Jakub Józef Orliński – Il Pomo d’Oro


The Polish award-winning counter tenor Jakub Józef Orliński comes to the Odeon of Herodes Atticus to captivate the Greek audience not only with his voice, which has been described as ‘the most eerily beautiful on the planet’, but also with his charismatic presence as a breakdancer. Together with the extroverts and activists Il Pomo d’Oro, the acclaimed ensemble founded in 2012 by renowned virtuosos in the field of historical music performance, they are celebrated in sold-out recitals around the world, introducing a new generation of listeners to Early music.

It is no coincidence that Orliński’s live recorded performance of Vivaldi’s aria Vedrò con mio diletto (Aix-en-Provence, 2017) has over 11,000,000 views on YouTube. With Beyond, they present early Baroque compositions, many of which are rarely performed, in one of the most highly anticipated and unconventional evenings on this year’s programme.
