The career of the legendary Swedish tenor Jussi Björling began with performances at the Royal Opera, Stockholm and then in Vienna and Berlin, before his triumphant London début in Verdi's "Il Trovatore". Excerpts from these can be heard in this collection along with Björling's great appearances at the New York "Met" in operas like "Don Carlo", as well as in one of the most demanding of Verdi's tenor roles, that of Riccardo in "Un Ballo in Maschera". Especially interesting is the inclusion in the set of recordings of French and Italian operas that Björling made in Swedish, his mother tongue.
