ArtistsPhilippe Jaroussky (countertenor)
In late 2015 Jaroussky performed these works before a capacity audience at Berlin’s historic Konzerthaus, where he was artist-in-residence in the 2015-16 season; this concert marked the first time he had sung in German to a German audience. ‘The voice of an angel’ were the words of the Berliner Tagesspiegel, which also made clear that Jaroussky had the vocal means to express the drama of Telemann’s ‘Mount of Olives’ cantata. The Berliner Morgenpost, meanwhile, highlighted the singer’s readiness to venture into new areas of repertoire, describing him as ‘perhaps the most adventurous of today’s countertenors’. The writer also praised Jaroussky’s ‘exquisitely fine legato’ and evoked the way his ‘plaintive descant glowed over the inky-black accompaniment’ in the Telemann. The instrumental ensemble in Berlin, as on this recording, was the Freiburger Barockorchester, which gave its first concert nearly 30 years ago and is established as one of the finest ensembles in the field of historically informed performance.
