Listen to a Sample:

 

Kerstin Meyer is a seductive, moody Carmen in this taut performance from Stockholm. The performance, sung in an elegant Swedish translation, offers a rare chance to hear Sigurd Björling outside of his normal Wagnerian rep, and features a young Elisabeth Söderström as Micaëla. Andre Hendrikssen is a ringing Don José, although he is occasionally underpowered. There are some cuts, including the Act III prelude, but the closely-miked sound is excellent.
