“When I heard Philippe Jaroussky for the first time, I was struck by his musicality and sensibility,” Cecilia Bartoli told The New York Times Magazine for a profile last November. “There is a beauty in his phrasing and a delicacy, if not fragility, in his soul that touches the listener profoundly.” UMS is delighted to welcome French countertenor Philippe Jaroussky in his UMS debut for this performance with Apollo’s Fire, “one of the nation’s leading baroque orchestras.” (The Boston Globe). Together they explore the full dramatic range of Handel and Vivaldi arias written for the virtuosi castrati singers of the 18th century. “Apollo’s Fire has forged a vibrant, life-affirming approach to the re-making of early music…Their seductive vision of musical authenticity is guided by a shared commitment to honest emotional expression, rooted in period style yet never its slave.” (BBC Music Magazine)
