Deutsche Grammophon has announced Jonathan Tetelman’s second album “The Great Puccini.”
The new album presents extracts from nine operas, including such well-known arias as “Nessun dorma,” “Che gelida manina,” and “E lucevan le stelle,” as well as numbers from less familiar operas such as “Le villi” and “La rondine.” Tetelman is joined by the PKF – Prague Philharmonia, conductor Carlo Rizzi, and sopranos Vida Miknevičiūtė (Giorgetta in “Il tabarro”) and Federica Lombardi (Mimì in “La bohème”).
In a statement, Tetelman noted, “I think it’s a lot about acting with the voice, not just with the body.”
The new album will be accompanied by three music videos made on location in Tuscany which will be released in August and September.
“The Great Puccini” will be issued in all formats on September 29, 2023.
