The recording of German arias “Sehnsucht” by tenor Jonas Kaufmann – “surely the finest of the world’s young tenors” (Daily Mail) – is released in Germany and immediately rises to the top of the classical music charts. Chris Alder produced the album in Parma in November 2008. Kaufmann is partnered by the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Claudio Abbado. Chris Alder produces a new recording of works by de Falla with the Spanish National Orchestra and their principal conductor Josep Pons, the first of a wide-ranging series of discs for Universal Music, Spain with that orchestra over the next few years.
