The Polish countertenor claimed the award in the Young Artist of the Year category.

Orliński picked up the prize at a ceremony held by Britain’s Gramophone magazine in London on Wednesday, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency reported.

At 29, Orliński is one of the world’s most sought-after countertenors.

Born in Warsaw in 1990, he studied at the city’s Fryderyk Chopin University of Music before receiving postgraduate training at the famous Juilliard School in New York.

Orliński has won numerous singing competitions on both sides of the Atlantic, according to the gramophone.co.uk website.

He combines a singing career with a sideline in breakdance and modeling.
