Customer Reviews

Kaufmann at his best!!

The absolute GOLD of this recording is the Wesendonck Lieder performed for the first time to my hearing by a tenor. Wagner marked the score for female voice but I have no doubt he would have applauded this performance.
I loved the two-stanza version of the "Lohengrin" narration and it forms the high point in an already definitive collection of Wagnerian highlights. Kaufmann is utterly credible as the heroic paradigm of chivalry, this is by far the finest recording he has made and is destined to be a classic of the genre. A "must hear" for Wagnerians!!

Wagner as originally intended by Wagner

I came to Wagner nearly sixty years ago; and have seen a number of hopeful new Helden tenors come and go. The tragic loss of Wunderlich deprived us for many years as Wagner interpretations wandered wildly in quality. Kaufmann is like a ray of sunshine on a winters day. He sings with style and presentation; but also with conviction. He is not the bumptious representations of the various heros; but the fallible men that Wagner intended. As for the Weisendonc lieder - what more can you say. I was moved to tears by his rendering. I think he may well become one of the greatest helden tenors of the era. I hope to live long enough to see him fully acknowledged as the great singer he is.
