This re-release of an album recorded in 2003 and for a long, long time unavailable on the market – sometimes it can be found on sale for eye-watering sums – is the vision supplied by Philippe Jaroussky and the musicians of the Artaserse ensemble, of the 14 concert airs (and what airs!) written by Benedetto Ferrari (1603-1681). While he is not very well known today, Ferrari was a great star in his day, and one might well suspect that the final duet from L’incoronazione di Poppea, signed by Monteverdi – the extraordinarily moving Pur ti miro, pur ti godo  – might well have been written by Ferrari. Alas, none of his own operas have survived, but we still know three books of airs by Ferrari: the Musiche varie a voce sola (published in Venice in 1633, 1637 and 1641), from which Jaroussky has made this judicious selection. If the musical differences between the airs do not necessarily jump out at the listener at first, no-one can deny the virtuosity of the young Jaroussky on display here – he was 25 years old at the time, and he had not yet won the numerous awards which would propel his career onwards, starting with the 2004 “Victoire de la Musique”.  But it was all already there…
