Operatic tenor Jonas Kaufmann performs arias and scenes by Wagner with Donald Runnicles leading the Orchester der Deutschen Oper Berlin.
"There is plenty of ear candy to back up the eye candy that is German Jonas Kaufmann. An operatic tenor with the rich timbre of a baritone, Kaufmann has evolved into the great Wagnerian leading man of our time. He lays out some short highlights of what makes him so on his latest album, a survey of Richard Wagner's evolution as an opera composer. With the solid support of conductor Donald Runnicles leading the orchestra and choir of the Deutscher Oper in Berlin, this album is nothing less than a how-to guide to any other aspiring dramatic tenor. The care and craft behind Kaufmann's art, as well as the many colours he can get from his voice, are an opera lover's dream." - Record Review / John Terauds, Toronto Star / February 19, 2013
"Hungry for some thrilling opera singing? The German tenor Jonas Kaufmann is just about the most exciting guy out there these days. Apparently he can sing almost anything (try his "Werther", or perhaps "Tosca") but he's exceptional in Wagner . . ." - Record Review / Tom Huizenga, NPR (Washington) / January 3, 2013
