Press Quotes


Kaufmann's reassuringly expensive-sounding voice finding luxurious and ardent support from Antonio Pappano and his Santa Cecilia Orchestra…Dick Johnson suits his poetico-heroic manner well…and there are few quibbles with Kaufmann in the title track, delivered (as the disc's finale) with his trademark purring, mahogany-tinged tone and rising to a ringing top B

Financial Times

Although he does not sound very Italian, Kaufmann draws strength from staying true to himself, a gloriously bronze-voiced German tenor, welding musicianship with smouldering emotion...Pappano and his Santa Cecilia orchestra fire up every track with native Italian passion.

The Times

On stage he is remarkably invested in character and text, in other words in being somebody else rather than himself. The best of Nessun Dorma — and Kaufmann’s best is peerless — shows how well he can do that even on record, assisted by the vivid playing of the Santa Cecilia Orchestra in Rome under Antonio Pappano.”

The Observer

All the operas (except the all-female Suor Angelica) are represented, ending with a pinging, thrilling Nessun Dorma. It’s as far from Pavarotti as you can get, yet still captures the essence of Puccini.
