Jonas Kaufmann: Wagner
Wagner: Rienzi: Allmächt’ger Vater, blick herab! (9:47)
Jonas Kaufmann, tenor; Berlin Deutsche Oper Orchestra / Donald Runnicles
This new album on Decca was recorded for the Wagner anniversary year by the world’s leading Wagner tenor. The disc includes a selection of the great Heldentenor scenes and arias coupled with the complete Wesendonck-Lieder (rarely recorded by the tenor voice). Kaufmann’s other contributions to the Wagner bicentenary will include performances in the title role of the Metropolitan Opera’s new production of Parsifal.
