The tenor has cancelled concert in Barcelona and Lucerne over the next week. His doctor has strictly ordered him not to sing, says the sick note. The withdrawals punch a hole in the promotion schedule for Kaufmann’s Sony schmaltz album.

The German director Willy Decker, 64, has withdrawn from Zurich’s Turn of the Screw ‘on health grounds’.

It’s that time of year.



  • Mr Kaufmann canceled the Verdi Requiem in Milan plus scheduled lieder concerts in Budapest, Barcelona and Lucerne – nothing to do with his operetta album.

  • MissPrinteditions says:

    Ha, ha: ‘Sony schmaltz album’; love it.

  • Erika Collins says:

    Jonas Kaufmann cancelled La Scala Verdi Requiem and Liederabend Budapest, Barcelona and Lucerne.
    The promotion Tour for the Sony Album will start in April 2015
