Info for La vanità del mondo

The counter-tenor 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 such as Concerto Köln, l’Ensemble Matheus, Les Arts Florissants, Les Musiciens du Louvre-Grenoble, Orfeo 55, Le Concert d’Astrée, L’Arpeggiata, Le Cercle de l’Harmonie, Europa Galante, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, I Barrochisti, Freiburger Barockorchester, Appolo’s Fire, Anima Eterna ou encore le Venice Baroque Orchestra. He has performed to high acclaim in the most prestigious festivals and concert halls around the world.

Philippe Jaroussky
The countertenor Philippe Jaroussky - a little over 30 years old - has already established himself as one of the major singers in the international musical world as confirmed by the French Victoires de la Musique, broadcast live on National TV ("Revelation Artiste Lyrique" in 2004, "Artiste lyrique de l'année" in 2007 and in 2010, CD of the year 2009) and the Echo Klassik Awards in Germany in 2008 in Munich.

His technique allows him the most audacious nuances and impressive pyrotechnics. Philippe Jaroussky has an extremely large repertoire in the baroque area, from the refinements of the italian Seicento with Monteverdi, Sances and Rossi to the staggering brilliance of Handel or Vivaldi's music - the latter being the composer he mostly sang these last few years. Philippe Jaroussky has lately decided to explore a very different repertoire both contemporary and modern with the pianist Jerôme Ducros. As a result, they are performing the melodies composed by Marc André Dalbavie from the poems of Louise Labbé and the french melodies of the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, in many countries including the UK, Germany, the US etc.

Philippe Jaroussky has worked with the best baroque orchestras such as Ensemble Matheus, Les Arts Florissants, Les Musiciens du Louvre, Le Concert d'Astrée, L'Arpeggiata, Le Cercle de l'Harmonie and Europa Galante with conductors such as William Christie, Jean-Christophe Spinosi, Marc Minkowski, René Jacobs, Christina Pluhar, Jérémie Rhorer, Emmanuelle Haïm, Jean-Claude Malgoire or Fabio Biondi ...

He has been praised in all the most prestigious concert halls and theaters in France - Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Théâtre du Châtelet, Salle Pleyel, Salle Gaveau, Opéra de Lyon, Opéra de Montpellier, Opéra de Nancy, Arsenal de Metz, Théâtre de Caen...) and abroad - The Barbican Center and Southbank Center in London, Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels, Grand Théâtre du Luxembourg, Konzerthaus in Vienna, Staatsoper and Philharmonie in Berlin, Teatro Real in Madrid, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York ...)

He recently joined Cecilia Bartoli in Salzburg as Sesto for stage performances of Haendel's Giulio Cesare. He will appear with Andrea Marcon and Venice Baroque Orchestra in 2013 after his sabbatical nine months.

In 2002 he founded l'Ensemble Artaserse, which performs music all over Europe.

Philippe Jaroussky has received many awards for his recordings. For Heroes (Vivaldi's Opera arias), he has received a Gold disc in 2007, has been awarded a Diapason d'Or, a 10 by Classica-Repertoire, a Choc of the Magazine Monde de la Musique, the Timbre de Platine from Opera International, and a Gramaphone Award.

His CD Tribute to Carestini (with le Concert d'Astrée and Emmanuelle Haim) was awarded CD of the Year at the Victoires de la Musique in 2008 and at the Midem Classical Awards in 2009.

In January 2009, the CD Teatro d'Amore devoted to Monteverdi with L'Arpeggiata and Christina Pluhar was an immediate best seller. A few month later, his surprising CD Opium (French melodies) was once again an international success.

His latest recording La Dolce Fiamma is dedicated to forgotten castrato arias by Johann Christian Bach and was recorded with Le Cercle de l'Harmonie under Jérémie Rhorer. He is also on Arpeggiata's latest March release "Via Crucis".

The Tribute to Carestini and La Dolce Fiamma have both gone gold.

He has been awarded his fourth "Victoire de la Musique" in 2010 (singer of the year).
