Editors’ Notes With his sweet, flexible, and immediately distinctive countertenor voice, Philippe Jaroussky adds yet another winning album to his musical CV. This is an imaginatively programmed and beautifully executed collection of arias from eight of Handel’s less-often-encountered operas. Jaroussky has a very evident rapport with his fine Ensemble Artaserse, and together they bring these various operatic characters vividly to life with tremendous style. Prepare to be enchanted by Handel’s invention and by Jaroussky’s seductive singing.
