SIXTY YEARS have elapsed since Jussi passed away, but his recordings are still in great demand, whether sold on CD or downloaded from the web. His art is preserved in 39 complete operas and choral works and at least 628 individual titles like songs and arias. Though the very most of them have now been reissued on CD, recordings are still being made available in that format, using the latest technology.
In June 2015, Harald Henrysson’s list of recordings of Jussi Björling and the disc and tape issues where they are represented (A Jussi Björling Phonography) was published in its entirety on the web for the first time. After his latest revision in November 2020, it comprises 3241 issues, 1498 of which are CDs. The Pearl Fishers Duet is presented in no less than 229 versions!
Access to two large collections, one at The Jussi Björling Museum and the other privately owned by Pär-Olov Jansson, have been important for the recurrent updates.
