Following the success of the album 'Wien', esteemed tenor, Jonas Kaufmann, returns with a DVD and BluRay release of 'Mein Wein'. This is Jonas Kaufmann's deeply personal tribute to the world-famous melodies from Vienna, the birthplace of waltz and operetta and follows up the album release from Fall 2019. The 100-minute film consists of Jonas Kaufmann's Wiener Konzerthaus concert interspersed with documentary-style segments where Jonas Kaufmann explores the city's fascinating lighter musical heritage.

'Wien' features a stunning collection of operetta hits and Viennese songs composed between 1870 and 1950. Kaufmann teams up with the world-renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Adam Fischer. His concert from the Wiener Konzerthaus includes well-known Viennese songs like “Wien, Wien nur du allein”, “Im Prater blühn wieder die Bäume”, “Sag beim Abschied leise 'Servus'”. He also sings scenes from famous operettas such as The Merry Widow, Wiener Blut and Die Fledermaus where soprano Rachel Willis-Sørensen joins him on the duets. The city also inspired many timeless songs including Robert Stolz's “Im Prater blühn wieder die Bäume” and Rudolf Sieczyński's “Wien, Wien nur du allein”, Hans May's “Heut ist der Schönste Tag”; Hermann Leopoldi's “In einem kleinen Café in Hernals” and Georg Kreisler's “Der Tod muss ein Wiener sein” - to name a few of these charming songs championed down the years by the tenor-greats such as Richard Tauber, Rudolf Schock and Fritz Wunderlich.

Kaufmann has won numerous prestigious awards including Gramophone Awards and Echo Klassik Awards.

“The most dramatic piece that Berlioz ever wrote,” is how conductor John Nelson describes La Damnation de Faust. The composer designated this thrilling hybrid of oratorio and opera a 'légende dramatique'. Following in the triumphant footsteps of Les Troyens, also recorded at the Auditorium Erasme in Strasbourg, this performance reunites Nelson and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg with singers Michael Spyres, Joyce DiDonato and Nicolas Courjal.

“The most dramatic piece that Berlioz ever wrote,” is how conductor John Nelson describes La Damnation de Faust. Based on Goethe's Faust and first performed in 1846, it is an epic hybrid of oratorio and opera - a 'légende dramatique' according to the composer, who recognised that its greatest potential lay in firing the audience's imagination: “Music has great wings,” he said, “but the walls of a theatre do not allow it to spread them to the full.”

This recording was made in the Auditorium Erasme in Strasbourg in April 2019, two years after Nelson, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg and a superb cast including Joyce DiDonato, Michael Spyres and Nicolas Courjal brought Berlioz's Les Troyens to life in the same venue. The associated Erato recording of the huge two-part opera has gone on to win unalloyed praise and multiple major prizes. As the New York Times wrote: “Berlioz's epic opera has rarely been given such luxury treatment as in this magnificent live recording from France.”

“If you see one opera this year, make it The Exterminating Angel,” ran the headline in the New York Times after the US premiere of Thomas Adès' “stunningly inventive” opera based on Luis Buñuel's surreal and satirical 1962 film El ángel exterminador. Like the British composer's score, Tom Cairns' production is both spectacular and surprising. “Adès keeps the listener on edge,” wrote Opera magazine, “because one never knows where his dazzling palette of possibilities will take him next.”

'Jonas Kaufmann Sings an 'Otello' for the Ages'- New York Times. On a sweltering night at London's Royal Opera House in June 2017, Jonas Kaufmann made his debut performance as Otello - one of the most coveted and challenging roles in the tenor operatic repertoire. The Guardian commented on his performance: “Kaufmann thrills in a dark, expres-sionistic staging”. This new production by director Keith Warner presents a simultaneously modern and abstract approach to one of Verdi's greatest operas. The DVD and Blu-Ray will also include two short bonus features: - An introduction to the opera & a short feature about the music of the opera with the conductor and tenor.

Thielemann, widely regarded as the leading Brucknerian of our age, opted for the livelier early original Linz version of this symphony. Buckner himself called it 'a cheeky wench' and said about the finale: 'Never again have I been so audacious and bold'.

The soprano Daniela Dessì died suddenly on 20th August 2016, aged 59. She was hailed by critics and colleagues as one of the finest voices the world of opera has ever known. Dynamic pays tribute to the great soprano with this recording, filmed just one year before her untimely death. Her performance of Giordano's Fedora was one of the pinnacles of her stunning artistic career. In the famous aria O grandi occhi lucenti from Act One, she delivers a technically perfect and emotionally passionate performance worthy of a great star. The story takes place at the end of the 19th century, in St. Petersburg (Act One), Paris (Act Two) and Switzerland (Act Three). It's an operatic crime story, a drama of passion, revenge and guilt that unravels against a historical backdrop of Czarist Russia's political and ideological conflicts in the late 19th century. Daniela Dessì is a complete prima donna of outstanding finesse, her rich voice both powerfully intense and deeply expressive. Tenor Fabio Armiliato shines particularly in the famous aria Amor ti vieta from Act Two, with a commanding and highly expressive stage presence in support of a powerful and wonderfully nuanced voice. The finale of the opera is reserved for the two protagonists, companions both on stage and in life. The singers surpass themselves, and it is impossible not to be moved when Fedora dies, believing that fate would shortly turn theatrical makebelieve into reality.
