Philippe Jaroussky In-depth Biography

Philippe Jaroussky} is arguably the most prominent French countertenor to have emerged from the turn of the twenty first century era. He has mainly focused on early music}, showing a preference particularly for the works of Monteverdi}, Vivaldi}, Handel}, and many lesser-known seventeenth and eighteenth century composers. He has appeared and recorded extensively with his own instrumental ensemble, Artaserse}, as well as with the leading conductors associated with early and Baroque} music, including Jean-Claude Malgoire}, Rene Jacobs}, and Jean Tubéry}.

Jaroussky} was born in Maisons Lafitte (northwest of Paris), France, on January 13, 1978. He first studied violin, and later piano. He enrolled at the Paris Conservatory, where he graduated with a diploma in violin performance from the Ancient Music department there. In 1996 he began vocal studies with soprano Nicole Fallien} and three years later debuted at the music festivals in Royaumont and Ambronay, where he sang in the Alessandro Scarlatti} oratorio} Sedecia, rè di Gerusalemme}. A critically acclaimed recording derived from these performances was released shortly afterward on Virgin Classics}.

The following year, Jaroussky} appeared in the Monteverdi} operatic trilogy Orfeo}, Il Ritorno d'Ulisse}, and Incoronazione di Poppea} under conductor Jean-Claude Malgoire}. In 2001 Jaroussky}'s schedule swelled with major appearances all over France and abroad: he sang {%Arbace} in Vivaldi}'s opera} Catone in Utica} and also appeared in performances of Pergolesi}'s Stabat Mater}. A widely praised two-CD album of the Catone production was issued in 2002 on the Dynamic Italy} label.

Jaroussky}'s meteoric rise continued with his critically praised portrayal of {%Nero} in Handel}'s Agrippina} at the Théâtre des Champs Elysées} in Paris in 2003. This production was also captured on record by Dynamic Italy}, the release coming the following year, and again drawing generally positive notices.

In the early years of the new century, Jaroussky} created his own instrumental ensemble, Artaserse}, which consists of five players performing on early instruments. He has made several recordings with the group, including the 2005 CD entitled Vivaldi -- Virtuoso Cantatas}, on the Virgin Classics} label, and the 2006 issue of Bassani}'s Beata Virgine}, also on Virgin Classics}.

Jaroussky}'s busy performance schedule in 2006 included appearances throughout Europe and England, including highly successful concerts at Vancouver's Christ Church Cathedral and at London's South Bank Early Music Weekend}, both with his ensemble Artaserse}. Jaroussky} has also continued making numerous operatic and solo/orchestral concert appearances at major venues throughout Europe. ~ Robert Cummings, All Music Guide
