Anima Sacra: Sacred Baroque Arias
Jakub Józef Orliński (countertenor) / Il pomo d'oro, Maxim Emelyanchev

[ Erato Classics / CD ]

Release Date: Friday 26 October 2018

The debut album from countertenor Jakub Józef Orliński - born in Warsaw, trained at New York's Juilliard School, and 2016 winner of the Metropolitan Opera's prestigious National Council Auditions - Anima sacra features what are believed to be world premiere recordings of eight Baroque arias, notably by composers of the Neapolitan school. Orliński is partnered by Il pomo d'oro conducted by Maxim Emelyanychev.

"Orliński is a natural opera animal, with the Baroque as his bread-and-butter repertoire." Classical-Source


"If Orliński's marble-cool countertenor brings the spiritual, then Maxim Emelyanychev and Il Pomo d'Oro offer some deliciously secular friction…In the studio at least, Orliński rides this densely textured accompaniment with ease. It's an attractive voice that has something of Jaroussky about it )the unworked purity, the easy legato) but with the greater focus and muscularity of a young Scholl, Zazzo or Davies…this is a voice with a big future." Gramophone

"The "operatic" aria from Il Faraone sommerso (Pharaoh submerged) by Nicola Fago (1677-1745) and his Latin motets Confitebor tibi and Tam non splendet are remarkable works that showcase the unearthly beauty of Orlinski's tone, his pearly coloratura and fabulous breath control. He's only 28, but this is a special voice to look out for" Sunday Times
