Biography

The Antwerp tenor Jan Van Elsacker enjoyed his big breakthrough in 1996: he became laureate of the international competition Musica Antiqua in Bruges and finalist of the Erna Spoorenberg Presentation. He earned fame with numerous performances of passions, but his international reputation is mostly based on his interpretations of early Italian baroque music, which he cherishes especially. Jan Van Elsacker collaborates with highly reputed ensembles such as Akâdemia, Le Poème Harmonique, L’Arpeggiata, Weser Renaissance, La Fenice, and the Ricercar Consort. He has also come into his own with Lied recitals, accompanied by Jos van Immerseel, Claire Chevallier, Katia Schoemaker, and Tom Beghin. In 2008 he took care of the title role in L’Orfeo by Claudio Monteverdi, under the baton of Jean Tubéry. On CD he can be heard in the great works of Monteverdi and Heinrich Schütz. Together with harpsichordist-organist Bart Rodyns he founded the ensemble Il Trionfo del Tempo.
