tenor

June 3, 2019. To commemmorate the 75th anniversary of the Allied Invasion of Normandy, known as D-day, which takes place on June 6th, WRTI presents our Classical Album of the Week, "Requiem: The Pity of War," the latest recording by English tenor Ian Bostridge, with Antonio Pappano at the piano.

What does it take to be an opera superstar? Jonas Kaufmann should know. He's been called "the world's greatest tenor."

Kaufmann has the voice. He's also got the onstage charisma, the movie-star good looks, the ambition, even a little controversy — and a brand new album.
