The German tenor, Jonas Kaufmann, has just released a new French aria collection, ‘L’Opéra’ on Sony Classical. He was in London earlier this year to sing his first Otello, at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and Gramophone’s James Jolly went to talk to him about the recording.
You can download the podcast by visiting Gramophone's page at iTunes where you'll also find many other episodes to enjoy, and where you can subscribe (for free) to future podcasts. Alternatively, you can listen to the Podcast below.
Kaufmann is also the subject of a fly-on-the-wall documentary, made by John Bridcut for BBC Four, ‘Jonas Kaufmann Tenor for the Ages’, which will be broadcast at 7.30pm on Sunday, October 15, as part of the BBC’s opera season.
