View Full Version : Ensemble Inégal: Gesu al Calvario ZWV62 Prague Spring Festival 15/05/17 Rudolfinium

Hello folks,

This will be quite a landmark performance for Inégal and for Zelenka. It will be in the grand Dvorak Hall of the Rudolfinium, and at one of the biggest Classical music festivals in the Czech Republic. Also, knowing what operatic marvels they've done in the past with Il Serpente di Bronzo and Il Diamante, it will be worth seeing & listening to.

Gabriela Eibenová (S), Lenka Cafourková ((S) who is becoming a familiar name now), Franz Vitzthum (A), Filippo Mineccia (A), Markéta Cukrová (A)


PS. I am not sure if the list of soloists here is up to date, as some other advertisements include Carlos Mena as a counter-tenor.

Is anyone else here attending this tomorrow? It might be fun to meet up.
It should be fantastic! See Ensemble Inegale's facebook page for a clip of them rehearsing 'Si crocifigga' without choir. Check out the tempo!

I wish I was there! Enjoy :) There is also going to be a lecture (http://www.festival.cz/cz/novinka/Jan_Dismas_Zelenka_%C4%8Desk%C3%BD_a_sv%C4%9Btov%C 3%BD_%E2%80%93_st%C3%A1le_objevovan%C3%BD_mistr_vr choln%C3%A9ho_baroka) (in Czech, I presume) beforehand by PhDr Petra Daňka

Here's that video clip you mention. I can imagine the choir's ferocity:
