Jonas Kaufmann, Donald Runnicles and Orchester der Deutschen Oper Berlin. How could you possibly top this for the Wagner year celebration. And he's doing the Wesendonck Lieder, of all things. This is available February 12.
Here is a nice film about the recording.
Brief comment: the greatest singers listen to the greats. Anna Netrebko listens to Callas, Freni and Scotto. This is not a coincidence.
And if that isn't enough...
Also released on February 12. Happy Wagner year.
