‘Philippe Jaroussky & Thibaut Garcia - À sa guitare’

6 Jan.'22

When we think of melody, the sound of the piano immediately springs to mind. But this is to forget that other strings – plucked this time – once held sway in aristocratic salons. The guitar, together with its cousins the lute or theorbo, wove elaborate designs around the voice. This required a virtuoso capable of both opulence of sound and ethereal atmospheres. These are precisely the talents of Thibaut Garcia, a rising star, but already a worthy partner of Philippe Jaroussky, whose vocal qualities need no further introduction. These two partners take us on a wide-ranging exploration of melody, from the subtleties of the English masters to Schubert’s dramatic Erlkönig, from Mozart’s crepuscular Abendempfindung to the Iberian flashes of Granados’ Amor y odio, el mirar de la maja, via the French refinement of Fauré and Poulenc’s À sa guitare, his tribute to the genius of Ronsard.
