Linda Cannetti (Soprano (Verona 1878 – Milan 1960)




She studied with Melchiorre Vidal in Vienna and made her debut at Fossombrone in Faust in 1899. Later that year she sang in Lohengrin with the tenor Francesco Bravi, whom she subsequently married. His early death brought her career to a temporary halt, but on its resumption in 1909 she achieved her greatest success to date as Chrysothemis in the Italian premiære of Elektra, at La Scala. In 1913 she appeared in another Richard Strauss premiære in Italy, that of Feuersnot, and at Turin sang the title role in the world premiære of Riccardo Zandonai's Francesca da Rimini (1914). Other notable events included commemorative performances of Boito's Mefistofele under Arturo Toscanini and a personal triumph in Buenos Aires in Italo Montemezzi's L’amore dei tre re. She retired in 1928. Her recordings show warmth of voice and emotion, with a quick, somewhat uneven vibrato, probably more acceptable then than it is now.
