Dusolina Giannini (1902 - 1982)

Dusolina Giannini was born into an extremely musical family. Her father, Ferruccio Giannini, was an operatic tenor who had sung with Patti and had emigrated to the USA when he was seventeen years old; her mother Antonietta Briglia-Giannini was a fine violinist; her brother Vittorio a distinguished composer, and her sister Euphemia taught singing at Curtis Institute. When only twelve years old, Dusolina sang La Cieca / La Gioconda in her father’s small opera company, followed by Azucena / Il trovatore. She was heard by the Polish soprano Marcella Sembrich who foresaw considerable potential and took her on as a pupil in New York.

After four years of study, Giannini was suggested by Sembrich as substitute for the soprano Anna Case in a 1923 concert at Carnegie Hall. Her singing won high critical praise and many offers of work quickly followed. She sang in concerts in the USA, including the New York Philharmonic with Bruno Walter, and in London during 1924; undertook tours of the USA, Canada and Cuba during 1924–1925 and appeared in concert in Berlin in 1925.
