Two musical kindred spirits are presiding over this concert: Philippe Jaroussky, whose radiant, nuanced countertenor has made him one of the leading exponents of his vocal category, and the guitarist Thibaut Garcia. Anyone expecting a pure Baroque programme from this pair will be astonished by the range of repertoire. The two musicians are presenting a highly unusual selection of works, ranging from Renaissance song to Mozart’s contemplative Abendempfindung and Schubert’s dramatic Erlkönig to the modern chanson and Francis Poulenc’s melancholy song À sa guitare.
