Kaufmann - Wagner. . . should be in every Wagnerite's collection. Jonas Kaufmann is a Wagner tenor who need fear no comparison with anyone, however far back you go. His tone is beautiful, his command of line and dynamics impeccable, and his familiarity with Wagner's idiom unimpeachable . . . Kaufmann's artistry and the beautiful playing of the Deutsche Oper Berlin Orchestra under Donald Runnicles makes this a must-buy.-David Mellor, Daily Mail (London)

Nessun Dorma - The Puccini AlbumAfter years of singing Giacomo Puccini's heroes on stage to vast critical and audience acclaim, "the world's greatest tenor"(The Daily Telegraph), Jonas Kaufmann, finally records an album entirely devoted to the world's most-loved opera composer. The new album, Nessun dorma is a selection of Puccini's stupendous tenor arias drawn from his greatest opera's including Tosca, Manon Lescaut, La Bohème, Madame Butterfly and La fanciulla del West.

Jonas Kaufmann is joined on this album by Maestro Antonio Pappano, the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and soprano Kristine Opolais. Nessun Dorma - The Puccini Album is also available on 180-gram vinyl and on CD as a Deluxe Edition with a bonus DVD that includes an EPK plus excerpts from upcoming DVD releases Manon Lescaut and La Fanciulla del West.

He is in extreme demand with the world's most influential conductors, selling out opera houses and concert venues months in advance wherever he performs. In 2011, he received the Opera News Award in New York and was made a Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres in France. He has been awarded "Singer of the Year" by many prestigious journals including ECHO Klassic and Musical America. Kaufmann is also an internationally sought-after concert and lieder singer. In October of 2011 he performed the first solo recital to be given at the Metropolitan Opera since Luciano Pavarotti in 1994LP1

Dolce VitaJonas Kaufmann is the undisputed tenor king of the world and has proven beyond doubt that he is today's finest interpreter of Italian operatic repertoire. On his new album, Dolce Vita, Kaufmann pays tribute to the land and culture that nurtured his love of music and has produced winning melodies for the tenor voice like no other. Kaufmann may not have been born in Italy, but he is an "adopted son" and brings an authentic Italian spirit and understanding to the music - with his own inimitable flair. Since his many childhood holidays in Italy, immersed in its history and southern temperament, Kaufmann feels very much at home in his adopted culture - almost everything he brings to the opera stage stems from his passion and understanding of this Mediterranean land and its music. Dolce Vita is much broader than a Neapolitan album featuring a selection of songs drawn from Italian, Neapolitan and pop songs. The album includes the well-known classics "Torna a Surriento," "Volare," "Core 'ngrato," "Non ti scordar de me," "Caruso" and many more.LP 1

Wayfaring Strangers: Lonesome Heroes (On Sale)The standard route for popular music, songwriter to publisher to label to artist, survived the '60s only to be overrun by a generation of folkies agog at giants strumming in the rearview. They were inspired by iconoclasts from Charley Patton to Woody Guthrie, artists entirely reliant on one guitar, one voice, and ones own words. But our heroes were not the agrarian luddites of yesterfolk. They cheered when Dylan plugged in and were rapt when Lennon and McCartney modernized songcraft, making the studio process justas important to song creation as setting the chords and words down.
The resultant work wasnt as readily reduced to words on paper as the Broadside pages that preceded them, success relied heavily on the way these songs were captured and transmitted: the sound of the room, the turn of a phrase, the odd way a piano got miced, or the way a guitar fell perfectly out of tune. As long as the end result was somber, dark, and meditative, it didnt matter if it was a conscious choice or a happily unhappy accident.
Each of our lonesome heroes began his journey from a wildly divergent place. Some of the stops may been similar, but each was made in different ways at different times for different reasons. All these travelers somehow found their ultimate destination on this disc. From artists who never played one professional gig to those that never stopped playing professionally, whose only shared experience is a journey set upon with no known end, sharing their thoughts, emotions and dreams with a lonely few along the way.
Wayfaring Stranger: Lonesome Heroes is the male singer/songwriter companion to Numero 008, Wayfaring Strangers: Ladies From The Canyon and Numero 018, Wayfaring Strangers: Guitar Soli.
Features 17 rare tracks by folk unknowns Jim Schoenfeld, Jim Ransom, Richard Smyrnios, Tucker Zimmermann, Kieran White, Les Moore, Rob Carr, Jack Hardy, George Cromarty, Jay Bolotin, Tony Trosley, Roger Lewis, Tim Ward, David Kaufmann, John Villemonte, Bob Brown and Robb Kunkel.
