Virtuoso cantati by Vivaldi

Concert-goers are still buzzing over counter-tenor Philippe Jaroussky’s dazzling Canadian début at Festival Vancouver two years ago. Now this bright young virtuoso is back from Paris with a vocal maturity and finesse that has been wowing European audiences and critics. He is accompanied by his own instrumental group, Ensemble Artaserse, noted for its warm, elegant sound and impeccable technique. They appear together on a recent critically-acclaimed recording of virtuoso Vivaldi cantati. Much of that repertoire will be in tonight’s Cathedral program, promising an unforgettable live musical experience.
“Jaroussky compels recognition as the impassioned messenger of Vivaldi." Liberation 2005 “Jaroussky’s voice is all fire and ice…. extraordinary clarity, drop-dead intonation, and impeccable diction… an astonishing West Coast début." The Vancouver Sun 2004
