      Schubert: Winterreise, D 911: Gute Nacht (5:32); Die Wetterfahne (1:41); Gefrorne Träne (2:23)

      Jonas Kaufmann, tenor; Helmut Deutsch, piano

      For Jonas Kaufmann, however much he loves opera, he considers interpreting the classical lieder repertory the highest order of singing. It demands far more detailed work than any other vocal discipline, more color, more nuances and a greater range of dynamics. Says Kaufmann, “I think that Winterreise has the same sort of cathartic effect as a Greek drama: the emotional experience purges the soul. For me, the work has an almost meditative effect because Schubert expressed these emotional depths that allow me to regain my own inner balance.”
