Jonas Kaufmann has announced his latest album for Sony Classical.
For his new album, entitled “Insieme,” the tenor is teaming up with baritone Ludovic Tézier for opera duets from some of the most popular operas.
In a statement on social media, the tenor said, “performing with my colleague and friend, French baritone Ludovic Tézier is always a pleasure. I am pleased that today, we can announce our new album – a collection of great duets from “La Forza del Destino,” “Otello,” “Don Carlos,” “Les Vêpres Siciliennes,” “La Gioconda” and “La Bohème.” Recording these pieces with Antonio Pappano and the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome was a wonderful experience. We had lots of fun, and I hope you‘ll like the album as much as we do.
Kaufmann and Tézier have collaborated throughout the years on such operas “La Forza del Destino,” “Tosca,” “Aida,” “Don Carlos,” and “Werther,” among many others.
“Insieme” is set to be released on Oct. 7, 2022.
