Jonas Kaufmann - The Verdi Album
This year Jonas Kaufmann celebrates the bicentenaries of Wagner and Verdi with recital albums dedicated to both. Newly released is The Verdi Album, a collection of scenes and arias that build on the success of his Wagner. My copy only arrived yesterday so I am still getting familiar with it, but can tell you that his voice is in astonishing form, the B Flat at the end of Celeste Aida a work of art in itself.
The download comes with a couple of videos as well as digital booklet. Have a look below at the Making of The Verdi Album for a taste of his artistry and head to Spotify if you use it, or iTunes, it's well worth it. Have a great weekend.
