record reviews, Jussi Bjorling Collection, Naxos


A new great CD from Naxos in the JB Collection with careful restorations and transfers by Stefan Lindstrom, whose reproductions include some surface noise but consequently leave more of Jussi Bjorling's voice. Seldom have the old 78s been transferred to CD with such clarity and total balance, always maintaining Jussi Bjorling's voice in absolute focus. Mr. Lindstrom is always faithful to the actual sound of the source, never trying to create anything other than what is on the original recording, thus obtaining a more truthful result.
