Anima Aeterna, an adventurous programme of sacred arias and motets from the 18th century, follows in the footsteps of Anima Sacra, performed for a sold-out auditorium at AMUZ in 2018. Orliński sings music by Jan Dismas Zelenka, Georg Friedrich Händel, Johann Joseph Fux and the lesser-known Francisco António de Almeida Davide Perez. The moods of his music range from energetic, wild and dangerous to calm, enchanting and restorative. “The young Polish countertenor with a second career as a break-dancer combines matinee idol looks with a voice of quite astonishing, almost unearthly beauty, coolly sensual in tone, evenly produced throughout a wide range, and supported by well-nigh exemplary technique.” (The Guardian). An inspiring start to the new season!
