Top Customer Reviews
The new recording demonstrate that this highly gifted singer has developed his voice and singing even further in the last few years - his tone is possibly even more pure and sweet than before in the highest register, his coloratura, always legato, of a stunning accuracy. As impressive are Jaroussky's always authentic and sincere expression of the content of the music, his wide spectrum of voice colours, his perfect phrasing or his impressive musicality.
The selection on this album gives everything from arias by Rossi and Bassani rediscovered by Jaroussky, via treasures by Caldara, J.C. Bach and others, of course favourite arias by Vivaldi ("Vedro con mio diletto", "Sento in seno") and Handel ("Scherza infida" and the breathtakingly sweet "Mi lusinga"), to pieces by Hahn, Fauré and other newer composers. It also includes church music by a variety of composers, including Monteverdi and Sances ("Stabat Mater").
Of course all the ensembles, the singers in the duets (especially the sweet voiced Nuria Rial) and the acoustical quality of this CD are excellent.Read more ›
