Wagner fans are very excited about Jonas Kaufmann. His debut in Parsifal at the Metropolitan Opera in February is only the latest of many acclaimed portrayals. Even if you aren’t among the devotees who revel in the sometimes mystifying journey that is Parsifal, you can enjoy Kaufmann’s engaging approach in small savory doses.
“Just about anything the German tenor Jonas Kaufmann does these days is special,” says Mike Silverman of the Associated Press. “And he sounds in particularly fresh voice as he ventures into some new and some familiar territory on this album of excerpts from Richard Wagner’s operas.”
