In Fernem Land (in Swedish)

No time for a proper post today, but just before I head home from the office how about this? It’s In Fernem Land from the opera Lohengrin I went to see last weekend, but sung by the great tenor Jussi Björling not in German but in his native language, Swedish. I think it’s wonderful…

  1. “I fjärran land”

    Definitely Swedish (my native language too), and yes Jussi’s rendition is absolutely beautiful. His diction is admirable.
