One of Jonas Kaufmann's first recordings, the opera "Ekkehard by Johann Joseph Abert (SWR / Capriccio 1998) was just rereleased.
"In this great historic opera that seems a bit like a score by Ambroise Thomas, he [Jonas Kaufmann] manages to make his character feel a bit like Lohengrin, with a tenor voice then much less somber than today. However, the romantic hero is there, juvenile and virile, but with that bit of dreamy fragility that makes him irresistible." - Laurent Bury, Forumopera
