Notes & Reviews:
"Sayão and Björling sing as ravishingly alone as they do together; seemingly enamoured of one another, their young sounds in full bloom, aware of text and dynamics, they are deeply moving...[Sayão] does not have to try to sound young and innocent...this is a perfect marriage of singer and song. The same is true of Björling...I cannot think of another tenor who has filled this role so flawlessly...For the two stars, this is crucial listening." -International Record ReviewNotes & Reviews:
