Jonas Kaufmann - Verismo Arias
Jonas Kaufmann - Verismo Arias (Decca 478 2258)
SKU: 15442
AU $27.22

Label: Decca Cat. No.: 478 2258 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

Jonas Kaufmann sings arias from 'verismo' operas - music-dramas that took the expression of human emotions to new heights. "He has everything: intelligence, musicianship, and resourceful technique" wrote The New York Times recently. Now Kaufmann brings his celebrated style and drama to Italian arias made famous by tenor stars from Caruso to Pavarotti. Probably the best known is the 'clown aria' 'Vesti la giubba' from Pagliacci - a vocal and dramatic showpiece and THE definitive aria for the verismo tenor.

In addition to selections from La Gioconda and Andrea Chenier, the album also includes two seductive arias from Adriana Lecouvreur - an opera which Jonas Kaufmann will sing in concert in Berlin in October 2010, before starring (with Angela Gheorghiu) in a new production by David McVicar at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in November 2010.

The album also features several rarities, including Romeo's heartbreaking final aria from Zandonai's Romeo e Giulietta.

The recording was made in Rome, with the Orchestra and chorus of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia conducted by Antonio Pappano - an orchestra and conductor with italian operatic style in their blood.

This is an album for everyone who loves opera - or has ever felt the joy or agony of love.
