Customer Reviews

Compelling early releaseKaufmann has been a leading tenor for many years, now, & this verismo collection captures the compelling attraction of his young voice. It has been fascinating to follow his early years, online & in videos, in obscure performances including his tenure at the Zurich opera when Cecilia Bartoli was appearing there.5Great singing!!Fabulous things here, the opening aria especially sets the trend for expert singing, detailed, controlled breath-wise, supported by a baritonal fire wall almost. Enjoy this. Jonas does have it all..not a Franco Corelli, however.5ExquisiteIf I have to compare Jonas Kaufmann to anyone (and, really, why do I have to?), I would tend to think of him as a German Placido Domingo with exquisite nuance and baritone shadings (before Domingo morphed into a baritone). His high pianissimos make this lady faint (and I don't even have to look at his provocative photographs).The choice of selections in this CD surpasses his other recordings. Particularly transporting are arias by Zandonai, Cilea, Boito, Giordano, Ponchielli, and Refice. Well, waddya know? That's just about the entire CD, isn't it?So float your fingers over the keys and order this CD!5Music to listen too oftenWonderful --His expression and musical talent are unbeatable.5A joy to hear.Kaufmann has a baritonal voice which can become lyrical. It sounds like combining Vinay with Vickers and the emotionalism of Corelli. However, in reality he has a voice that is unique to himself.He is a good actor, which is shown in his live DVD versions of Tosca and Carmen. I suppose the excerpt from Zandonai's Romeo and Juliet, Giulietta, son io, best sums up his voice.Listen to Ponchielli's Si, questa estrema grazia from I Lituani,virtually an unknown opera. Or Ombra di Nube by Refice, made famous by Clauda Muzio. This is a singer we will be talking about for years, as we did Callas.For Kaufmann is passionate in his singing, as were those of the past like Cortis and his ilk. A must for fans of Kaufmann.5A treasure!This CD is excellent in every way. I only recently discovered Jonas Kaufmann since seeing him in the Met Live in HD performance of Die Walkure. Now i listen and see all I can of his work - I own various Cds and DVDs and can't get enough of him. What a spectacular voice and what sensitive, emotional interpretations of every role he sings. He is the REAL DEAL!!!At long last we have a deserving successor to Placido Domingo!!5And I particularly like his singing hereWell, how to begin? I've said it before and I'll have to say it again: I can't seem to get tired of hearing this man sing. And I particularly like his singing here. Is it the selection of arias or his collaboration with Sir Antonio Pappano, or is it the orchestra of the Academy of Santa Cecilia in Rome? It all boils down to a work of excellence in my opinion and I enjoy it even more than I do Kaufmann's 2013 Verdi Album, if that is possible.This CD is packed with 17 of the most beautiful arias in the Italian language and includes "Ombra di nube", a short and lovely song which makes me visualize a beautiful Italian summer landscape with soft, warm breezes wafting about, although that is not what the lyrics suggest. Yes, this CD comes with the Italian and English text. I think you will love it.5Sheer Vocal Beauty: Jonas Kaufmann and the Italian RepertoireJonas Kaufmann continues to amaze. Not only has he become one of the most popular and loved recitalists (six encores at his recent Los Angeles recital of lieder) who has successfully entered the arena of brilliant lieder singers, but he also has such a magnificent baritone-colored tenor voice and sports such a fitting physique on the stage that he is a natural to be cast in the versimo operas. And that is what he delivers generously on this new release. Collaborating with Antonio Pappano and theAccademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia Jonas Kaufmann is sure to gain an even wider audience with his intelligent, well-focused masculine tenor with which he adds to the definition of 'verismo' - the realism of operatic literature.The selection on this recording is wide ranging, another suggestion that Kaufmann is not satisfied to fill a CD with the expected. Some of the arias are Enrico Caruso favorites while others are from rarely heard operas today. For example he offers arias from 'Giulietta e Romeo' composed by Zandonai, 'I Lituani' by Ponchelli, Leoncavallo's 'La Boheme' (instead of opting of the popular Puccini version), and the incredibly beautiful 'Ombra di nube' by Licinio Refice (1883 - 1954) - a priest and composer few have ever heard. But Kaufmann does not rest on his intellect of introducing arias for the novelty of it all. He graciously includes the great 'Pagliacci' aria of Leoncavallo, two arias from Mascagni's 'Cavalleria rusitcana', two arias from Boito's 'Mefistofele', memorable interpretations from Giordano's 'Andrea Chenier' and 'Fedora' , and from Francesco Cil a's operas 'L'Arlesiana' and 'Adriana Lecouvreur'.Some may feel this voice is too large for the tenor styles and sounds we are used to hearing in these roles, but Jonas Kaufmann's burnished bronze tone does not hamper him from tackling the very high notes with complete ease but his vocal control is so polished that he is able to deliver the pianissimos with equal ease and beauty of timbre. This is a remarkable recital by a gifted tenor - now equally at home in the Italian roles as he is the master of the German repertoire. Highly Recommended. Grady Harp, April 115Jonas KaufmanWhat a wonderful recording. Kaufmann is one of my favorite singers and I'm always happy to be able to hear him sing again and again. I heard him in a recital this year singing German lieder. It was like being present at a concert for a rock star--there was foot stomping, prolonged clapping and cheering plus a number of encores. Heard him again in the Met Opera's production of Die Walkure albeit the simulcast where he starred again.5Excellent cdBeautiful voice, good selection.5
