“Giuseppe Anselmi studied with conductor Luigi Mancinelli and made his Italian operatic début in Genoa, 1900. He appeared with success at Covent Garden and was a matinee idol in Russia, South America, and Spain, where he appeared in the major lyric tenor roles. His career was rather short. By 1918 he had retired. From 1907 to 1911, Anselmi had been a frequent visitor to the Fonotipia studios. Edison had reviewed several of these records, decided to record him, and eight recordings were made, with two takes of each. Six were published and two were withheld. He then spent his time teaching and composing, and he died 29 May 1929, near Rapallo, Italy.”
