Friends,

Adam Viktora, Gabriela Eibenová and Ensemble Inégale played a well received concert at the Lufthansa Festival in London last month. Fortunately it was recorded and will be broadcast on BBC3 on Sunday 5th June at 13:00 UK time. Two Zelenka works, plus Brentner and old Bach:
Zelenka Alma redepmptoris mater
Brentner Concerto No.4 in G major (from Horae pomeridianae)
Zelenka Salve regina
Bach Cantata 'Ich habe genug', BWV82
Brentner Concerto No.1 in G minor (from Horae pomeridianae)

Ensemble Inégale will perform Missa Omnium Sanctorum and Barbara dira effera in Prague 28 June, in preparation for the upcoming recording.

More Zelenka concerts to look out for: I've already mentioned the Berlin Potsdam Festival where Ristori's Calandro is being performed. The festival is dedicated to Dresden and the program is really exciting, see:
http://www.musikfestspiele-potsdam.de/ The fantastic bassoonist Sergio Azzolini and L'Aura Soave Cremona will play ZWV 186, Fasch and Telemann. This should be a great concert. The orchestra is boiling hot these days and last year's recording with the Vivaldi Bassoon Concertos on Naive must count as one of the most amazing baroque releases ever. Hopefully this, and other concerts will be broadcast through Deutschlandradio – http://www.dradio.de, or http://www.kulturradio.de On 17 June, the excellent Ricercar Consort (their Bach recordings on the Mirare label are a revelation) will perform parts of ZWV 16, plus Lotti, Palestrina and Bach's 1733 Kyrie and Gloria. The next day Vaclav Luks and Collegium 1704 play the third Trio Sonata of Zelenka plus works by Reichenauer, Tuma and Stölzel etc.

Luks and his colleagues are busy as ever promoting our composer; on 4 June they play a Zelenka/Handel program at the Handel Festspiele in Halle, and more Zelenka is lined up for the summer: http://www.collegium1704.com/en/calendar.html – I am looking forward to see them in a Monteverdi/Schütz program in Prague next week.

Another concert worth checking out has one of our favourite Zelenka interpreters, H.C. Rademann, conducting Akademie f. Alte Musik Berlin and the Dresdner Kammerchor, in a program of Bach, Hasse, and Zelenka's Lamentation no. 1, at the Bachfest Leipzig. Live on http://www.dradio.de/dkultur/ on 14 June, 20:00 German time.

That's great news, thanks! I shared the info on the BBC concert on a certain discussion group I frequent and I hope someone will record this.

I have the recording, thanks to a helpful friend. Unfortunately, the Alma Redemptoris Mater was omitted in the broadcast.
