Jonas Kaufmann - Tenor Jana Sibera - Soprano Prague Philharmonic Orchestra Marco Armiliato - Conductor

"His voice is intense and powerful, with a grainy texture." - excerpt from Wholenote Magazine review
This superb tenor builds on his Award-winner with opera arias to be savoured, "Don’t judge this album from the first aria – the Puccini arias are the weakest here. The French repertoire finds Kaufmann on excellent form. The most encouraging thing about him is his musical intelligence – a genuine soft high note to crown his Carmen Flower Song – and elsewhere he strives to serve the music. The voice can’t quite do all he asks yet, but it’s full of brooding, Vinay-like darkness." -- Gramophone [4/2008]
Gramophone Editor's Choice - April 2008
Wonderfully versatile. So many tenors focus on the Italian repertoire, so it is nice to hear a tenor who chooses to re-introduce us to seldomly heard treasures from Der Freischutz and Martha.
