Heartbreak sounds sweet when sung by Giuseppe Filianoti

Italian lyric tenor Giuseppe Filianoti sang music from a bygone world at the final 2012 Harriman-Jewell Series concert Saturday night at the Folly Theater. Filianoti sang a program of music by Richard Strauss, Ottorino Respighi and other verismo period Italian composers whose overarching theme was heartbroken men mourning their deceased wives, muses and loved ones.
