  • Jakub Józef Orliński countertenor
  • Il Pomo d'Oro

The young Polish countertenor has risen speedily to stardom: earlier this year he made his Glyndebourne debut as Eustazio in Handel’s Rinaldo and recently released his debut album Anima Sacra with the period-instrument ensemble that accompanies him in this programme.

‘Facce d’amore’ is the musical picture of a male lover in the 18th century. The programme focusses on different aspects of love, ranging from joy to madness, anger and even craziness. Starting from works by Cavalli, Boretti, going through Bononcini, Conti, Handel, Predieri and finishing on a virtuosic love aria, sung by Orfeo and composed for the famous castrato Farinelli by Hasse, the repertoire represents a journey through the Baroque era.
