This is really a great recording of one of Verdi's most popular operas. The Swedish and Norwegian cast is really formidable. Jussi Bjorling's Duke is as good as ever. His characterization is even better than on the Naxos release of the Met performance. He gives more of a carefree, womanizing, arrogant man who makes love to women and then throws them away. His interpretation here takes more advantage of his experience, and it certainly helps to be on home turf too. Erik Sundqvist's Rigoletto does remind me of the great Leonard Warren. He doesn't quite prosess Warren's great characteristic voice that makes his Rigolettos so magnificent, but the characterization is similar. Sundqvist does posses a great voice that is ideally suited for the jester. He does also live the role on the stage. Eva Prytz's Gilda came as a revelation here. She is probably the most beautifully voiced Gilda on record. The Norwegian soprano is so really great throughout the opera. She sings 'Caro nome' so wonderfully. Full of the coloratura the role requires. She sings very excitingly in the great quartet in act 3, soaring over the other three. Her characterization is really good as the sweet innocent young woman who sacrifices herself because she loves the Duke.
The conducting is also very good. Bendix is very senstive to the score and the drama, delivering very exciting orchestral sounds when called for and very soft when called for, e.g. in the scenes with Rigoletto and Gilda.
Something that was even more as a surprise than the glorious Gilda of Prytz is the sound. This is a live broadcast from Stockholm in January 1957. The sound of this broadcast is really exceptionally good. It is in stereo and everyone at all times is very clearly heard.

Generally very good performances and nice to listen to but I was quite surprised that there is the occasional jump as you would get on a record or CD.
