Notes & Reviews:
When Philippe Jaroussky - whose angelic voice seems almost timeless - sings works by Telemann and Bach, it becomes abundantly clear that the sheer emotional force and the purifying power of their music have not diminished one bit over the centuries.
Philippe Jaroussky has established himself as the most admired countertenor of his generation, as confirmed by the French 'Victoires de la Musique' awards and multiple Echo Klassik Awards in Germany.
"Performing sacred music gives me the feeling of encountering something that is bigger than myself. It is an unknown force that surpasses me. I think we can all have this feeling, even if we are not religious. The cantatas of Telemann and Bach lend themselves to that because they raise philosophical questions concerning the place of humans, death and the meaning of our lives on earth. Listening to this music inevitably compels the audience to think about these questions as well." -Philippe Jaroussky
