Two Vocal Recordings with il pomo d’oro win at Opus Klassik 2019


Il pomo d’oro is happy to announce that two recent vocal recordings projects have been awarded an Opus Klassik, the most important classical music awards in Germany.

Emőke Baráth wins the Young Vocal Artist award for Voglio Cantar and Jakub Józef Orliński wins the Vocal Solo Album award (Opera) for Anima Sacra.

The jury has said about Emőke Baráth: “The young Hungarian soprano Emőke Baráth conquers the German music world with her Erato debut album (Voglio Cantar)”. On the album and on tour, the program, which celebrates Barbara Strozzi’s legacy, il pomo d’oro is led by Francesco Corti.

Jakub Józef Orliński “inspires the classical world with his extraordinary voice” said the Opus Klassik 2019 jury. Anima Sacra has been the first collaboration of the Polish rising-star countertenor with il pomo d’oro and Maxim Emelyanychev.

The OPUS KLASSIK is the new German award for classical music. A jury of representatives of the music and media industry has awarded 46 winners in 24 categories for the 2019 edition. The awards’ gala will take place at the Konzerthaus Berlin on October 13, 2019. It will be transmitted the same evening by German TV (ZDF).
