The Singer

Pure bliss … He was unique among the great Finnish bass-singers who made world-careers in the last half of the 20th. century. Unique, in having the supreme voice of the cello-tone, – being the instrument, creating the atmosphere around both the highly spiritual and fallen leaders, Mozart’s Sarastro as well as Mussorgskijs Boris. Whatever the character contained, it was from the beginning an archetype, when a voice like Borg’s interpreted it.” (Peter Johannes Erichsen’s obituary in ‘Weekendavisen’, 5. – 11.maj 2000)
