It is theoretically possible that there might be a Bettini cylinder of
Italo Campanini (1845-1896) as it is that there might be one of Gayarre
(1844-1890), but I've never heard more than speculation about such a
recording. The best source of information would surely be Christian
Zwarg of Truesound Transfers. His CD of Bettini cylinders (number 1901)
includes recordings as early as 1897 so no Campanini.
