5.0 out of 5 stars l new reliable tenor, 27 Dec 2009
This review is from: Kaufmann: Mozart, Schubert, Beethoven, Wagner (Audio CD)
When I listened, many years ago, the first Vickers' RCA mono recital I got extremely impressed; not so my friends. Time gave me the reason with generosity. I will be very compact. I feel that this young German tenor is "the" tenor of the moment together with Juan Diego Florez, who's a tenore di grazzia. I am speaking straightly of seriuosness. I feel also that Kaufmann has the same seriousness, vocal technique and, perhaps, colour of Jon Vickers with the paramount advantage that he is German and has foreign laguanges facility. We coud say that Kaufmann is a very clever man, more than Vickers, and that he's a bit less "rocky" than Vickers. But throat natural notes and high notes, are very similar. Also Kaufmann is a real modern artist, if a little inclined to sentimental performance (that I don¡'t like), he never reach the exagerate level of Vickers, for example, at the end of studio Tristan or as Samson. Buy his records without hessitation.
