Gaston Baracchini (Tenor)


Probably the performances of his debut were the only occasions in which he performed on stage. Equipped with extended voice and insinuating, he preferred to devote himself to concert career in which he achieved success. He preferred the free life to the artist's life, he performed also in private parties. In 1911 he sued the French manager Abstrae obtaining a compensation of 100,000 francs, a sum much higher.
