In addition to his live performances, Masini made several full-length opera recordings for Deutsche Grammophon, Decca, Philips and Ricordi. His last performances were conducting La forza del destino at Montpellier Opera in early June 1993. He resigned for health reasons shortly thereafter and died in his native city at the age of 55. In 2013, the 20th anniversary of his death, the auditorium at the Achille Peri Conservatory in Reggio Emilia was named in his honour. (en)
