Pieta (CD)

Phillippe Jaroussky
Orchestra: Ensemble Artaserse
Label: Erato Disques
Number of discs: 1

This new Vivaldi album featuring Philippe Jaroussky witnesses a reunion with the Ensemble Artaserse, which he founded.

In this production, Jaroussky assumes the dual role of both soloist and conductor.

The works chosen for this CD were all composed for the Red Priest's favorite fach - the contralto, requiring a high mezzo-sopranist like Jaroussky to adjust to the range. In top form this exceptional artist commands the technical difficulties in these selections splendidly and pays dividends in spades.

Among the pieces included here are the motet,
Clara stella e scintillate, retrospectives, Stabat Mater and Salve Regina as well as two virtuosic 'Alleluias'.
