Jonas Kaufmann & Diana Damrau

The incomparable voices of Jonas Kaufmann and Diana Damrau, in some of the profoundest songs in the German language.

Hugo Wolf considered his Italian Songbook ‘the most original and artistically the most perfect of all my works’. For anyone who loves great song, the opportunity to hear it sung by two of the world’s pre-eminent living singers is self-recommending.

Kaufmann is never more revealing than when collaborating with singers of comparable stature, so Diana Damrau makes an ideal partner on Wolf’s troubled, piercingly beautiful emotional journey. They’re joined by the distinguished lieder pianist Helmut Deutsch – for Damrau, ‘a truly outstanding interpreter’.
