Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Björling was sadly underused as a concert singer; recordings of renowned recitals such as here offer glimpses of his musicianship even in unfamiliar territory …. Included (also) are extracts taken from his two most successful complete opera recordings: Manon Lescaut and Il Trovatore, as well as his famous Pearl Fishers’ Duet : after many decades they are considered benchmark performances.” (James Murray) “Björling was sadly underused as a concert singer; recordings of renowned recitals such as here offer glimpses of his musicianship even in unfamiliar territory ….
