�Gilion supposedly began his career as a baritone, then made his tenor d�but in 1901 at the Teatro Sociale in Monza as Vasco in L�AFRICAINE. That same year, Gilion appeared in Modena singing Raoul in LES HUGUENOTS and Arnold in WILLIAM TELL, his two most prominent roles. He also sang in Budapest, Warsaw, Venice, and Buenos Aires. Gilion appeared at the Paris Op�ra in 1910 as Arnold, and the next year as Radames. He recorded exclusively for Fonotipia singing primarily in Italian. His sides sung in French are unquestionably his rarest records"
