The opera world has seen the return of a lost voice, the one so valuable of the counter tenor. And since Alfred Deller, what an amazing evolution! The technique has been enriched allowing voices to flourish. Philippe Jaroussky is probably one of the most gifted of his generation and certainly one of the most beautiful timbres that can be heard on stage today. His crystal-clear highs and purity of line allows his voice simultaneously to play on a wide expressive range. While the repertoire remains that of baroque several wonderful operas have been reproduced in theaters after a long absence thanks to the enthusiasm of this great artist! His extensive discography reflects the contribution to the operas of Monteverdi, Handel and Vivaldi but especially the great rediscoveries like the extravagant Artaserse by Leonardo da Vinci with an entirely male cast as was customary at the opera in Rome in the eighteenth century.
Philippe Jaroussky is also at home in the French melody which he successfully defends in recitals. Whether in concert version or staged, works defended by the French counter tenor are always wonderful discoveries or revelations in the best-known repertoire. A rare voice for an exceptional repertoire, here is one of the best reasons to rush for tickets with Philippe Jaroussky in performance.
