Secular cantatas by A. Vivaldi

Troja Chateau, U Trojského zámku 1, Praha 7
Philippe Jaroussky – countertenor
The concert presented some of the most beautiful arias from secular cantatas and operas of the Venetian “red priest” Antonio Vivaldi dedicated to a male high-pitch voice – castratos then, countertenors nowadays. The virtuoso part was sung by the French countertenor Philippe Jaroussky, then still a rising star on the vocal-art firmament.
