One of the top two

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.

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.
