And this is Nessun Dorma

But not by Pavarotti. Freens in Springburn, inspired by his autodidact grandfather, reckons Jussi Björling was better. After he commented on the post below, I scrambled over to YouTube and found Björling's spine-tingling version of Nessun Dorma. Listen to this.

Make up your own mind, but I am with Freens.


Pavarotti's classic 1972 recording is also on YouTube. I am wavering. Listen to it here

Glad you like him. Still think he has the edge, especially digitally remastered to remove the 'sssspffft...sssspffft' of a needle on shellac...
