Jonas Kaufmann's new album is out in the UK and the reviews are good. And how could they not be? He is a German singer with a distinctively German style and naturally excels in the German repertoire, but the other stuff sounds pretty good, too. I am not the only one who finds this a fabulous Prize Song.
Here's a nice quote from the internet: Er ist sexy wie Brad, hat Locken wie Antonio, kann spielen wie George und singen - wie sonst keiner: Wenn der Münchner Jonas Kaufmann den Mund aufmacht, liegt ihm das Opernpublikum zu Füßen. [He is sexy like Brad (Pitt), has hair like Antonio (Banderas), can act like George (Clooney?) and sings like no one else: when Municher Jonas Kauffman opens his mouth, the opera public is at his feet.]
