To read

It has long been known that Philippe Jaroussky is an unparalleled pioneer, curious and sensitive to little-known repertoires and other dormant treasures. This is what this programme is all about some of the Italian and German composers of the 17th century (Caldara, Bononcini, Fago, Hasse, Scarlatti, Chelleri), thus offering an unprecedented polyphonic panorama of European vocal musical creation at the turn of the time.
