Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A first-rate recital of rare cantatas and operatic arias . . . . Philippe Jaroussky is described as a countertenor, but in his tone and vocal range he sounds more like a soprano. He soars as effortlessly as a bird, with no sense of strain: perhaps –- for we can never know for certain -– this is how the great castrati of the 18th century sounded. . . . Philippe Jaroussky . . . is sweet-toned, and as well as singing the divisions with wonderful control he shows care for the meaning of the words. The aria from Tito Manlio, which really was written for contralto, finds him duetting with the cello obbligato of Emilia Gliozzi – superb!" -- Richard Lawrence, Gramophone "A first-rate recital of rare cantatas and operatic arias . . . .
