    Lightbulb Zelenka Festival & Conference Prague Oct 2017

    Dear Zelenkans,

    I have some dates to share for this year's Zelenka Festival Praha, so that you may have some advanced notice. This year's will be held during the first week of October: Tuesday 3rd - Saturday 7th

    I have permission to post a preliminary plan of the concerts that Ensemble Inégal are arranging, which may yet change:

    3.10: Lamentations of Jeremiah, 4.10: Secular Vocal Collection II (following on from last year's very successful arias & duets), 6 & 7.10 Missa Corporis Dominici ZWV9*

    More information concerning the featured concerts, speakers & papers will be posted as soon as it becomes available.

    I found it was a fantastic experience last year, and I hope that you will consider coming along!

    All the best,

    Seb

    Hmm, does that mean the listing on Inégal's website that they are doing ZWV 21 on 6 October in Prague and 7 October in Dresden (together with the Dresdner Kammerchor) is a decoy (to get in the punters like me who love their disc of ZWV 21) and in fact we are going to hear a "new" work? Would also not be a bad thing - I did tell Adam Viktora last October my hope that they would be looking at the earlier masses sometime. I was rather thinking of ZWV2/ZWV30 though...

    It does seem to be a mismatch, indeed. I'm waiting on information about this!

    Indeed! It's going to be the "new" work - already on the festival website: http://www.zelenkafestival.cz/en/program-2017/

    Did anyone else notice that Collegium 1704 is performing ZWV 21 at the Rudolfinium on October 3? http://www.collegium1704.com/de/prog...nium-sanctorum

    That's parallel to the Lamentationes concert by Collegium Marianum. Nice that Zelenka is hogging the Prague music scene (at least for that day), but what a dilemma!

    Fortuntely there is a fairly simple solution: Collegium 1704 perform ZWV 21 on 2 October at the Annenkirche in Dresden as part of their music bridge series: http://www.collegium1704.com/de/prog...nium-sanctorum.

    Ouch! I had not noticed this at all...

    And that would be a fairly simple solution, if you could get to Dresden and back again quickly :/
