Notes & Reviews:
"A fine set that overcomes the many problems posed by this magical opera...Best is Jonas Kaufman's Huon. The tenor is supposed to possess the heft of a Tannhäuser while performing graceful flourishes in the manner of Rossini's Count Almaviva. Kaufman brings all the lyrical sweetness and technical skill for that part of it, and can still produce extra power and ring for the heroics." -Gramophone
