    Default Zelenka Festival & Conference Prague-Dresden, 16-19 October 2019

    Friends,

    I’ve been told by Adam Viktora that the 2019 Zelenka Festival & Conference will kick off on the 340th birthday of our composer, Wednesday 16 October. The conference will be held on Friday 18 October and Jan Stockigt expects that there will be “surplus” of papers, so hopefully we will get a strong contribution from the amazing Australians like last year.

    Further dates and program details will be given soon.

    The full program of the upcoming conference has been announced, see below. There are some really interesting papers this year and the one I am looking most forward to is from Pavel Jurák, who will argue that three anonymous sacred works (now missing) in Zelenka’s inventory were composed by the great Porpora. We know that Zelenka owned opera arias of Porpora but I have always found the absence of his sacred works in Zelenka’s collection to be somewhat strange. It will be exciting to hear if Jana Perutková, one of the finest Czech musicologists, has new information about performances of Zelenka’s oratorios in the Bohemian and Moravian lands. Jan Stockigt’s study of Zelenka’s first Mass comes at a great time with the eagerly awaited CD recording of Ensemble Inegal to be released later this year. Andrew Frampton’s forensic research into Zelenka's music continues and this year he will tackle a neglected part of Zelenka studies, namely how the composer reworked and reused parts of his own compositions. Sadly, Shelley Hogan can not be with us so her paper will be read by Samantha Owens. Throughout the years I have here in the forum referred to Shelley’s in-depth study of the basso continuo section of the Dresden Hofkapelle, and now we finally get to hear what she has found. A special guest is the brilliant David Irving who will demonstrate the difference between the French and Italian bowing techniques used by the concert master Woulmyer and his successor Pisendel. In my paper I will present the fruits of my continuing research in the Dresden archives, while using the opportunity to crush a couple of especially annoying myths... And finally, with the conference dedicated to the memory of Wolfgang Horn, it is fitting that Fred Kiernan shares with us details from his wide-ranging interview with Horn.

    Dear all,

    first, thanks to djdresden for the full program of the conference!

    I´m very much looking forward to welcome you to the beautiful city of Prague again. Can I propose a meeting in a pub/restaurant on Tuesday 15th of October, or are there any plans already in motion?

    And lastly, although it´s missing from the English version of the website, there is an accompanying event to the festival, in which my ensemble is playing a part:

    Thursday 17th of October, 17 P.M. – Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and St. Charles the Great, Prague (map)
    Tridentine votive mass of the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist
    In honour of the memory of Jana Dismase Zelenky a Professor Wolfgang Horn

    Music (all pieces can be found in Zelenka´s Collectaneorum Musicorum):
    Giovanni P. da Palestrina - Missa de beata Virgine (1567)
    Girolamo Frescobaldi - Recercar, F 12.32 (1635)
    Luigi Battiferri - Ricercaro ottavo (1669)

    Performers: Spherae sonantes a Svobodné hudební bratrstvo.

    Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/489680454916931/

    If there is anyone who wish to sing the gregorian chant of the mass proper with us, you are all welcome! (I´m counting on Seb)

    Don´t worry, the timing of this event is arranged so that there´ll be plenty of time to get to the concert of Collegium Marianum at 19.30 P.M.

    See you all in a couple of weeks!

    Cheers

    Odie
