    Thumbs up Collegium 1704, Zelenka 'Missa 1724'

    Dear all,

    I've just come across this concert advertisement for the Svatováclavský hudební festival:

    https://shf.cz/program/collegium-1704/

    and this from the Collegium website: http://www.collegium1704.com/en/prog...nka-missa-1724


    Václav Luks is putting together the various ZWV manuscripts of the Mass Ordinary from c.1724 and dubbing it 'Missa 1724'. This is very exciting, as these works provide some idea of Zelenka's early period exuberant long-format writing style and use of trombones. It's not technically a world premiere, as most of these have been performed and filmed before by the Russkaya Conservatoria with director Nikolai Khozhdinsky. Here is their meaty performance of the ZWV30 Gloria: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DftEC-Q-NDg, and you can find the Qui Tollis II, Gratias Agimus Tibi and the liberally interpreted Cum Sancto Spiritu (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q5lMvXi03iI it includes timpani!)

    I am very much looking forward to Collegium 1704's interpretation, if I ever get to hear it. I hope some recording will surface.

    Best wishes,

    Seb

    Hello everyone,

    I had the opportunity to actually attend their rehearsal of these mass movements this Tuesday. There, maestro Luks announced that it´s all been already recorded and that the plan for it is to be released during Spring 2020.

    Here´s a little snapshot from the regearsal.

    This is terrific news. With these works to be released by Luks, Ensemble Inegale's upcoming release of ZWV 1 & ZWV 166, plus the recent release of ZWV 191, we are getting closer to having Zelenka’s complete works recorded.

    I am especially hoping that someone will take on these works sooner rather than later:

    ZWV 15 Missa Eucharistica (1733)
    ZWV 128 Six Ave Regina settings (1737)
    ZW 211 Qui nihil sortis (1730s) – anyone who heard this in Prague couple of years ago was blown away by the sheer brilliance of this duet.
    and of course the ZWV 56 Miserere… and the ZWV 212 Trumpet fanfares… and ZWV 4, and...
