Winterstürme Wichen Dem Wonnemond by Joans Kaufmann

I am not a fan of Wagner.  Jonas Kaufmann eloquently said that, as a child, Wagner’s music resembled shouting giants.  He is not wrong.  And yet, Jonas Kaufmann can make shouting giants sound appealing.  It may even make me look forward to the Cleveland Orchestra’s performance of Tristan Und Isolde.

Oh, he has marvelous diction.  If I spoke German, I could probably understand what he was saying.
