About Phillipe Jaroussky
Philippe Jaroussky (born 1978) is a French sopranist countertenor. He is noted for a virtuosic coloratura technique and for compelling and enlivened interpretations of baroque cantatas and operas. This has contributed to his unusual revival of repertoire. According to La Terrasse, "this young singer with the tone of an angel and the virtuosity of the Devil has come into the limelight in only a few years as the great new French vocal talent." He received the 2007 best French lyrical artist award. Read more on Last.fm.
