Go again Jussi!

These two recordings by Bjorling are not his more expected Italian or French operatic arias. Instead, a Beethoven song and an aria from Lohengrin by Wagner. They display his immaculate control, however, and his ease in lyrical singing across two very different forms. The Wagner piece is lyrical rather than helden tenor in character. His more usual singing is as lyrical but more intense. I will post lots more!

These are old recordings. Adelaide - 1938 in the studio; and In Fernem Land - 1960 live in concert, just weeks before Bjorling died.
