vocal technique, Jussi Bjorling recordings
When I first heard recordings of Jussi Bjorling, I was struck by the brightness of his voice, the beauty of his sound, and the brilliance of his high notes. He surpassed all the tenors I had heard on records except Enrico Caruso. When I saw Bjorling live, I became aware of another advantage he had over other singers: his voice was produced effortlessly, as if it floated outside and above him. Bjorling's technique became the standard I used to judge other singers. It also led me to analyze singing technique and style.
