tosti, who was known for his expressive songs, singable melodies and sweet sentimentality

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
20 charming delights by Italian master song composer Paolo Tosti (1846-1916). The familiar 'Ideale', 'Tristezza, 'Mattinata', and 'Ultimo Bacio' and the less familiar, including five French texts, are here. Two unfamiliar artists from Malta are a delight. Soprano Zammit is all youth, child-like even, with clear diction and a smiling interpretation. Pianist Micallef accompanies her delicately and unobtrusively.
