outwestarts.blogspot.de – The Sopranist

2011-10-29, outwestarts.blogspot.de, by Brian

He’s technically a sopranist countertenor with his range lying closer to a soprano’s than a mezzo’s. His voice is bright with very effortless top notes he can float above the audience for days. His coloratura work is significantly more agile and precise than most vocalists of any range and he used that ability for some remarkable moments as with “Con l’ali di costanza” from Handel’s Ariodante. However, the lower end of his range could become weak and fade out even with the small ensemble accompanying him. Yet, when he chose arias that stayed more completely in the upper part of his range he excelled as with “Si mai senti spirati sul volto”. […] Of course, it wasn’t just the aria selection that showed the singer’s acumen, it was his choice of touring partners as well. […] The small ensemble of players on this tour managed a delicate sound that perfectly matched Jaroussky’s tone, never overwhelming it.
