      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.

      • Dear Lisa, I adore Jonas Kaufman. I can’t believe that beautiful, full voice comes out of that gorgeous man. Ive seen him in the Met productions Wow! He is the new tenor. Lynn
