Philippe JAROUSSKY

Contre-ténor

Test citation Philippe Jaroussky

The countertenor Philippe Jaroussky has established himself as one of the major singers in the international musical world as confirmed by the French Victoires de la Musique ("Revelation Artiste Lyrique" in 2004, "Artiste lyrique de l'année" in 2007 and 2010) and at the Echo Klassik Awards in Germany in 2008 in Munich (Singer of the Year), in 2009 in Dresden (with L’Arpeggiata) and again in 2016 in Berlin.
An impressive mastery of vocal technique allows performances full of nuance and vocal acrobatics . Philippe Jaroussky’s vast repertoire of the Baroque era ranges from the refinements of the Italian Seicento with Monteverdi, Sances and Rossi to the staggering brilliance of Handel and Vivaldi; the latter being one of the most performed composers by Philippe recently. Philippe Jaroussky is also tirelessly at the forefront of musical researches and made strong contributions to the discovery – or rediscovery – of composers such as Caldara, Porpora, Steffani, Telemann or Johann Christian Bach.
Lately, he has also explored very different repertoire of French melodies accompanied by the pianist Jerôme Ducros. He has recently proposed his own vision of Berlioz' Les Nuits d'Été with performances at the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid and at the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg.
Increasingly captivated by contemporary works, Jaroussky performed a song cycle composed by Marc André Dalbavie from the sonnets of Louise Labbé. He premiered the opera Only the Sound remains of Kaija Saariaho, specifically written for his voice, at Nederlande Opera Ballet in Amsterdam in March 2016.
Philippe Jaroussky has had the pleasure of collaborating with some of the best baroque ensembles. He has performed to high acclaim in the most prestigious festivals and concert halls around the world.
In 2002 he founded l'Ensemble Artaserse, which currently performs throughout Europe.

On January 2017, Philippe inaugurated the new ElbPhilharmonie in Hamburg. He was invited as first artist in residence. 2019-2020 season marked his 20-years career with some major events such as the entrance of his statue to the Musée Grévin in Paris, the publication of the biographical book Seule la musique compte and finally the release of a disc anthology Passion Philippe Jaroussky.

March 2021 saw Philippe Jaroussky's debut as conductor at the head of his Artaserse ensemble, with no singing, with the production of Scarlatti's oratorio, Primo Omicidio. This programme is performed among others at Salzburg Festival and at Montpellier Opera, which will become the residence of Philippe and his ensemble Artaserse for the next three seasons.
2022 confirms this new activity as conductor, with numerous concerts in Paris, Lyon, Montpellier, Budapest, at Epau and Halle Festivals.
At end of May and beginning of June 2022, in Paris and Montpellier, Philippe conducted his first opera in the pit, Händel Giulio Cesare with a superlative singers cast : Sabine Devielhe, Gaëlle Arquez, Franco Fagioli, Carlo Vistoli, Lucile Richardot.

During 2022-23 season, Philippe will conduct the stage production of Sartorio Orfeo at Montpellier Opera. At the opera again, he will perform the role of Ruggiero in the production of Alcina by Händel alongside Cecilia Bartoli in Monte-Carlo. In addition, Philippe will be in recital across the Atlantic with guitarist Thibaut Garcia at Cervantino Festival in Guanajuato and at Bellas Artes in Mexico City, with Les Violons du Roy and Marie-Nicole Lemieux in Montreal and Quebec. He will join his Artaserse ensemble for concerts in Boston, San Diego and Toronto, and will finally be with Arpeggiata and Christina Pluhar at Carnegie Hall in New York.
