Notes & Reviews:

Sunday Times, 26th October 2014
Kaufmann sings more heroically than the lyric tenors Richard Tauber and Joseph Schmidt, who made songs by Lehar, Kalman, Stolz and co international hits. But it's thrilling to hear a Siegmund voice in Lehar's best-known Tauber Lied, You Are My Heart's Delight, and Freunde, das Leben ist Lebenswert.

BBC Music Magazine
Kaufmann offers a more intimate, less full-throated approach than [Tauber or Schmidt], but it's highly effective and both his musicianship and his attention to text are characteristically impeccable. Also noteworthy are the orchestrations, which - wherever possible - are the originals, and elsewhere stylish copies...Kaufmann devotees will find him the perfect matinee idol.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2014
It should be wonderful - and it sometimes is. Kaufmann certainly has the vocal range to deliver both the heroics of Kunneke's 'Lied vom Leben des Schrenk' and the close-to-the-mic smooch of Abraham's 'Diwanpuppchen'...But he sounds at times uncertain of what emotional line to take...But nobody in this country...should be put off a chance to hear such repertoire so well sung.

The Telegraph, 11th January 2015
It's hard not to be charmed by these plushly upholstered melodies, especially if they are consumed in small doses. Kaufmann is always an intelligently stylish singer, and here he cleverly lightens his timbre and manner to give each number...the appropriate air of easy and spontaneous sensuality...Aficionados of the genre will be enthralled.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
Better and more idiomatic performances can be had by the above mentioned singers. Many of the operetta selections can also be found in very good complete, highlights, or compilation recordings from EMI, CPO, and other labels. Kaufmann is a major force in opera and is an outstanding singer and performer. My expectations were high. I'm sure all of Kaufmann's legion of fans (including at least 20,000 Berliners) will embrace every note.
