Philippe Jaroussky with L’Arpeggiata and Christina Pluhar

By  | February 18, 2012 | 0 Comments | Filed under: Concerts

This, LArpeggiatas first release on Virgin Classics, explores music by Claudio Monteverdi, blending instruments and voices including those of countertenor Philippe Jaroussky and soprano Núria Rial in a kind of intoxicating baroque jam session. It includes the final duet from Lincoronazione di Poppea, often cited as one of the most sensuous and beautiful love scenes in all opera.

Don't let the breathless tone of the blurb put you off – this is some really lovely singing. Enjoy :-).
