Listing Detail Tabs

The rise of the countertenor is one of the major musical developments of the early 21st century, and French singer Philippe Jaroussky has been at the heart of it. He not only has a glorious voice, creamy, with multiple shades, yet somehow with the fragility to take on Baroque opera's doomed heroines; he has the dramatic sense and an exquisite injured quality necessary for the opera genre, Vivaldi, which is what he's best known for, is somewhat shortchanged. Nevertheless, this is a very good place to start with Jaroussky if you've bypassed him. The selections are drawn from albums Jaroussky made between 2004 and 2011. Needless to say, he's in fine voice throughout, and the collection covers his major Baroque specialties as well as selections from Opium, his 2009 release covering French late Romantic music. These take up the bulk of the second half of disc 1, and a few might have been left out to in order to bulk up the Baroque areas. On the plus side, however, are the new recordings that are included; Jaroussky fans will be convinced of the rightness of their purchase from the new opening track, Nicola Porpora's Alto giove. Listen and enjoy.
Alto Giove
Vanne perdida... Fra le procelle
E vivo ancora... Scherza, infida
Per sì bella speranza... Sento con qual diletto
Tutto fa nocchiero esperto
Tu che d'ardir m'accendi
Cor ingrato dispietato
Ardendo suspiro... Jam gratae memoriae
Ebben si vada.. Io ti lascio
Ninna nanna alla Napoletana
À Chloris
Sombrero
Sur une tombe
Los pájaros perdidos
Pie Jesu
Lasciate Averno
Track Listing - Disc 2
Frondi tenere... Ombra ma fu
Vedrò con mio diletto
Venti, turbini
Chi d'amor tra le catene
Non tremar, vassallo indegno
Mentre dormi amor fomenti
Chi scopre al mio pensiero... Mi lusinga il dolce affetto
Tutti nemici e rei
Sento in seno ch'in pioggia di lagrime
Music for a while
La legge accetto
Sentimi non partir... Al mio bene
Laudate Dominum (from Selve morale e spirituale)
O quam tristis
Ave Regina coelorum
Pur ti miro
