Kim Borg (1919-2000), born in Helsinki, was almost put off singing by a bad teacher and went into engineering, but persisted in voice training with Adelaide von Skilondz in Stockholm and Magnus Andersen in Copenhagen. He made his recital début in 1947 and after singing Colline with the Aarhus company, portrayed Gremin in Eugene Onégin with success in Copenhagen in 1952. He made many recordings, including Boris Godunov, opera sets, recitals of arias, the Verdi Requiem (twice), the Dvořák Requiem, The Dream of Gerontius, Mussorgsky songs in his own orchestrations, songs by other Russian composers, Kilpinen and Sibelius – and some by himself. He made his début at the Met in New York in 1959 and sang both bass and baritone parts all over Europe.
