Album of the week
Romantic Arias
As he is demonstrating in the Royal Opera House's La Traviata, the German tenor Jonas Kaufmann has an artistry as refined as any in the business. All he lacks is a really big sound, but that doesn't matter here. He begins with a graceful rendition of "Your Little Hand Is Frozen", and moves on via Don Jose in Carmen to a well- chosen medley from Verdi, Massenet, Gounod and Weber. ****
