CD, Jussi Bjorling


Yes! We have learned of the unexpected existence of a tape of Jussi's October 15, 1959, concert at The Falconer Center in Copenhagen , with Bertil Bokstedt at the piano. A few of us have heard portions of 5 selections from this concert, "Die Mainacht" (Brahms), "Demanten pa marssnon" (Sibelius), "Ideale" (Tosti) , "Skogen sover" (Alfven), "Come un be! di di maggio" (Giordano: Andrea Chenier) , and they are all beautifully performed. Jussi seems to be in great form, as reviews confirm, and the tape was made well by a resident technician at that house.
