    She is conducting and singing simultaneously??!… That’s fascinating!

      yes, she’s been doing this for years with her orchestra! you should check out Dehggi’s review of her concert with Orfeo55 (her orchestra) at Wigmore Hall. On a much more rare occasion, her debut as a conductor in Berlin was Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, and at the last minute Jaroussky was sick so they asked her to step in to sing the lower voice part! I’d absolutely love to hear her in this! it was a much more difficult job because she was not as familiar with the orchestra.. and the public gave her a standing ovation (something very rare in Germany am told…) . I think i blogged about it last year..
