Trying to find Björling singing «Pourquoi me réveiller».

Post by Oskar »

I can’t seem to find ant recordings of Jussi doing this aria. Can anybody help me find it, if it does indeed exist? 😊

There is none such recording. The publication of reference in such cases is Daniele Godor's exhaustive commented Björling discography, published on the tenor website that was once run by Francois Nouvion; but since Nouvion is dead and the site is currently in the process of reconstruction, that Björling discography is unavailable for the time being. But it will return, so for future reference, the site's new address: www.historicaltenors.net

Just as a point of interest, I didn't know that Nouvion had died but a quick look at 'Historical Tenors' indicate that he passed away suddenly on 18th June 2016. I didn't like him nor him me. 'Historical Tenors' is an excellent reference site however but that's it.

Geoff.

The commented Björling discography that I mentioned above (with more than 100 sound examples!) is back online on www.historicaltenors.net (--> Scandinavian tenors --> Jussi Björling --> commented discography).
