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.
