Mario Gilion (1870-1914) joins forces with baritone Francesco Maria Monini (1865-1930) for an excerpt from Act I of Verdi's Il Trovatore. The performance begins with Count di Luna's "Tace la notte" and includes Manrico's offstage serenade, "Deserto sulla terra". This was recorded in Milan for Fonotipia in 1906.
