Ensemble Artaserse

In 2002, after long collaboration in the most prestigious baroque ensembles in France and Europe, several musicians decided to form the Ensemble Artaserse. Those friends were Christine Plubeau (viola da gamba), Claire Antonini (theorbe), Yoko Nakamura (harpsichord and organ) and, of course, Philippe Jaroussky (counter-tenor). They gave in october 2002 a first and highly-acclaimed concert in the Theatre du Palais-Royal in Paris, with the Musiche a voce sola by the Italian composer Benedetto Ferrari. This music was immediately recorded and released by the French label Ambroisie, receiving then very prestigious awards (Diapason-decouverte by the magazine Diapason, 10 de Classica-Repertoire, Timbre de diamant by the magazine Opera International etc.).

With this ability to adapt to numerous repertoires including music by Antonio Vivaldi or George Friedric Handel, the ensemble performed progressively in the most famous venues and festivals in France, such as the Festivals of Ambronay, Sablé, Pontoise, Saint-Michel-en-Thiérache, Festival de Musique Ancienne de Lyon, Salle Gaveau, the Auditorium du Louvre and the Théatre du Chatelet in Paris, the Château de Versailles, the Bordeaux Opera, the Nancy Opera etc.
