tenor, David Bjorling, Jussi Bjorling
He was probably seventeen years old when I first met him. To me he seemed to be- if I may use the expression- a male Pallas Athena, she who sprang fully armed from her father's head. Jussi, too, materialized fully armed from his father's head. David Bjorling is said to have once said about his son: "There will never be another tenor like Caruso - perhaps Jussi."
