The Avid Listener


interview, radio, recordings


During an email exchange, I encountered a link to a Charlie Rose interview with Eileen Farrell, whose inflection when pronouncing the name of “Jussi Björling” was indicative of her impression and respect (https://www. youtube.com/watch?v=xwwwK-MNdNI). It was even more specifically spelled out in Brian Kellow’s (Farrell) biography where she says, I was in awe of Björling—I would get so caught up listening to the gorgeous sounds that came out of his throat that I would forget to sing!
