Once in a generation comes a tenor who goes beyond a glorious voice and superstar charisma, and takes everything he performs to another level. When Jonas Kaufmann sang with Andris Nelsons at the 2010 Bayreuth Festival, one critic described his performance as “sublime”. So the CBSO are thrilled to welcome Kaufmann to Birmingham, to perform the music that he sings better than anyone alive: the songs of Mahler and Strauss. Book early for one of the high points of their season.
