New York Times – Nearly 100, the Salzburg Festival Doesn’t Wait to Celebrate

2019-08-16, The New York Times, by Zachary Woolfe

“Riding the music with gusto and unafraid to take risks, Ms. Bartoli’s voice sometimes tightens in fast, florid passages, but in relaxed music her tone is still warm and fresh; for floating notes she’s equaled by the countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, playing one of the men in her magical clutches.” […]

The New York Times – Philippe Jaroussky réussira-t-il à ouvrir la musique classique à la diversité ?

2018-01-18, The New York Times, by Elian Peltier

M. Jaroussky en fit le constat lors d’un entretien récent : « Que ce soit à Hambourg, à New York ou à Paris, je chante devant le même type de public. Et autant j’adore mon public, autant je suis inquiet. Parce que si nous n’apportons pas de mixité sociale sur scène, nous n’aurons pas de public plus jeune et plus diversifié, non plus ».

“When I heard Philippe Jaroussky for the first time, I was struck by his musicality and sensibility,” Cecilia Bartoli, who sang with him in Handel’s “Giulio Cesare,” wrote in an e-mail. “There is a beauty in his phrasing and a delicacy, if not fragility in his soul, that touches the listener profoundly.” The legendary English countertenor James Bowman says that “Jaroussky sounds like the boy Bach would have loved to write for.”
