    We often speak of Handel and his castrati, quite legitimately because Carestini, Caffarelli and Senesino were entrusted with unforgettable pieces.  However, the female voices were not left out and the composer delivered arias for these ladies that were no less sublime.  Emőke Baráth is a worthy heir to this tradition with the strength of her performances.  Nevertheless, with the wide range of her voice and a bewitching beauty of tone, she pays tribute to the great sopranos for whom Handel had an unbounded love:  Francesca Cuzzoni who created the roles of Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare or Rodelinda, not forgetting Anna Maria Strada del Pò who played Adelaide in Lotario and, above all, Alcina.

    If there is one artist who knows his Handel, it is Philippe Jaroussky.  If his vocal abilities place him in the firmament of opera singing, the illustrious French countertenor is at the same time embarking on a career as a conductor that promises to be just as intense.  At the head of his ensemble Artaserse, Philippe Jaroussky will be able to weave an ideal setting for an accomplice with whom he has shared many stages.
