Jussi Björling - Jussi Björling Edition: Studio Recordings 1930-1959 album


Size MP3 album: 1101 mb. | Size FLAC album: 1956 mb.

This set tells you why Jussi Bjorling is a perennial entrant in the "Tenor of the Century" sweepstakes. Even as the voice darkens from the light lyric to the full, darker instrument of the later recordings, we hear a singer whose elegant style, lovely timbre and innate musicality touch the heart. Many of the selections are sung in Swedish, less of a liability than you might suppose. The booklet contains well-written music notes, photographs from the time of the recordings and all the lyrics. Truly a magnificent recording that should entertain both expert and novice of Classical music alike.

Your item will be previously owned but still in great condition. The disc will play perfectly without interruption and the case, inlay notes and sleeve may show limited signs of wear. Pre-owned: lowest price.

Tito Schipa’s lyric tenor is perhaps more of an acquired taste and Preiser’s transfers sound less impressive than EMI’s for Björling, what with bass-heavy accompaniments and thin-toned reportage of the solo voice.
