Verdi: La forza del destino: O tu, che in seno agli angeli (10:41)
Jonas Kaufmann, tenor; Parma Opera Orchestra / Pier Giorgio Morandi
It was with Verdi that the leading tenor of our time, Jonas Kaufmann, made his international breakthrough in 2006 when he sang Alfredo Germont in La Traviata at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. For Kaufmann, the Verdi bicentenary in 2013 will be dominated by performances of works by the great Italian opera composer, including this debut album for Sony Classical. His choice of arias demonstrates the remarkable breadth of Kaufmann’s musical versatility and expression.
