Juan Diego Flórez
" The new King of high - C "
In his versatile concerts, Juan Diego sings arias from Mozart and Donizetti, a selection of the big arias from La Bohème, as well as popular songs like Granada. During the encores he accompanies himself on the guitar and sings lighter repertoire.
He frequently chats with the audience, gaining cheers and laughter – his concert evenings offer a great variety, entertainment on its highest level!
In 2019 and 2020, Juan Diego will tour through Germany, Switzerland and Austria performing the most beloved Verdi arias in " VIVA VERDI ! ".
" Divas are forever "
Angela Gheorghiu established herself early on as one of the world's leading opera stars and retains every bit of her talent – her voice shows not a trace of fatigue.
In late 2018, Angela Gheorghiu published her first biography "A Life for Art", for which she has given popular autograph sessions at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London. She recently released a remarkable album on Warner Eternamente, which received great reviews (“'With Angela Gheorghiu in such spectacular voice, this rewarding collection of verismo opera arias is hard to ignore”)! Following the well-regarded Puccini Award in December, she was additionally rewarded the Global Star Award at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, in March 2019.
2020 will bring Angela to the US, where she is going to give concerts in Boston, Kansas and New York.
Sir Bryn Terfel
" Superb " (The Guardian)
Bryn Terfel is not only famous for his impressive vocal skills, but also for his unique acting skills. On stage, he charms the audience by displaying the strength, the technique as well as the delicacy he can show in certain repertoire.
Sir Bryn is a Grammy, Classical Brit and Gramophone Award winner with a discography encompassing operas of Mozart, Wagner and Strauss, and more than fifteen solo discs including Lieder, American musical theatre, Welsh songs and sacred repertory.
"If God had a singing voice, it would sound a lot like Andrea Bocelli" (Celine Dion)
Superstar Andrea Bocelli is without a doubt one of the most sought-after classical singers on the recording market: with more than 80 million albums sold worldwide, he is the most successful classical solo artist of all time. After none other than Luciano Pavarotti, he was the first tenor to finish first in the US hit parade! His concerts are large events - Andrea Bocelli touches people's hearts and minds in a wonderful way.
For over 30 years, we have had the pleasure of working alongside the unparalleled tenor José Carreras, organising and collaborating on countless concerts worldwide, successful open air concerts and television appearances as well as books, CDs and DVDs, which have received numerous awards.
One of the greatest moments of this close collaboration was Kupfer Kultur & Media's co-production of the opera "EL JUEZ" (eng. the judge), which was written by famed Austrian composer Christian Kolonovits and developed with José Carreras in mind and was performed worldwide to great international acclaim.
Moreover, Mr. Kupfer is proud to be a supporter of Mr. Carreras in his most noble task, the Josep Carreras Leukemia Foundation, since its inception.
We would like to extend our gratitude for a 34-year partnership!

Ein Triumph für Flórez im Konzerthaus
"Strahlende Höhen, schier end- und mühelose Phrasierungen und all das mit einer Geschmeidigkeit und Leichtigkeit präsentiert, die ihresgleichen suchen: Juan Diego Flórez ließ im Konzerthaus eine Herausforderung des Tenorfachs auf die andere folgen, Schlag auf Schlag, wie dies nur wenige an einem Abend bewältigen, geschweige denn auf derart überragende Weise."
November 16, 2019
"Er tut das, was er tut, mit einer solchen Überzeugung und einem solchen Können, dass der lang anhaltende Beifall zum Schluss absolut verdient ist. Die Ovationen steigern sich im Laufe der Zugaben zu einem wahren Begeisterungssturm"

Widmann, Znaider, Terfel: The best classical music concerts this week
"... he has audiences eating out of his hand."
February 9, 2019
"...it was the pacing of energy that was most fascinating. Flórez knows how to work a crowd. Of course we knew that it was going to be great going into the concert, but we didn’t realize how great."

Vocal Fireworks Dominate
Gheorghiu - Grigólo Recital
There’s a lot of Maria Callas in Angela Gheorghiu. Her soprano possesses the same amber hue that can soar lyrically or cut like a spinto blade. Her Floria Tosca, like Callas’s, is a force to be reckoned with. She also can go comfortably into her lower register, as she demonstrated in her opening aria, “L’amour est un oiseau rebelle” from Carmen.

Angela Gheorghiu in Imperious Form for a Very Special Tosca at Semperoper
"Gheorghiu soon got resolutely into her stride and her voice, blessed with significant power, communicated a generous emotional range (...). Tosca’s famous Act II aria ‘Vissi d’arte’ was show-stopping, sung so affectingly by Gheorghiu producing a level of despair and sense of loneliness rarely achieved and the audience loved it."
June 10, 2019
"Flórez’s Werther, very much the impulsive romantic dreamer and less self-pitying than some, is at his best in moments of brooding introspection and uneasy calm. Lorsque l’Enfant Revient du Voyage touches us with its sad eloquence, and his hushed way with the death scene is extraordinarily moving. "

Angela Gheorghiu and Teodor Ilincăi:
Las Voces del Real at Teatro Real Madrid
Gheorghiu retains every bit of her talent, and the voice shows not a trace of fatigue. Her soprano flows like melting honey at her command, she phrases with subtlety and finesse, she toys with a middle register of enormous beauty, and her trademark feather light pianissimi are as scintillating as ever. At every turn she displays sensitivity and intelligence.

Il barbiere di Siviglia:
Flórez triumphs as Almaviva in Vienna
Juan Diego Flórez, the greatest Rossini tenor of his generation, returned to Vienna as Count Almaviva (...). His Almaviva was nothing short of spectacular (...). At the end of Act 2 he graced the audience with “Cessa di più resistere”, the fiendishly difficult aria that has become one of his trademarks. He performed it with great momentum, diving into the coloratura, with incredible precision and elegance, and splendid high notes. The ovation that followed was endless, with the other singers applauding him from the stage.
