5.0 out of 5 stars Adriana Lecouvreur, 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cilea - Adriana Lecouvreur [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
I have known the big soprano arias from Callas recordings and bought this set primarily for Jonas Kauffman's voice. He is quite magnificent as always, being the best operatic tenor of this century and Angela Gheorghiu is a wonderful Adriana. This performance was specially mounted at her request not having been seen for years. I'm so glad she asked and her request was granted.

Theodora S says:
The ''best operatic tenor of this century''? For the love of God....

I don't want to offend you, but are you familiar with any other tenor than Kaufmann?

Glilla Bear says:
Theodora, I agree with your sentiments, but it is possible to make a point in a subtler way. By the way, Jonas would be a credible contender for such an accolade. Whether he'd prevail, well......

Well, we're talking about THIS century, XXI, because in the XXth there were quite a few way ahead...

Neil Walker says:
True - senior moment; but I think Theodora S and Alan J were both referring to XXth. I would agree with the former that Kaufmann is the best operatic tenor of the XXIst! (especially since Domingo has turned baritone.....)

Theodora and Glilla, remember that this is the TWENTY-FIRST century. I agree that numerous tenors of the TWENTIETH century surpassed Kaufmann, but as the greatest (or one of the greatest) tenor(s) of this current century, he certainly weighs in very honourably.

Glilla Bear says:
Hi Gerald,
Point taken, but then, saying somebody is the greatest of the century at 0001hrs on Jan 1st, 2000 (or would it be 2001?) would be saying much, would it. I think, until around 2040 people who speak of "the.....est this century" will be referring to the 20th.
All best, Glilla.

One could say something along the lines of "the greatest tenor of the past hundred years", "the greatest tenor of our times", "the greatest tenor ever recorded" (the phonograph going back, after all, into the 19th century), "the greatest tenor of the post-W.W. 2 era", and so forth, according to taste or the approximate (and long) time span that one desires to convey.
