"Also spurring each other to be their very best are today’s leading tenor-baritone bromance, Jonas Kaufmann and Ludovic Tézier. The German tenor is operatic royalty, in demand around the globe and able to pick and choose his roles in whichever house he fancies. Critics will argue which repertoire suits him best, but he’s proved himself in German, Italian and French operas and even took on the role of Peter Grimes this year. His good pal Tézier recently took his first foray into Wagnerian territory, singing Amfortas – opposite Kaufmann’s Parsifal, naturally – but is most associated with Italian roles. He is the reigning Verdi baritone de nos jours and his debut disc of arias deservedly won a Gramophone Award in 2021.
Kaufmann has now settled into the role of Otello, here flying off the handle with real anger. Iago is a newer role to Tézier (making his debut in 2021) but his account of Cassio’s dream is darkly insinuating and they let rip in the closing duet where they swear vengeance, ‘Sì, pel ciel marmoreo giuro!’ Montfort and Henri in Vêpres are not yet (to my knowledge) in Tézier or Kaufmann’s rep, but given their performances here I’d dearly love to see them in a revival of Stefan Herheim’s Royal Opera staging. There’s a nobility to their singing in the original French version, whereas Milnes and Domingo (in Italian) are much more brusque. With one of the world’s greatest Verdians, Antonio Pappano, pacing the music with his unerring sense of drama, the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia coat these Verdi duets in luxury wrapping."
