I have never heard anyone else play this piece. Strange... I have always loved it and in some ways it reminds me of A. M. Barrios... It is dedicated to Isaias Savio.
Hope you like it!

Enzo de Muro Lomanto:
Vincenzo de Muro Lomanto descended from a a noble family of the Puglia region. He was born on 11 April 1902 in Canosa di Puglia to Baron de Muro. Lomanto was the family name of his mother, which he added to that of his father. He studied in Naples; first at the university, then at the Conservatorio San Pietro a Majella which, at the beginning of the 20th century boasted one of the most important singing schools of the peninsula. He debuted at the age of 22 (early, as was the custom then) in “La Traviata” at the Teatro Costanzo in Catanzaro. During the 1924/1925 season he already sang in “Tosca” at the San Carlo in Naples. He was held over into the 1925/1926 season and, after participating in “Boris Goudonov”, he sang in a number of roles which were to become his trademarks: The Conte d’Almaviva in “Il Barbiere di Siviglia”, Faust in ” Mefistofele”, Rodolfo in ”La Bohème”, Alfredo in “La Traviata”. In 1927, he performed in Madrid and Budapest. In 1928 he was at La Scala. He debuted as Tonio in “La Figlia del Reggimento” under the direction of Gabriele Santini. Maria was Toti Dal Monte. After her brilliant successes in “Rigoletto”, “Lucia di Lammermoor” and “Il Barbiere di Siviglia”, Toti Dal Monte was on of the most important voices of the Milanese theater, at that time under the command of Arturo Toscanini. According to the tradition, the severe Toscanini, after hearing him sing exclaimed: “He sings like Toti”. Such anecdotes must be taken with a grain of salt. They do have, however, a thread of truth. The voice of Enzo de Muro Lomanto drew attention because of its beauty and appeal. During the same year as the debut at La Scala, Enzo de Muro Lomanto and Toti Dal Monte departed for a tour in Australia, organized by the great soprano, Nellie Melba. Besides having given her name to the famous peach, Melba, born in Richmond, near Melbourne, had been one of the international divas of the Belle-Epoque. The tour brought Enzo and La Toti together and they were married on 28 August of that year. The following year, they returned to La Scala. They performed together in the premier performance of “Re” by Umberto Giordano, in which the tenor sang the part of Colombello. Toti Dal Monte was the star of the new opera. The composer had written the virtuosistic part of Rosalina based upon her vocal capabilities. Unfortunately, due to an indisposition, Toti Dal Monte could only sing the premier. The subsequent performances were by Mercedes Capsir, on of the best coloraturas of the moment and whom De Muro Lomanto had as a partner in the recording of the “Lucia di Lammermoor”. In May of 1929, Enzo de Muro was the delightful Fenton in “Falstaff” which Toscanini took on tour to the Staatsoper of Berlin and Vienna. The year ended with a new tour; this time to Paris, the Theatre des Champs-Elysees. “Il Barbiere di Siviglia”, directed by Tullio Serafin, with Toti Dal Monte as Rosina, Riccardo Stracciari in the title role, Ezio Pinza as Don Basilio and Carlo Scattola as Don Bartolo, was a memorable performance. There were other foreign tours in 1930 and 1931. Decidedly eccentric was the 1931 tour which took the couple to the Philippines, China and Japan. 1932 is the year of their separation. Enzo de Muro Lomanto’s career, which had known three dazzling years, went suddenly into decline. There were already the symptoms of the asthma which would lead to emphysema and his death in 1952 at the age of 50.
In 1933, he was at the Teatro Regio in Torino, engaged in “L’ impresario in Angustie” by Domenico Cimarosa. (More...)
