It was with Verdi that Jonas Kaufmann made his international breakthrough in 2006, when he sang Alfredo Germont in La traviata at the Met. The Verdi bicentenary in 2013 is inevitably dominated by performances of works by the great Italian opera composer, with Kaufmann featuring in 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. It features thirteen highlights, of which eleven are firsts for Kaufmann: on stage he had so far sung only the tenor favourite “La donna è mobile” from Rigoletto and the duet with the Marquis de Posa from Don Carlo.


1. Rigoletto, Atto III, Canzone: "La donna è mobile"

2. Aida, Atto I, Scena e romanza: "Se quel guerrier io fossi!...Celeste Aida"

3. Un ballo in maschera, Atto I, Canzone: "Di' tu se fedele"

4. Un ballo in maschera, Atto III, Scena e romanza: "Forse la soglia attinse... Ma se m'è forza perderti"

5. Il trovatore, Parte III, Scena ed aria: "Ah! sì, ben mio... Di quella pira"

6. Luisa Miller, Atto II, Scena ed aria: "Oh! fede negar potessi... Quando le sere al placido"

7. Simon Boccanegra, Atto II: "O inferno! Amelia qui!... Sento avvampar nell'anima... Cielo pietoso, rendila"

8. Don Carlo, Atto II, Scena e duetto: "È lui! desso, l'Infante!... Dio, che nell'alma infondere"

9. La forza del destino, Atto III, Scena e romanza: "La vita è inferno all'infelice...O tu, che in seno agli angeli"

10. I masnadieri, Atto III, Scena: "Destatevi, o pietre... Giuri ognun questo canuto"

11. Otello, Atto III : "Dio! mi potevi scagliar"

12. Otello, Atto IV: "Niun mi tema"

13. Macbeth, Atto IV, Scena ed aria: "O figli, o figli miei!... Ah, la paterna mano"
