Many thanks to our friend Bob for this gem
Even though I prefer Sutherland over Nilsson in the role of Turandot, this is the BENCHMARK. Even though Pavarotti & Caballé with Sutherland, Fernandi & Schwarzkopf with Callas and Corelli & Scotto with Nilsson on the other album are excellent, Björling & Tebaldi are the pick of the litter! The role of Calàf as sung by Björling, is one of the most beautifully sung portrayals in recorded music (subjective, personal opinion). Tebaldi’s pianissimi are absolutely ethereal, easily rivaling Caballé and surpassing Scotto. For early “Living Stereo”, the sound is surprisingly spacious and clean. This I believe was Björling’s last complete opera recording; the Verdi Requiem closely following.
