Philippe Jaroussky: À sa guitare
Philippe Jaroussky (countertenor), Thibaut Garcia (guitar)

[ Erato Classics / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 15 October 2021

The first joint album from countertenor Philippe Jaroussky and guitarist Thibaut Garcia, À sa guitare takes its name from a song by the 20th century French composer Francis Poulenc. But its frame of reference is extraordinarily wide - both culturally and stylistically. Its 22 tracks range across 400 years and music by composers and songwriters from France, Britain, Austria, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Argentina and the USA.

"The album is a journey between different cultures, different continents and different languages," says Philippe Jaroussky, "but each piece is a world in itself. The idea was to take some risks … sometimes moving to a completely different world between one track and the next." "We can evoke hugely different colours as we juggle between renaissance music and a song by Barbara," explains Thibaut Garcia. "It's our job to play with a palette of colours to produces something unique … We put a great deal of thought into the album, but we also put our hearts into it."
