    His youth (not yet thirty years old), cherubic features and talent for breakdancing, mean that we could easily overlook his warm timbre which has earned him a place in the major league of Early Music performers, notably in repertoire by Handel. A graduate of Fryderyk Chopin University, Warsaw, he perfected his skills at the Juilliard School in New York before thrilling music lovers in Aix-en-Provence with Cavalli in the summer of 2017. His video on the France Musique website also created a buzz and he recorded his first recital, Anima sacra, on the Warner label. He is a thoroughly modern performer who brings seriousness and verve to the Early Music repertoire. In February, he offered us a few little-known gems from his album recorded with Il Pomo d’Oro ensemble, with whom he is reunited for his first major recital on avenue Montaigne.
