Kaufmann/Joswig: grounded despite the hype

A wonderful video featuring tenor Jonas Kaufmann and his wife mezzo-soprano Margareta Joswig talking about their lives as singers. Kaufmann has a reputation for being grounded despite the media hype. You can see why from this video.

Addendum on 10 April, 2014 :
Sad to hear that Kaufmann and Joswig have separated. All the best to both of them.

April 2015: sorry folks, the delightful video (I think from a German TV station)  has disappeared from YouTube.

Instead, here are two videos from this pair who were long united. Wonderful as ever.

Kaufmann singing the Wesendonck Lieder

Joswig singing Lobe, Zion, deinen Gott ...
