Operatic tenor Jonas Kaufmann performs arias and scenes by Wagner with Donald Runnicles leading the Orchester der Deutschen Oper Berlin. Specially recorded for the Wagner anniversary year by the worlds leading Wagner tenor.

"Kaufmann and Wagner is a classic combination: For any Wagnerians whove been slumbering, Fafner-like, in their caves during the last few years, heres your wake-up call: Jonas Kaufmann is the tenor we've been waiting for." — Washington Post

Also includes scenes from Die Walkure, Siegfried , Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, Tannhauser and Lohengrin (extended Grail Scene Gralserzahlung — with its original second verse).

Joined by one of the most formidable combinations in the opera world today the chorus and orchestra of the Deutsche Oper, Berlin, under director Donald Runnicles this recording is also a sonic spectacular, made in Deccas time-honored tradition.
