German Tenor Jonas Kaufmann introduces My Italy, a very special concert-documentary. Puccini & Verdi are not the main composers chosen for the event, however, but rather the golden hits by Nino Rota & Lucio Dalla. The concert is from Teatro Carignano in Torino, with the participation of the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI conducted by Jochen Rieder. Kaufmann performs popular classic italian songs like “Torna a Surriento”, “Core ’ngrato”, “Mattinata”, “Parla più piano”, “Caruso” and “Il canto”. The film shows Kaufmann’s special relationship with the Italian language, the Italian way of life & culture - and of course, the music. "Italian music has the power to produce beautiful immortal melodies - bright and full of warmth - those you can’t get out of your head all day” JONAS KAUFMANN
