Jonas Kaufmann celebrates Giuseppe Verdi’s bi-centennial year with his first album devoted entirely to the music of the most beloved Italian opera composer of all time. The tenor’s far-reaching selection extends arias from Rigoletto, Aida, Il Trovatore, Un Ballo in Maschera, Otello and others.
For Jonas Kaufmann, Verdi is “a man of the people: his music is so powerful that it reaches people and moves them even outside the world of opera. Quite simply, Verdi is musically synonymous with Italy.”
