    Hi everyone,

    The program and the conference date and speakers have been released on the Czech language website: http://www.zelenkafestival.cz/zelenk...e-prague-2018/ and http://www.zelenkafestival.cz/program-2018/

    I've corrected the program in my original post.

    Hope to see you there,

    Seb

    Hi,
    I have just booked the hotel and tickets for the "Missa Sancti Spiritus"
    Anyone else attending this concert, maybe we can organise a Zelenkians-Meeting before or after the concert?

    Sadly I will not make it again this year due to heavy work commitments that week Very frustrating. I wish all a great time and looking forward to hear all the latest Zelenka news ...

    Yes, I'm sure there will be. On the 20th and on previous days too. This would best be organised in PM/email.
    For anyone who is interested in meeting during this week, please message me on the forum PM.

    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 added to the list of speakers, namely Václav Kapsa (Prague) and Jana Perutková (Brno) and it will exciting to hear what they will bring to the Zelenka research. Also, the paper of their compatriot Lukas Vokrinek could turn out to be very interesting... But the best news is that the Zelenka choral director Maria Sawinkova (Moscow) will give a paper, for she has already seen some of the scores/parts from Zelenka’s collection that was taken from Dresden in 1945 and is currently located in the National Library in Moscow. When it comes to research into Zelenka music materials, Russia is the promised land. It is there where the focus must turn to in the coming years.

    In addition to Jan Stockigt’s paper, which will be interesting to hear as always, her students Andrew Frampton and Frederic Kiernan will no doubt enlighten us with new insights into our composer and his working methods and life. While I will not give a paper this year I am glad to say that Iceland will be well represented by Kjartan Óskarsson, who will deliver a paper of great interest for Zelenka studies.

    That is a pretty fantastic line-up. Looking forward to it! I am also over the moon to hear that there is even a chance of the Russian manuscripts coming to light.
