Philippe Jaroussky needs no introduction as his relationship with the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées goes back over twenty years. His perfect technical mastery gives him a licence to introduce audacious and daring nuances across a very wide repertoire. He is a musician with a long history of experimenting with new material. Although his preferred period is early music, we have also heard him perform French mélodie, Schubert, work by the very contemporary Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho, and a tribute to the French singer Barbara accompanied by Thibaut Garcia on the guitar. We have recently seen him in the orchestra pit and on the rostrum for a memorable Giulio Cesare. He is now returning for a recital accompanied by the Concert de la Loge and violinist Julien Chauvin to delve into the musical ambience of the eighteenth century and discover some forgotten gems by Valentini, J.C. Bach, Hasse, Jommelli, Bernasconi, Ferrandini, and Traetta.
