Peter Hoffman has a beautiful voice as The Phantom, And His Emotion and acting... Splendid! He lrts you know how he feels.
like when he yells "Go Now! Go Now And Leave Me!!" At the end of Das Unterirdische Labyrinth when he lets Christine go you can tell the phantom is heartbroken... also, I like how in the title song in his first solo part he raises the note a little higher.
Anna Marie Kaufmann also has a beautiful voice, like in Denk An Mich she starts out a bit nervous and quiet so that you can tell the difrence between The Rehersal and The Gala.
And at the end of the title song, when Christine starts to vocalize she starts higher than Sarah Brightman did and Ends Higher than Sara Brightman Did!
Hartwig Rudolz makes a dashing Raoul, he sound very similer(in my opinion) to Steve Barton(The Original Raoul in London)
He has very good acting skills and you can hear him use them well in MEHR WILL ICH NICHT VON DIR and DAS UNTERIRDISCHE LABYRINTH.
Ah! The Music! Its Preformed Beautifuly! With Some Added Insterments It Sounds Better Than Ever!
Now, You Should Know... Because Its in German at first it will sound a bit weird, So You Should listen to the London cast a few times...
I Highly recomend
DAS PHANTOM DER OPER
DIE MUSIK DER NACHT
MEHR WILL ICH NICHT VON DIR
DAS UNTERIRDISCHE LABYRINTH
I recommend all this songs,
And I'm A Thirteen Year Old Boy!!
And Some Gratitude Towards Amazon.com is in order
For Having this CD available
The German cast is excelente. Of course, you wont listen to the once-in-a-lifetime cast "Sarah & Michael", but it is also a beautiful recording.
The language it's a bit harder, and can show a bit "less sweeter" if you're nos custumed to listen to the German language. Even though, great pieces as "Think of you" will still have their enchantment.
While listening to this recording you can also imagine the same exact scenes from the London or Brodway production, but with absolut diferent faces and a different concept (inside the same) because of the difference made by a different language.
It really is worth buying. You'll have a great time as a Lloyd Webber & Phantom fan!
