    Dear friends,

    it is with a heavy heart that I report the tragic death of Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Horn, one of the great Zelenka scholars.

    Re: Missa Sanctae Caeciliae ZWV 1

    The accompanying piece is the offertory Currite ad aras (ZWV 166), which Zelenka composed in Vienna in June 1716. So it's a very welcoming early Zelenka program for the next CD. Let's hope we'll hear...

  7. Re: Zelenka Conference & Festival Prague-Dresden, October 2018: Programme & Dates

    I am very pleased to say that as in the previous years, the Zelenka Conference 2018 is shaping up to be one of real importance and substance. I now see that two outstanding Czech scholars have been...
  8. Zelenka, Ristori and Heinichen in Leipzig

    On the heels of Ensemble Inégal’s very successful performance of Gesu al Calvario in Leipzig, I can now report on another incredibly exciting concert coming up in that same city. This time it’s the...
  9. Re: For those who are in the vicinity of Stockholm next week

    I attended this nice concert, in the beautiful Tyska Kirkan in the Gamla Stan part of Stockholm. It was great to hear Ensemble Inégal bring Zelenka to the Swedish audience, who were very receptive to...
  10. Re: Early Music Radio BB6 - "Composer Profile: Zelenka" Sun 14 April

    Alistair, be my guest:

    Her spelling of Zelenka with a "c" confirms that at least she read the Virtuosen poem I sent!
  11. Re: Early Music Radio BB6 - "Composer Profile: Zelenka" Sun 14 April

    Fearing the worst, I immediately emailed BBC on Friday with a standard “template” text I sometimes send to institutions who post or publish incorrect information about Zelenka on their websites. This...

  13. Re: Performance of ZWV 14 by Kammerchor and Barockorchester Stuttgart / Frieder Berni

    Lezhneva meeting Zelenka? Wow, that promises to be something. She's a wonderful singer. Let's hope SWR2 will broadcast this exciting concert at a later date – they usually document well what Bernius...

    Re: Zelenka-inspired works in the archives

    Re: A fun fanfare - school performance video

    Thanks Seb, this was absolutely brilliant to hear! Zelenka's trumpet pieces played freely, and with style and vigour!

    I just want to add for the record, and for my many Forum friends, that I am...
  16. Re: Recording of parody of part of Missa Circumcisionis by CPE Bach

    All very interesting. A further study, showing in a systematic academic way the similarities between the above mentioned examples of CPE and Zelenka, is clearly needed here. Robin, why don’t you...
  17. Re: Recording of parody of part of Missa Circumcisionis by CPE Bach

    Great stuff! This sounds quite convincing. And no, I can’t recall this being mentioned in the literature, the reason perhaps being that CPE Bach’s cantata only recently resurfaced in the...

    Re: Psalmi Vespertini III

    The war loot taken from Dresden in 1745-46 was split between the different institutions in the former Soviet Union. So the music removed from the SLUB, including the missing vesper psalms listed...
