Event details
 

With his pure water timbre and a supple and agile voice, Philippe Jaroussky is the most essential countertenor of his generation. His perfect technical mastery and his disarming ease allow him the most daring and perilous nuances, and this in the most extreme repertoires, those of Handel as Kaija Saariaho recently. More and more present on lyrical stages, he continues to appear in the more intimate exercise of the recital in the company of the Artaserse Ensemble, his instrumental accomplice for many years. His new programme is built around the "Seicento", a period when two geniuses, Claudio Monteverdi and Francesco Cavalli, reign majestically. The famous lamenti of the latter should find in the interpretation of the countertenor all the weightlessness of suspended time necessary. The melodic imagination and astonishing dramatic sense of these great names of the ancient repertoire should be at the party tonight.
