SLC Conference, Jussi Bjorling, Opera
Opera has today very little to do with what it was at the time of Jussi. Since its inception, opera was developed based on great singers who delighted audiences, and singing was all that mattered. Thanks to the invention of the gramophone it was possible to preserve and reproduce sounds, and of course, the human voice, so we can now listen to legendary singers of the past.
