superb at last,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Schubert: Winterreise (Audio CD)
I am well acquainted with Kaufmann's superb performances in opera but I approached his journey into lieder with some trepidation. I need not have worried!. The superb voice was there in abundance but his complete understanding of the text and his wonderful interpretation of each song with their differing nuances was masterful. Helmut Deutsch was the perfect accompanist and contributed massively to the successful project.
I have heard many previous versions of this famous song cycle by some excellent artists including Dietrich Fischer Diskau but, to my mind, none has approached this latest attempt and, certainly, none have reduced me to tears at the end. Thank-you Jonas Kaufmann.
May we expect Tristan within the next couple of years?
