Music to my Ears Podcast: Countertenor Jakub Józef Orliński
We spoke to the Polish countertenor about his entry to music – and how he initially wanted to join The King's Singers – and the music he listens to on the move
This week, we meet the star Polish countertenor Jakub Józef Orliński to discuss the laborious process of recording previously undiscovered works, his passion for breakdancing and the music he listens to while he’s on the move.
He also tells us about why he believes the post-pandemic concert format works surprisingly well, and why he prefers listening to ambient music when he travels as opposed to music by the likes of Palestrina and Tallis.
