Last quote by Jonas Kaufmann

Yes, I'm playing a great hero, again. Of course, I have often sung Don Carlos, it's not the first time, but it's the first time I'm doing it in French, and that's a game-changer.feedback

Jonas Kaufmann quotes

Jan 03 2016

He was quite extravagant with the ending, which he completely made up. In Berlioz's fantasy, Faust rides off with Mephisto, into the abyss, into hell, and there they are welcomed with satanic chants.feedback

Jan 03 2016

Berlioz never intended to write an opera, not even an entire piece of music, just some sequences. It is really an atypical piece for the stage but at the same time there is an incredible intensity in this music.feedback

Bryn is a fantastic singer, a great bass-baritone, who has so many incredible qualities, who can sing Parlando really well, who can push the limits, but who also has this incredible soft and enticing quality to his voice.feedback

The way in which the orchestration is produced, is simply brilliant. It's as if Beethoven takes you by the hand and step by step he leads you down into the prison. It gets darker, wetter and more frightening until you get to the darkest dungeon of them all, Florestan's cell.feedback

As soon as Elisabetta is close by he just [acts]... Again, [Don Carlo] a very easy character to find a lot of different things in it; to organise it, and to bring it all to one line, that's another story.feedback

You have to decide now for things that are planned in five or six years' time, which gives you a kind of secure feeling. On the other hand it's insane – this is an art form, and art has to be free, art has to be spontaneous. Go and ask an important painter to choose the colours for a painting he will do in five years' time. Who knows in which phase he might be in five years, maybe he doesn't even need colours any more!feedback
