Derek Lim
The Flying Inkpot

"Bj”rling's Nedda is his Mimi in La Boheme, the equally beautiful Victoria de los Angeles. Bj”rling and de los Angeles make good foils against each other -- they are both accomplished singers and have clear, lovely voices, something that perhaps works to their disadvantage in playing such unlovely characters.

[This performance] is without not its merits, namely the gorgeous singing from the principals (you won't hear it sung better). Others will have had this in their collection for a long time in the EMI release; be assured that this transfer by Mark Obert-Thorne is miles ahead of the EMI which was distorted in many places, truly a labour of love. You will want to replace your copy."
