    The impact Zelenka's music can have!

    Idly tuning to BBC Radio3 the other evening, I leaped with joy, for there was the Gloria from Missa Dei Filii, the very piece and version [Bernius] which started me off on the Zelenka journey, as...
  3. Re: Zwv 7 missa paschalis to be recorded in june by ensemble inegal!

    This is brilliant news: I fully agree that we are so lucky that Zelenka has gained not only the commitment but also the awe-inspiring musicianship of Adam Victora and his colleagues.

    Re: New World Premiere Recording

    It's an excellent record in every way - see my updated survey now on the main website/News [thank you Alistair!] A close run thing as between it and Štryncl's version in my view but ZWV168 is a great...

    Re: Zelenka's greatest hits

    The bass which Andrew refers to is Karel Hanuš who was one of Prague's leading operatic basses during the 1960's - I think he was born around 1929/30 but don't know whether he is still alive. He...

    Re: Solo CD of Tomas Kral?

    An excellent idea! I would urge not only Confitebor ZWV71 [as a combination of Tomás Král and a band like Collegium Marianum would be an ideal update to Olaf Bär's old version] but also Chvelte Boha...

  16. Re: New recording of ZWV 184 w/ Berliner Barock Solisten

    It's a very important point that you have raised, as, like you, I much prefer Zelenka on period instruments - provided that they are well played! In many ways, however, "period" and "modern"...
