Jonas Kaufmann's next cd, Sehnsucht, already out in Germany, is entirely in German. His German singing is as good as it gets. If you listen to him talk here
, you hear that he is clearly a tenor. Gee, I love him.
The interview I used to show here is removed.
They mention that he speaks 5 languages and ask him to sing something in Swiss German. He says he can't think of anything. They ask him if he could sing something, and he talks a long time about how much he has to warm up before singing as a way of getting out of it. He says he warms up in the morning just to make sure everything is working correctly.
Hi there - Sorry if you already know this, but you can order the new Jonas CD from the German amazon site (amazon.de, I think). I don't know German (I think you do), but I was able to easily navigate through and all my US account info was there. It arrived in under 2 weeks. It was an impulse purchase, but I didn't want to wait for the US version! The liner notes are all in German, so I don't understand them, but the music is great! :) They also have a deluxe version with DVD that apprears to be region 0.
