Kaufmann Mahler
Das lied von der erde, from Gustav Mahler, It is subtitled A Symphony for Tenor and Alto (or Baritone). And therefore, traditionally two voices have sung the six movements of the work. But nevertheless Jonas Kaufmann se siente diferente también para esto. I wanted to sing both parts himself, y en junio de este año se unió a la Wiener Philharmoniker y al director de Orquesta Jonathan Nott en un concierto especial en el Goldener Saal en el Musikverein en Viena, donde él mismo cantó toda la obra. Ese momento tan especial queda reflejado en este álbum, en el que todos los movimientos de la obra maestra de Mahler son cantados por una sola voz.
Es probablemente la primera vez que las dos partes y sus seis movimientos están cantadas por una misma voz, en un concierto que desató las mejores críticas. “Y así fue moviéndose después de todo para encontrar el amplio alcance de este trabajo, desde la plenitud y la intensidad de la vida hasta la muerte final, unidos por una sola voz”, wrote Der Standard.
Kaufmann cantó no sólo los movimientos de tenor sino también los de barítono o contralto. “Con la mayoría de los cantantes esto parece presuntuoso, pero con él resulta de una lógica absoluta, porque de esta manera su timbre barítono se pone en magnífica ventaja, mientras que sus notas superiores, but nevertheless, permanecen radiantes”, se leyó en Der Kurier. “Con su maravillosa habilidad para dar forma a una línea melódica, su excelente dicción y entonación y su ejemplar fraseo, Kaufmann hizo toda la empresa suya”.
Nacido en Múnich en 1968, Kaufmann está situado en el escalón más alto del mundo de la ópera, demandado por los directores más influyentes y los teatros más importantes. In 2011 recibió el Opera News Award en Nueva York y fue nombrado Caballero de la Orden de las Artes y de las Letras en Francia. Revistas especializadas y el jurado del ECHO Klassik alemán lo eligieron como Cantante del Año.
