ROLANDO PANERAI (b. 1914) is an Italian baritone who is especially associated with the Italian repertory. He studied with Frazzi in Florence and Armani and Giulia Tess in Milan. Even though he has more than 150 operas in his repertory, he is most known for comic roles: Ford in Falstaff, Gianni Schicchi, Figaro in Nozze di Figaro, Leporello in Don Giovanni, and both Guglielmo and Alfonso in Cosi fan tutte, Figaro in II barbiere di Siviglia, both Belcore and Dulcamara in Elisir d'amore, and the title role in Don Pasquale. He was an exponent of Gianni Schicchi by Giacomo Puccini for several years, singing the role in Genova as recently as 2011, at the age of 87. MARIO RINAUDO (b. 1936) is an Italian operatic bass who has performed in several important operas; however he has expressed that he especially enjoyed La Forza del Destino, by Verdi. NELSON PORTELLA is a Brazilian baritone who has performed in many important operas. SIEGMUND NIMSGERN(b. 1940) is a German bass-baritone. He made his debut at the Saarländisches Staatstheater in Saarbrücken in 1967. In 1971, he went to the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Düsseldorf and Duisburg. From there, he began his international career as an opera singer. Siegmund sang at La Scala in Milan, Covent Garden in London, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and the Vienna State Opera. He has recorded numerous operas including "Der Vampyr", "Schwanda the Bagpiper", "Martha", "Hansel and Gretel", and a 1989 Grammy Award-winning recording of "Lohengrin". CARLOS PIZZINI (1905-1981) studied composition with Ottorino Respighi and graduated from the Bologna Conservatory in 1929. Being only nineteen years old, he founded the Concerts for the musical education of students in Rome, with support from the Ministry of Education. From 1932 to 1937 he was a Music Inspector for the Italian Authors' and Publishers' Society, which made him an honorary distinguished member in 1954. From 1938 to 1970 Pizzini held an executive position at Italian Radio and Television. The Accademia of Santa Cecilia, the famous musical society and concert organization in Rome, elected Carlos Pizzini to its ranks in 1942, and he served as its Vice President from 1973 for the rest of his life. In 1967 Pizzini was elected to the Philharmonic Academy of Bologna, an honor he expressed was especially important to him because two centuries earlier the Bologna Society had conferred the same distinction on Mozart. He represented RAI and the Accademia of Santa Cecilia on the juries of prestigious international competitions and at the Council of Europe in Strasboourg. As a conductor, he gave concerts all over the world, usually featuring his own compositions. Pizzini wrote in almost every form, from chamber music through music for choir, orchestra and a band to incidental music for theatre, television and films.ANGEL MATTIELLO (1913-1992) was an Italian who at a very young age moved to Argentina, where he received his training at the Instituto Superior de Arte del Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires under the direction of teachers Edytha Fleischer, Luis La Via and Juan Emilio Martini. In 1939 he made his debut under the name Ricardo Maciel in Buenos Aires in a small role in Elektra by Richard Strauss under the direction of Erich Kleiber. Angel became a naturalized Argentine and essentially completed his career in that country, having great successes and being considered as one of the most important Argentine singers of his generation. For more than thirty years, until 1978, he worked as first baritone at the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, where he appeared in several first performances and premieres: in 1949 in Die Frau ohne Schatten by R. Strauss (as Geisterbote), in 1953 in Cristobal Colon (as Christophe Colomb) by Darius Milhaud, in 1954 in The Rape of Lucretia by Benjamin Britten (as Junius), in 1954 in II Prigioniero by Luigi Dallapiccola (in the title role), in 1959 in Igor Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress (as Nick Shadow), in 1968 in Giulio Cesare by Georg Frideric Handel (as Aquilas), in 1970 in Moses und Aron by Arnold Schoenberg (as Moses). In 1964 he took part there in the premiere of the opera Don Rodrigo by Alberto Ginastera. NICOLA MORTINUCCI is an Italian tenor who has sung under the baton of some of the greatest conductors, including Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Chailly, Myung-Whun Chung, Sir Colin Davis, Lorin Maazel, Riccardo Muti, Nello Santi and Giuseppe Sinopoli. Nicola has sung most of the standard Italian repertoire roles, especially Verdi (Radames in Aida), Puccini (Calaf in Turandot, Luigi in II Tabarro) and verismo (Canio in Pagliacci). His lyrico-dramatic Italianate sound, coupled with his similar repertory, dark Mediterranean looks and bearded appearance, have led many into seeing him as a possible successor to the late Luciano Pavarotti. His repertoire also includes the roles of Cavaradossi, Pinkerton, Marat in Mascagni's II piccolo Marat, and Salvatore Giuliano in Lorenzo Ferrero's Salvatore Giuliano. ENZO SORDELLO (1927-2008) was an Italian operatic baritone who studied at the Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi in Turin and privately with Carlo Tagliabue. In 1952 he won the International Competition organized by the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, and began appearing there in small roles. He first won recognition when he sang the role of Cinno in Spontini's La vestale, opposite Maria Callas, in a production by Luchino Visconti. Enzo made his Metropolitan Opera debut in 1956 as Marcello in La boheme, followed by Malatesta in Don Pasquale. He also sang Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor, opposite Maria Callas, who is said to have ordered to fire him after the performance for holding a note longer than hers. He went on singing at most of the major opera houses of the world and retired in 1982. Lightly toned and worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
