About Jonas Kaufmann
 

Upcoming performances

 

Jonas Kaufmann was born in Munich in 1969.

"A leading figure at the Zurich Opera House, Kaufmann is arguably the finest tenor Germany has produced in the past half-century," wrote Tim Ashley for guardian.co.uk.

CD

 

  Humperdinck - Königskinder

"A new recording of Humperdinck's rarely heard Königskinder allows us to say farewell to Armin Jordan, the Swiss conductor who recently died. I was present at the concert in July 2005 of which this is the aural souvenir, and it is as magical just listening at home as it was in the concert hall. It is difficult to imagine the work on stage, particularly the first act in which the geese participate, but there is too much wonderful music to let this opera just fade away. Ofelia Sala's Goose Girl and Jonas Kaufmann's Prince are touching lovers, singing in honeyed tones, the microphones allowing us to hear some extra vibrato on her high notes that was not noticeable in the hall, while he is clearly on his way towards the lighter Wagnerian heroes."--Joel Kasow, culturekiosque.com
