Notes and Editorial Reviews

World famous tenor Jussi Björling never let success go to his head. He preferred sitting on a bridge with a fishing rod in his hand.

Despite his enormous success, in many ways he remained a shy boy. He sacrificed his health and maybe even his life for the sake of the music.

This definitive film biography includes testimony by Jussi’s children Anders, Lars, Ann-Charlotte (with much attention to their time together at Siarö) and his cousin Märta; former co-stars Kerstin Meyer, Kjerstin Dellert, Aase Nordmo-Løvberg; experts like Stefan Johansson and Harald Henrysson.

Directed by Torbjörn Lindqvist; Written By Torbjörn Lindqvist, Christer Eklund.

 The wonderful voice o fJussi Bjorling November 27, 2013 By Tony Price (Wadalba, New South Wales) See All My Reviews "I have been an admirer of Jussi Bjorling since 1954 when I first heard his wonderful voice on a programme in Sydney Australia titled World Famous Tenors. While I was only 15 years of age at the time Bjorling inspired me to have my voice trained when I turned 18 years and after years of studying I eventually sang a a tenor and had a career up until I turned 70. I have owe Jussi Bjorling a tremendous amount of gratitude for a life in music. sincerely Tony Price" Report Abuse
