Skansen, Jussi Bjorling, En Minnesbok


Jussi Bjorling sang for the first time at Skansen on the 15th September 19351. I retain vivid memories of the deep impression he made even then on me and the large audience.

And he returned. Actually, it became a tradition that he came to us at least once each year. In all, he appeared here fifty-three times, sometimes with the Royal Orchestra, but mostly in solo recital, including three times with his wife Anna-Lisa. The public attendance was usually overwhelming, and there were some who arrived as early as 10 o'clock in the morning in order to secure a place.
