BJÖRLING Cavalleria Rusticana & Pagliacci

This week we bring you two classic 'verismo' operas starring the legendary Swedish tenor, Jussi Björling. Recorded in New York in 1953 with a host of other Met Opera stars - including Zinka Milanov, Victoria de los Angeles, Robert Merrill and Leonard Warren - these are truly classic recordings.

The baton of Renato Cellini never fails to deliver in Mascagni's Cavalleria Rusticana and Leoncavallo's Pagliacci, and these new Ambient Stereo XR remasters have breathed new life into these fabulous studio performances.

We also celebrate the life of Sir Edward Elgar, who died 90 years ago this week, with a full 20% off all our recordings of his music - including those he conducted himself all those years ago.
