Jonas Kaufmann is one of today's leading young operatic tenors and, arguably, the pre-eminent Wagner tenor of this generation. Kaufmann Wagner was recorded in 2013, in Berlin with the Deutsche Oper Orchestra under Donald Runnicles. This carefully thought-out recital includes excerpts from the operas Die Walkure, Siegfried, Lohengrin, Tannhauser and Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg, plus a performance of the Wesendonck-Lieder. Kaufmann pushes the confines of the recital excitingly towards the level of live performance. Subtly recorded (in East Berlin’s atmospheric-sounding Funkhaus studio) and magically accompanied by the Deutsche Oper Orchestra, this album is something of a triumph.
