Jakub Józef Orliński
A concert with the Capella Regia Polona Early-Instruments Ensemble of the Polish Royal Opera
The angelic voice and appearance of Jakub Orliński have gained him crowds of fans around the world. He has recorded three albums, performed at Carnegie Hall and at the Lincoln Centre Alice Tully Hall, and, in addition, boasts a multitude of awards: enough to mention the two most recent – Polityka’s Passport and the Gramophone Classical Music Award for the best young artist. The Polish countertenor performs mainly early music: for example, on Anima Sacra we will find eight premiere recordings of Baroque arias, mainly from the Neapolitan school. The audiences appreciate his stage presence, beautiful voice, ambitious selection of repertoire, wise management of his own development and career, but above all – his humbleness towards music. The concert at Teatr Wielki will, in a sense, constitute a return to the beginnings of his career, as Orliński has participated in Teatr Wielki’s Opera Academy workshops since 2012. When he is not singing, our hero of the evening… dances. And by no means baroque numbers – he favours modern street style with its gravity-defying contortions.
