    Bjorling/de los Angeles & Bergonzi/Tebaldi are both benchmark recordings. I only wish Bjorling and Tebaldi had made the recording together. I have always owned these two albums for over 50 years. There is no way to compare the 2 tenors or the 2 sopranos; each has a unique approach to their role. There are many great recordings made after these, but they were never bettered. I know the average modern collector of opera wants stereo and opulent sound; but if you want great singing, try these .

    I am not the world's expert on classical music, but you will not be disappointed in any way. From NPR comes this: In 1956, English conductor Thomas Beecham happened to be in New York with time on his hands, and sort of on a hunch, the EMI folks said, "Let's make a recording." It could only have happened in New York, and probably only in the 1950s. The results really do speak for themselves: experience, love of the music and the kind of harmony among the participants — the great tenor Jussi Bjorling, soprano Victoria de los Angeles and baritone Robert Merrill — that is rare on the stage, and especially rare in recordings.
