In preparation for Jonas Kaufmann's recital of Winterreise on the main stage, we look at the history of this exquisite art form.
Jonas Kaufmann is one of the greatest singers of his generation. He is renowned around the world not only for the beauty of his voice but for the intelligent musicality of his singing – qualities evident in all of Kaufmann's roles for The Royal Opera, which include Don Carlo, Don José (Carmen), Alfredo (La traviata), Cavaradossi (Tosca) and Maurizio (Adriana Lecouvreur).
In his first recital on the Royal Opera House's main stage, the internationally acclaimed singer turns to Schubert's glorious song cycle Winterreise. At the piano is Kaufmann's regular recital partner, Helmut Deutsch.
