Leonildo Basi (Baritone)


He had a short career in Italian provincial stages during the 1930’s and probably never performed at La Scala. His name is known to record collectors because he sings the part of the Silvio in ‘’Pagliacci’’ recorded for HMV opposite Adelaide Saraceni and Alessandro Valente.
