Sony Classical is pleased to welcome the internationally acclaimed tenor, Jonas Kaufmann to the label with his Sony debut recording The Verdi Album. Recorded in Auditorium Niccolò Paganini in Parma with Pier Giorgio Morandi conducting the Orchestra dell'Opera di Parma, this new album features thirteen highlights, eleven of which are firsts for Kaufmann: so far on stage he has sung only the tenor favorite "La donna è mobile" from Rigoletto and the duet with the Marquis de Posa from Don Carlo. It was with Verdi that he made his international breakthrough in 2006, when he sang Alfredo Germont in La traviata at the Met. For Kaufmann the Verdi bicentenary in 2013 is inevitably dominated by performances of works by the great Italian opera composer, with three productions of Don Carlo (in London, Milan and Salzburg), two role débuts in Il trovatore and La forza del destino and his first album devoted to Verdi.
