JONAS KAUFMANN ("The world's greatest tenor" - The Telegraph) releases "The Sound of Movies" on Sony Classical on September 15, 2023. Great songs from classic movies have been a passion of Jonas Kaufmann throughout his life, and his new album celebrates that with almost a century of unforgettable movie songs that have thrilled global audiences and includes hit songs from classic movies West Side Story, Gladiator, Cinema Paradiso, The Sound of Music, Les Misérables, The Mission, The Great Caruso, Singin' in the Rain, Once upon a Time in America, Breakfast at Tiffany's and many more!

Newly recorded in spectacular sound with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra and Choir, conducted by Jochen Rieder, Kaufmann is also joined on three tracks by the acclaimed guitarist Milos Karadaglic. The album also features the world premiere song of The Cider House Rules theme by Oscarr-winning composer Rachel Portman.

"Immersing yourself in this world for a few hours and forgetting everything around you is incredibly fascinating - similar to the theater or opera," Kaufmann says about classic film music. "I've traveled a lot over many years, often alone for weeks and months in foreign cities at the other end of the world. In addition to museums, it was the cinema - that great opportunity to entertain yourself when you're alone - that captured my imagination."

The standard jewelcase includes a personal introduction from Jonas Kaufmann and full booklet note in English, German and French.
