Notes & Reviews:

Established as one of Virgin Classics' bestselling artists, Philippe Jaroussky, who has been described as "the Apollo of countertenors" by Germany's A Die Zeit, stands out among his many talented contemporaries as much for the soprano like 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 Fauré, 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. The DVD, La Voix des rêves: Greatest moments in Concert, features video footage from a number of live performances and interviews with an array of fellow musicians he has performed with including Christina Pluhar, Quatuor Ebène, Gautier Capuçon and Renaud Capuçon.

The New York Times Magazine
Jaroussky's exceptionally pure voice, combined with his cherubic good looks, have won him a passionate following.

The Boston Globe
As male singers who make their home in the musical stratosphere, countertenors are already a rarefied bunch, but Philippe Jaroussky is something of a wild orchid among them. His voice combines a limpid purity of timbre, a weightless agility, and an elegant control of nuance that allows him to shade a single phrase with a multitude of colors.

The Los Angeles Times
The fireworks really ignited whenever Jaroussky took the stage... he owns a winning stage presence and a pure, radiant countertenor/ soprano voice.
