Philippe Jaroussky conquers the Bellas Artes

The French countertenor, considered “the Farinelli of the 21st century,” first sets foot in a concert hall in Mexico

By Yanet Aguilar Sosa

Five times he reappeared on stage at the Palacio de Bellas Artes: French countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, accompanied by pianist Jérôme Ducros. Four times to interpret French songs that confirmed his great vocal quality as well as his generosity; the last time solely for saying goodbye to an audience that had risen to their feet.

That evening, the musical warmth of Jaroussky was evident during his only performance at the Palacio de Bellas Artes that the singer with the vocal range of the castrati, the most important countertenor of present times, set foot in for the first time in his life.

When he returned for the encore, the celebrated artist said he was very happy and excited to sing for the first time at the legendary concert hall in Mexico.

Four popular French pieces were Jaroussky’s gift for the audience who gave him standing ovations. There, among the people in the audience, was Mexican tenor Javier Camarena, who always praised the talent of the French countertenor of 38 years who has received numerous awards and recognition for a career that based on a voice that oscillates from refinement to modern touch.

The French singer who is considered “the Farinelli of the twenty-first century” conquered the Bellas Artes with Fine Arts with a sumptuous repertoire of the nineteenth century, with the interpretation of wide-spanning program comprising pieces by Reynaldo Hahn, Poldowski, Gabriel Fauré, Claude Debussy, Emmanuel Chabrier, Ernest Chausson, Józef Szulc, André Caplet, Arthur Honegger, Léo Ferré and Charles Trenet.

The program lasted more than two hours, focusing on melodies and French songs based on poems by Paul Verlaine. He was accompanied by the famous pianist Jérôme Ducros, who also performed four solo pieces.

Visibly excited and happy, the singer sang encores that were equally celebrated by the audience. Roberto Ángulo said at the end of the concert: “How generous he is. Others would just have said ‘I am singing my program and that’s it.’”

SFgate – A splendid musical evening with Verlaine

2016-05-13, SFgate/San Francisco Chronicle, by Joshua Kosman

Thursday’s program, presented by Cal Performances, laid claim to wider turf. It turns out that the French art song responds vibrantly to the countertenor’s vaulting, muscular falsetto — at least when wielded with the eloquence and tonal clarity that Jaroussky brings to the task.

Mx Noticias – El contratenor francés Philippe Jaroussky prefiere “emocionar que impresionar”

2016-05-11, Mx Noticias, by Merry MacMasters

La música clásica tiene una fuerza que resalta lo más bello de la humanidad, afirma Philippe Jaroussky

Respecto del cuidado de su voz, Jaroussky se ha dado cuenta de que con el tiempo se hace más grave; entonces, necesita depurar el gesto vocal, que cada vez sea lo más simple y natural posible con la finalidad de conservar su longevidad, hay que dormir mucho, no hablar y bajarle al ritmo de vida, dijo.

The New York Times – Review: Philippe Jaroussky Breaks Away From Baroque Boundaries

2016-05-09, The New York Times, by Vivien Schweitzer


Mr. Jaroussky’s silken voice proved alluring in these elegantly conceived interpretations. He shaded the texts with myriad nuances, as in the dramatic “Fantoches” from Debussy’s “Fête galantes,” a set of six songs, including a setting of “Clair de Lune,” that was featured on the program. His phrasing was admirable, as in the subtly shaped conclusion of Charles Bordes’s “O triste, triste était mon âme.” Charles Trenet’s jazzy version of “Chanson d’automne” contrasted with Reynaldo Hahn’s somber setting.
