Kaufmann’s latest: a sneak preview

Megatenor Jonas Kaufmann’s next album is of Verismo arias – from ‘Cav & Pag’ et al. Of course it’s going to be available in Germany well before being released here, something that seems a tad bizarre in these days of globalisation – especially as if we can’t wait for it we can just order it online from the German branch of Amazon. Do you ever get the feeling that technology moves a great deal faster than people – despite being created by them?

Here’s a sneak preview which Decca has just popped onto Youtube. Enjoy.
