    Default ZWV 12 and the sepolcri in Utrecht!

    Dear all,

    Great news: two performances of music of Zelenka in August in Utrecht, during the Ancient Music Festival:
    - another performance of the Divi Xaverii Mass, ZWV 12, performed by Vaclav Luks and Collegium 1704
    http://www.oudemuziek.nl/agenda/alle...ollegium-1704/ When you can't be there: usually this concert is broadcasted.
    - the three sepolcri, performed by Collegium Marianum: http://www.oudemuziek.nl/agenda/alle...3%A1dov%C3%A1/

    I know I'll be there!

    Best wishes,
    Peter

    Ha! Yes! Surely this shall be filmed and broadcasted Sadly I'll be elsewhere during the concert itself. Can't wait to see and hear online though.
    I'd be fascinated to hear/see Collegium 1704 perform Tůma's Stabat Mater LIVE too. As of February, it and some Zelenka choral pieces have been on this release by Collegium 1704, as a part of the 18th-Century Suprahon Prague series: here

    I just bought the CD, haha

    Talking Re: ZWV 12 and the sepolcri in Utrecht!

    UTRECHT 2014 - ONE OF THE GREATEST ZELENKA TRIUMPHS EVER!
    Two days after Collegium 1704's European concert premiere of ZWV 12 Missa divi Xaverii in Utrecht, I'm still unable to recover from the shock of joy
    the event gave me. My CD with the radio download has been spinning almost uninterruptedly the last 48 hours - and will continue to do so for many,
    many more days still.

    The Spanish radio channel rtve.es has made the whole concert available. ZWV 12 starts around 01:34:00 here: Enjoy!
    http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/audios/f...08-14/2733136/

    So, what about my maybe unrealistically high expectations both to ZWV 12 and C.1704's performance? They were actually surpassed! Despite the large
    variation in instrumentation between the numbers, Zelenka's transitions orchestral, solistic, vocal and choral parts ecc. seem effortless and
    natural, and Zelenka's effortless playfulness was perfectly reflected by an ensemble in top form! Although some of the remaining source material is
    ambivalent, Luks' choice of an oboe d'amore obbligato in Hana Blazikova's mysterious benedictus-aria, for example, totally seduced me!

    But what made this event truly unique is the fact that the triumph took place on so many levels simultaneously: The rediscovery of a major work that
    confirms JDZ's status among the most important composers ever, the privilege of having this work brought back to life by world-class performers with
    a special dedication for Zelenka, the demonstration beyond any doubt that collaborative, long-lasting scholarly labour with difficult source material
    pays off in the end - it can be both fruitful and enjoy appreciation by musicians and listeners alike. And, finally, the possibility to stage this
    perfect fusion of the factors mentioned in front of 2000 people during a prestigious concert broadcasted live. In short: Compositional quality,
    performance quality, scholarly quality and good publicity - they all come together in a rare, higher unit thanks to Collegium 1704's and Vaclav Luks'
    brave initiative.

    Let us hope that Collegium 1704 will choose to let their long and hard pioneering work on ZWV 12 take a more permanent form in the shape of a CD
    recording as well, maybe in combination with the horn litany ZWV 156 that originally completed Zelenka's musical program for the S. Francis Xavier
    celebrations in 1729 together with ZWV 12, or with Collegium 1704's maybe greatest Zelenka "hit", the ZWV 146 Te Deum?
    Personally I will be happy to contribute economically t a CD, if that's an issue.
    Whatever happens, though, we should remain forever grateful to Luks and his fabulous Collegium 1704 for this huge concert achievement.

    *VIDEO-UPDATE!*

    AVROTROS has uploaded, in full high-quality HD, the whole concert performance on to Youtube. Even more stunning!

    Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcGz...nhQ-VZM4P1bUMQ

    Unfortunately, they have neglected to put Zelenka's name, nor the composition's name, in the video title, nor in the 'About' section!!
    This makes it a whole lot harder for anyone to find it on the internet... hence why I only found this video 4 days after it's upload date. Makes me wonder how many other video-gems are out there, unsearchable! The same also happened with the brilliant concert video of 'Il Diamante' performed by Ensemble Inégal two years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ATUqPZltrg . They did include it in the 'About' section, which at least makes it possible to find, however

    All the best,
    Seb

    Many thanks again for both links. This Utrecht upload shows a very enthusiastic audience. Collegium 1704 gives the impression of being very symbiotic.

    Update on the AVROTROS video:

    They have now since added the information! (Credit goes to the speedy feedback response from them (I tweeted them about the issue! ))

    Enjoy
    And here's a link for both the ZWV 12 and the Fux "Te Deum" where the radio stream is digitally improved to CD-quality (.flac), and each work divided into its original set of movements (19 for MdXaverii). This is about as close one can get to a CD witout having a real CD: http://mediafire.com/download/6q5b1uvvrb6l4yx/Zelenka__M_Divi_Xavierii-Fux_Tedeum__K-270-Luks_2014_Utrecht.rar
