Interview, aus der Sendung "Music Matters"

The German tenor Jonas Kaufmann is one of the most acclaimed artists currently performing on the international opera stage. Heralded as the successor to the great tenors in Italian and French repertoire, he’s also been cited as the saviour of the German tenor roles following his Bayreuth Festival debut earlier this year. Having recently sung a sell out Schubert recital at London’s Wigmore Hall, he is now preparing for his role debut as Maurizio in Adriana Lecouvreur at the Royal Opera House.

Tom Service meets Jonas in the midst of rehearsals at Covent Garden, where he talks about the differences in performing Wagner and Verdi and how a new teacher saved his voice.
