To open the San Diego Early Music Society’s 40th anniversary season, vocal aerialist Philippe Jaroussky, the king of French countertenors, makes his San Diego debut. Together with Ensemble Artaserse, he will perform arias and other works by Handel, Hasse, Ferrandini, Piccinni, and Vivaldi. Jaroussky’s recordings have garnered numerous accolades and awards: Gramophone writes, “Jaroussky’s rapid passagework…is precise…but the outstanding moments are slow arias that could have been tailor-made for Jaroussky’s sweetly graceful melodic singing.” BBC Music Magazine concurs, “Jaroussky’s expressiveness is irresistible.” Jaroussky is a bona fide superstar of early music, so get your tickets early!
