Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The Sibelius Violin Concerto joins those of Beethoven and Brahms at the pinnacle of Romanticism's achievements in this form, and Jascha Heifetz is an ideal interpreter of its lyricism and sheer technical dazzle. The fireworks-filled Prokofiev and the gentler Glazunov fill out the bargain-priced disc agreeably. This is Prokofiev's Second Violin Concerto; Heifetz never recorded the equally brilliant No. 1, and (though adequately recorded by many violinists) it is slightly less familiar as a result. --Joe McLellan

5.0 out of 5 stars The Greatest Tenor of Them All October 18, 2012
Verified Purchase
I was in the Choral Club at my high school. One day a fellow member told me about a recording of the greatest voice he had ever heard. It was, of course, Jussi Bjoerling. Many years later, now a huge fan of the great tenor, I had the privilege of having dinner with the great American Metropolitan Opera Baritone Robert Merrill. I asked him, what was the greatest voice of his career? He said, "I was recording in Rome with Bjoerling and we went out to eat after the session. We were at a table outside in the courtyard and, after dinner, Jussi stood up and sang and it was the most beautiful sound I had ever heard. Of all the great singers I've worked with around the world, THAT was the greatest, the most beautiful voice I had ever heard."

It so happens I was in Carnegie Hall the night of this concert. My friend and I went that night because the program announced in the Times included the great aria Nessun Dorma from Puccini's last opera, Turandot. Bjoerling was famous for a recording of this aria that he had made in Sweden in the 1930s when he was very young. Yet that night, when he walked back on stage after a short break, scheduled to sing that aria, he began with something else, a song not on the program. In frustration, I yelled from the balcony, "Nessun Dorma!" The audience laughed because all those opera fans were thinking the same thing: "Where's the Nessun Dorma? Could he be frightened of the high B natural?" Bjoerling looked up, saluted and stepped over to Frederick Schauwecker to consult with him. He began the aria, stopped again and went back to his famous accompanist. They talked a moment more and then he sang it.

Exelente gravacion teniendo en cuenta el tiempo en q se hizo; Bjorling canta perfecto, aunque huviera preferido un repertorio diferente o mas italiano en cuanto a las Arias,lo recomiendo si eres fan de la voz de Bjorling.
