Stephen Hastings

"Naxos has gathered all the recordings of opera and operetta sung in the Swedish language between 1930 and 1938 in the first volume of Jussi Bjorling Collection...offered with even more immediacy in the sound, as reproduced by Hans Tradgardh and Stefan Lindstrom. And even if it doesn't attract you to listen to Puccini, Borodin, Johann Strauss and Offenbach sung in Swedish by a very young tenor, I invite you to try this disc because it contains recordings which Bjorling never re-recorded later...these first recordings have a unique charm...musicality that conquers the listener no matter what he sings. Moreover, the voice has beautiful freshness, so effortless and clear that it must have completely amazed the fortunate spectators at the Opera of Stockholm...His voice had already an almost perfect technique which enabled him to confront any difficulty and an absolutely natural articulation.

"This CD is to be commended as an excellent restoration of old recordings that would otherwise probably be lost to the world at large. It should make a fascinating addition to anyone interested in the history of performance singing, and the superb voice of Jussi Bjorling as it was in his day."

"This Naxos release is very welcome indeed, for its attractive budget price and especially since its title suggests a complete edition."
