ARTASERSE

Philippe Jaroussky

In 2002, after many collaborations in the most prestigious baroque ensembles in France and Europe, several musicians decided to form the Ensemble Artaserse. Those friends were Christine Plubeau (viola da gamba), Claire Antonini (theorbe), Yoko Nakamura (harpsichord and organ) and, of course, Philippe Jaroussky (counter-tenor). They gave in october 2002 a first and highly-acclaimed concert in the Theatre du Palais-Royal in Paris, with the Musiche a voce sola by the Italian composer Benedetto Ferrari. This music was immediately recorded and released by the French label Ambroisie, receiving then very prestigious awards (Diapason-decouverte by the magazine Diapason, 10 de Classica-Repertoire, Timbre de diamant by the magazine Opera International etc.). Soon, other musicians joined Artaserse, for instance Raul Orellana, first violin. Artaserse have now established a reputation as one of the most exciting period instrument ensembles.
With this ability to adapt to numerous repertoires including music by Antonio Vivaldi or George Friedric Handel, the ensemble performed progressively in the most famous venues and festivals in France and abroad.
Artaserse have been invited to perform in the most prestigious venues, series, festivals all over the word , Europe, Asia, North and South America with such success.

Artaserse has collaborated with such great singers in the last seasons : the countertenor Andreas Scholl, the contraltos Marie-Nicole Lemieux and Nathalie Stutzmann, the sopranos Cecilia Bartoli and Emöke Barath.

The ensemble’s discography includes Benedetto Ferrari’s Musiche a voce sola (Ambroisie-Naïve) and two very acclaimed albums for Virgin Classics : Virtuoso cantatas by Vivaldi and Beata Vergine with 17th century Italian music devoted to the Virgin Mary (Timbre de Platine of Opera International etc), then Vivaldi Pietà for Erato-Warner Classics, the somptuous Händel album, which has acclaimed Philippe Jaroussky’s art. The last one was devoted to Francesco Cavalli and has released on April 2019.
