Editorial Reviews

Established as one of Virgin Classics bestselling artists, Philippe Jaroussky, who has been described as the Apollo of countertenors by Germany s Die Zeit, stands out among his many talented contemporaries as much for the sopranolike beauty of his tone as for the elegance and insight of his interpretations and his adventurous and erudite approach to repertoire whether unearthing neglected scores by little-known composers or venturing beyond the Baroque into the 19th and 20th centuries. Jaroussky s diverse achievements are celebrated in two new collections on Virgin Classics the 2-CD set The Voice and the DVD La Voix des rêves. Greatest moments in Concert. Displaying the breadth of his repertoire from Vivaldi, Handel and lesser-known masters of the Baroque to Faure, Hahn and even Tango King Ástor Piazzolla these two releases prove once again that there is much more to Jaroussky than the voice of an angel .
The Voice Best of Philippe Jaroussky is comprised of 31 tracks chosen by the singer himself and includes six previously unreleased tracks of music by Handel and Purcell.

Format: Audio CD
This "Best of" double CD offers 32 arias and duets sung by the young countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, in a collection, obviously chosen by the singer himself, which includes some of the most beautiful arias from his last decade of work. The album also gives 6 new highly interesting arias which Jaroussky hadn't found another opportunity to publish, some of which were recorded especially for this collection, obviously as a bonus gift from the singer to his audience. Here we find Handel's "Ombra mai fu" and "Venti, turbini", as well as Porpora's "Alto Giove" and Purcell's "Music for a while".

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.

Philippe Jaroussky is perhaps the best countertenor working today. This is a two disc compilation with a few newly recorded arias at a very reasonable price. It contains complete selections from many sources. for example, Philippe only sings the Pie Jesu in a complete Faure Requiem recording and it's here. This is recommendable in every way.

Words cannot do justice to the amazing quality of Phillipe's voice and his ability to express the music of the baroque is unsurpassed. Highly recommend this album.

Jaroussky is a rara avis, whose unique angelic voice transports one beyond space and time. This is a beautiful compilation that features an eclectic mix of some of his best performances. Recommended listening.

Jaroussky's voice is unbelievable. Great selection of repertoire on these two CDs, much of which hasn't been heard since the time of the castrati.
