Product Description

CD89429 Jonas Kaufmann, Reykjavik, Harpa, 21 May 2011

I recorded this in wav with my laptop from a web stream of 96 kbit/s, converted to Vbr 150-240 which is the highest Vbr Adobe Audition can do. If that isn't enough just stay off from downloading it. (Actually I find the new rules about bitrates quite a bit annoying if I'm allowed to say this). This is sure not the best quality you can get, but of course I can't post my own recording :-) in this group.

There was no chance to inform the group about the upcoming broadcast in time. I first heard about the broadcast when I talked to some guys from Iceland radio right after the concert had ended.

Just in case that there is anyone from Iceland in this group, no matter if active or not active, please contact me. The concert will be on TV later and I want to find someone who can record and upload or at least record for me on DVD which I would of course upload.

After Jonas great Siegmund and LvdE in Berlin another big success. He was told before that he wouldn't need more than two encores, because nobody does more than two in Reykjavik, but as usual we got four encores.

The sold out concert took place at the just opened concert hall "Harpa".

Conductor: Peter Schrottner

Verdi: I vespri siciliani, orchestra Puccini: Recondita armonia (Tosca) Bizet: Carmen, orchestra Bizet: La Fleur (Carmen) Massenet: Pourquoi me reveiller (Werther) Mascagni: Cavalleria rusticana, orchestra Mascagni: Addio alla madre (Cavalleria rusticana)

The orchestra told Jonas before that he wouldn't need to rehearse more than 2 encores, because it never happens that a singer has to do more than 2, but of course we got 4.

E lucevan le stelle Lamento di Federico Non ti scordar di me Dein ist mein ganzes Herz

The broadcast left out two orchestra pieces.

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
