Polish countertenor Jakub Józef Orliński is quickly gaining a reputation as a singer of striking vocal beauty and daring stage craft. He has been hailed by critics and audiences alike, prompting The New York Times to write: “Jakub Józef Orliński combined beauty of tone and an uncommon unity of color and polish across his range.” Autumn of 2018 saw the greatly anticipated release of his debut album, Anima Sacra, a recital of 18th-century rediscovered sacred arias. Highlights of the 2018/19 season include a multi-city, international recital tour with Il pomo d'oro, as well as his Carnegie Hall solo concert debut featuring members of New York Baroque Incorporated. He will be presented in recital by the Fundacío Victoria de los Ángeles in Barcelona and will sing additional concerts in Pennsylvania and Louisiana. He debuts with the Warsaw Philharmonic in Händel’s Messiah and Montreal Bach Festival in a program of Bach, Händel and Vivaldi arias. On the opera stage, Jakub Józef Orliński will debut with the Glyndebourne Festival Opera as Eustazio in Händel’s Rinaldo, and returns to Oper Frankfurt to reprise his dynamic portrayal of the title role in the same piece and then as Unulfo in Händel’s Rodelinda, which will also serve as his role and house debut with Opéra de Lille under the baton of Emmanuelle Haïm. Jakub Józef Orliński was trained at the Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw and the Juilliard School of Music in New York. He is an exclusive Erato/Warner Classics recording artist.
