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.
