Jakub Jozef Orlinski: Facce d’Amore
Exceptional recital at the Théâtre du Capitole in Toulouse, given by Jakub Józef Orlinski who returns to the stage with the ensemble Il Pomo d'Oro for FACCE D'AMORE.
Facce d'Amore is the second solo album of Jakub Jozef Orliński. It includes 8 world premieres. All the tunes tell a story, illustrating the male figure in the Baroque era - and not only the positive aspect such as the pleasure of mutual love, but also anger and even madness. Spanning a period of almost 85 years, the arias in Facce d'Amore are by Handel, Cavalli, Boretti, Bononcini, Conti, Locatelli, Orlandini and others. This is a great opportunity to see and hear the singer in a new programme, tailor-made to allow him to excel in a repertoire that is both moving and theatrical. Accompanied by the musicians of Il Pomo d'Oro - an Italian ensemble conducted by Zefira Valova with a rhythm that is a pleasure to see - Jakub delights in deploying in these pieces a sense of theatre and accuracy of play that only the stage lacks. This magnificent Theatre is the ideal setting for one of the most dazzling countertenors of his generation to explore the rare gems of 17th and 18th century Italian opera.
