The World's Greatest Tenor Pays Personal Tribute to Italy with Selection of Immortal Italian Songs!
Jonas Kaufmann is the undisputed tenor king of the world and has proven beyond doubt that he is today's finest interpreter of Italian operatic repertoire. On his new album, Dolce Vita, Kaufmann pays tribute to the land and culture that nurtured his love of music and has produced winning melodies for the tenor voice like no other.
Kaufmann may not have been born in Italy, but he is an "adopted son" and brings an authentic Italian spirit and understanding to the music – with his own inimitable flair. Since his many childhood holidays in Italy, immersed in its history and southern temperament, Kaufmann feels very much at home in his adopted culture – almost everything he brings to the opera stage stems from his passion and understanding of this Mediterranean land and its music.
Dolce Vita is much broader than a Neapolitan album featuring a selection of songs drawn from Italian, Neapolitan and pop songs. The album includes the well-known classics "Torna a Surriento," "Volare," "Core ‘ngrato," "Non ti scordar de me," "Caruso" and many more. 180-gram 2LP set in a double gatefold jacket.
