Le Cercle de l'Harmonie

In his seventh solo disc for Virgin Classics, Philippe Jaroussky explores the rarely performed operas of Johann Christian Bach, known as 'the London Bach'.

Philippe Jaroussky's last operatic recital for Virgin Classics collected arias written for a castrato singer, Carestini, whose star had been somewhat eclipsed by his contemporaries Farinelli and Senesino. With this recital, the French countertenor, with his voice of "startling beauty" (Classic FM) turns to a composer who - despite his famous surname, his celebrity in his lifetime, and his influence on the young Mozart - is still not given his full due: Johann Christian Bach (1735-1782).

This new recital brings together arias from six of his operas, written for Milan, Mannheim and London, the city in which he spent the last 20 years of his life and where, in 1764, he met the Mozart, then a touring child prodigy.

"I like taking on the role of an interpreter who brings forgotten musicians the attention they deserve," says Jaroussky, whose last Virgin Classics release, Opium featured some French rarities from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. "It was time to bring J.C. Bach out of Mozart's shadow … He was a fan of Mozart's, but his own worth should be recognised. His music is very intelligently written. It shows off the wind instruments, he was a master of ornamentation and there is a dialogue between voice and orchestra, although the tessitura of the vocal writing presents a real challenge, often ranging across two octaves." Jaroussky's art thrives on virtuoso demands of this kind; as The Times said: "What Jaroussky does with a formidable counter-tenor range is to make the words dance in fleet-footed rhythms - and to tell a story as though it were headline news." The singer himself has researched this rarely performed music, returning to the original scores: "It's like searching for hidden treasure," he says. The name of one of the operas is familiar, Orfeo ed Euridice, but the aria recorded here was written by Bach for insertion into Act 1 of Gluck's most famous work.

========= from the cover ==========

Having previously concentrated on the Italian repertoire of the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. I have for several years been gradually discovering the riches of a less familiar period, the yean between 1750 and 1780, which marked the end of the baroque and the beginning of the classical period with such composers as Jommelli, Paisiello. Cimarosa and Johann Christian Bach.

Why Bach especially ? Because I think he is one of the most important opera composers between Handel and Mozart. Mozart in particular having been influenced by his stage works. Much of his music has still not been recorded, yet it contains a freshness and originality (hat reflects an exceptional personality, charming, brave, rebellious and at the forefront of the musical developments of his time.

This period also saw the approaching end of the reign of the castrati, while boasting such great singers as Guadagni, who created the role of Orfeo for Gluck, and Manzuoli, who sang Ascanio for the young Mozart.

Having performed several times with Le Cercle de l'Harmonie directed by Jeremie Rhorer, it was immediately clear to me that this was the perfect orchestra with whom to record this disc. I hope that you will share the pleasure we have enjoyed in performing and recording this music, at once so subtle and so sparkling!
