Jonas Kaufmann, Tenor Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz Jochen Rieder, Leitung
"The world's greatest tenor." The Daily Telegraph needs only four words to describe Jonas Kaufmann. In fact, nothing more needs to be said about the charismatic singer. For many years he has been one of the absolute top stars on the opera stage, at home in the world's leading musical theaters as well as on the international concert stages. Today Munich, tomorrow Met, the day after tomorrow Vienna State Opera: not uncommon in Kaufmann's calendar. The secret ingredients of his career include not only unique expressiveness and impressive stage presence, but also breathtaking musical versatility, which he regularly demonstrates in his concert appearances. For then he often spans the spectrum from Verdi to the Viennese Lied. When he travels to Frankfurt for another Pro Arte guest performance, his fans can look forward to an exquisite opera gala.
