JUSSI BJORLING

The Swedish Caruso

This 10-CD set features performances by the great 20th century Swedish tenor Jussi Björling, and includes recordings that range from early productions made in 1929 up to one of his final concerts in April 1959.

Alongside his Italian colleague Enrico Caruso, the Swedish tenor Jussi Björling stands out from the other important singers of the 20th century. In addition to performing songs from his home country, Björling also excelled on Swedish versions of the great tenor arias from Italian and French repertoire. Among the gems in this collection are exceptional performances of German Lieder recorded by Björling in 1939 with pianist Harry Ebert, as well as a performance of the Verdi Requiem under Toscanini and the legendary 1956 recording of La Bohème conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham.
