Jussi in Carnegie Hall


Jussi Björling, Carnegie Hall


Carnegie Hall, the legendary concert hall in New York City, celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2016. Jussi Björling appeared there sixteen times during the years 1937-1959. Ten of these performances are recorded at least in part, and released on CD. It was at Carnegie Hall that Jussi made his US debut as a tenor November 28, 1937, an appearance which opened the way for a contract at the Metropolitan and access to the US public.
