The documentation of Jussi Björling on this website has been essentially expanded in April 2017! 

There is now a detailed chronology, in English and Swedish, of his more than three thousand known performances (see ”About Jussi Björling / Performances”). A list of all opera companies he sang with, including the number of his performances with them, has also been added (see under ”Performances”:  ”Jussi in Opera”). At the same time, the list of his recordings has been updated once more.

The recorded performance where Jussi sings in this picture, can now, as an example, be found in two places:
