Notes and Editorial Reviews

Earlier this summer, Jonas Kaufmann, “The world’s greatest tenor” (The Telegraph), performed his most popular Italian repertoire live at Waldbühne, Berlin’s outdoor amphitheater. The smash-success live concert was recorded for Kaufmann’s new album, An Italian Evening. Kaufmann brought-the-house-down with a succession of hits from his extremely popular Dolce Vita album as well as exciting arias and duets (with mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili) from the Italian opera repertoire including “Volare,” “Non ti scordar di me” and “Nessun Dorma.” Earlier this summer, Jonas Kaufmann, “The world’s greatest tenor” (The Telegraph), performed his most popular Italian repertoire live at Waldbühne, Berlin’s outdoor amphitheater.
