Stephen Hastings
Musica, February 2004

"The voice of the eighteen year old Jussi Bjorling had the perfect technique of a veteran and combined it with the naivety of a boy who confronts the world with innocence and makes certain experiences for the first time. The remastering of this anthology - made by Stefan Lindstrom - made from the original 78`s also in this case results in a great immediacy...variety of music and the interpreter really starts to make his personality come through. Naxos offer exemplary liner notes by the maximum Bjorling expert on the international level; Harald Henrysson, curator of the museum dedicated to the tenor at Borlange in Sweden, and author of an excellent Jussi Bjorling phonography published in 1993."



Henry Fogel
Fanfare, June 2003

"This collection of lighter songs, originally in a variety of languages but all sung in Swedish, is an example of the performer lifting the material out of the league of the ordinary...as sung by Bjorling, everything sounds like a masterpiece. He lavishes scrupulous musicianship and that golden timbre on everything-neither applying too much seriousness to the material nor kitching it up. In a couple of these songs, he floats some pianos that will take your breath away...There is not a single track here that doesn't represent the art of singing at its highest level...Naxos's budget-priced reissue of these records is to be welcomed."
