Bjiorling, Jessi(Johan)


(1907-1960) Swedish tenor, taught by his father, then studied at the Royal Opera School in Stockholm, debut there in 1930, sang regularly there until 1939, sang elsewhere-Vienna, Chicago, London, and NY Met. Sang Italian, French, and Russian repertory, but (except Mozart) not German. Had a warm and appealing voice with excellent taste.
