Les Arts Florissants
William Christie , conducting
Hugh Cutting , contre-ténor

Two high-pitched voices trained in the British school take on an Italian baroque repertoire studded with vocal acrobatics—not a ‘battle of the countertenors’ but rather a collegial collaboration, under the aegis of a conductor with a special fondness for their art.
