Jakub Józef Orlinski & Il Pomo d’Oro: Anima Sacra
13 December 2019
The singing schools in Naples and Venice had an important role to play in the landscape of late Baroque music. Talented Venetian musicians were trained there for a future at the chapel of St. Mark’s. Tourists even viewed Italian churches as a kind of concert hall, where people went to enjoy the beautiful music of composers such as Antonio Vivaldi. He wrote his Nisi Dominus, named after the first words of Psalm 127, for vespers (the evening service). Jakub Józef Orlinski, the young countertenor who is causing a sensation on the early music scene, will perform in AMUZ for the first time in early December. The concert is greatly anticipated as it is also his first concert in Belgium.
