    Default Major Zelenka activity in South Korea posted on YT

    Maybe this has come to the attention of others: in recent weeks a set of videos showing no fewer than 3 large scale works by Zelenka performed by the Daegeon Chamber Choir of South Korea have been posted on YT:

    ZWV 21 (performance from 11/2014): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...Rw0VwElCRSgchA
    ZWV 19 (performance from 11/2015): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...rMgwcXiXuEeZMm
    ZWV 146 (performance from 10/2016): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...BFVy9_BYEc9AJR

    While the audio is not really of CD quality (would need some post-production) it is plain to see that these are exceptionally fine performances by really excellent players (Camerata Antiqua Seoul) and singers. Bearing in mind that these are some of Zelenka's most challenging works, the live performances are nearly note perfect and sometimes go at breakneck speed! I particularly like the ZWV 19 which I believe challenges the most recent existing recordings (Guttler, Bernius).

    I hope we can look forward to more first rate Zelenka from this group, perhaps even a CD release.

    Impressed by these performances but slightly irritated by the raw audio quality (near-zero-reverb and resonating in the bass frequencies) I have spruced them up a little bit. Sets of improved mp3s can be found here:

    ZWV 19 - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8syzp3n9h...EGWGykt8a?dl=0
    ZWV 21 - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/6ajp3w2wz...rvu2a-gca?dl=0
    ZWV 146 - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1ifr9n7gi...AnZpaNuNa?dl=0

    In case the owner of the copyright of these recordings has a problem with me sharing these please send me a message and I will remove them immediately.
