Swipe Saturday 28: Phillipe Jaroussky

I’ve never posted any audio, but this is just too amazing to ignore. Phillipe Jaroussky, a French counter-tenor, has reprised Nicola Porpora’s arias originally written for the castrato Farinelli. His new renditions are sublime.

Here’s an interview from NPR’s ‘All Things Considered’ and a few of my favorite tracks from the album ‘Farinelii – Porpora Arias’.

    I sang soprano in the Utah Boys Choir – as a boy – and continued to embrace the beauty of the counter-tenor voice in the Kings Singers and other singing groups I was part of. I wish I could still sing that high but I’ve become more a tenor and love hearing voices so exquisitely counter-tenor. Thanks for sharing Arlo!
