Esteemed tenor, Jonas Kaufmann, returns with his sensational new album “WIEN”. This must-have album showcases the crowd-pleasing evergreens that turned Vienna into a beloved capital of classical music. “WIEN” features a stunning collection of operetta hits and Viennese songs composed between 1870 and 1950 – Kaufmann teams up with the world renowned Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and Adam Fisher. Vienna’s heyday for operetta produced stage-hits such as Johann Strauß’s ‘Komm in die Gondel’ (from Eine Nacht in Venedig / A Night in Venice) the ‘Clock Duet’ from Die Fledermaus and the ‘Title duet’ from Wiener Blut, as well as Franz Léhar’s ‘Lippen Schweigen’ from The Merry Widow. The city also inspired many timeless songs including Robert Stolz’s ‘Im Prater blühn wieder die Bäume’ and Rudolf Siecznski’s ‘Wien, Wien nur du allein’, Hans May’s ‘Heut ist der Schönste Tag’; Hermann Leopoldi’s ‘In einem kleinen Café in Hernals’ and Georg Kreisler’s ‘Der Tod muss ein Wiener sein’ – to name a few of these charming songs championed down the years by the tenor-greats such as Richard Tauber, Rudolf Schock & Fritz Wunderlich – Kaufmann has won numerous prestigious awards including Gramophone Awards and Echo Klassik Awards.
