Jonas Kaufmann - Wagner - Financial Times

Financial Times
5 Stars

A matchless Wagner recital...Tannhäuser's Act 3 Rome Narration is a triumph of heroic timbre, dramatic intensity and musical sensibility...The gem for me is the Wesendonck Lieder, intended for soprano and yet, thanks to singing of such melting ardour, perfectly "owned" by the world's leading Wagner tenor.
