JBS journal, upcoming issues, Jussi Bjorling


We are now assembling some excellent material for our next issue Journal issue, which concentrates on Jussi Bjorling in Pagliacci and Cavalleria rusticana For instance Harald Henrysson has found reviews of Jussi as Canio in Pagliacci, in all the seasons when he assumed that role in Sweden as well as reviews from Nuremberg and Vienna in 1937. Harald assembles this material to give a vivid picture of our young tenor's assumption of this difficult role, and how his acting matured in the years between 1936 (!) and his last performance in 1955.
