La Dolce Fiamma - Forgotten Castrato Arias of JC Bach: Philippe Jaroussky, Jérémie Rhorer, Le Cercle De L'Harmonie

Philippe Jaroussky, the outstanding French countertenor, is about to set foot on Australian shores for a keenly anticipated concert series with Paul Dyer’s Australian Brandenburg Orchestra. In this timely CD release, Jaroussky sings rarely performed arias of J.C. Bach from six of his operas. With great ease of virtuosity, Jaroussky showcases the music of the younger Bach. Jaroussky plays the role of musicologist as well as artist by single-handedly bringing these forgotten arias by J.C. Bach out of the shadows of his great father and that of Mozart.

This is the special edition, available exclusively to Readings in Australia. It comprises a case-bound deluxe CD book which tells the story of J.C. Bach and includes many rare illustrations.
