Jussi Bjorling, Carnegie Hall Recital
Sound provokes emotion. We are alarmed at a car’s screeching brakes; calmed by a cat’s rhythmic purr. It’s difficult to determine whether these are intuitive or learned responses; yet to many the voice of an opera singer evokes alarm. Yet the amber tones of Jussi Björling’s warm embrace only alarms with its natural beauty.
