Dear Zelenka friends,
a truly exciting concert is coming up in France. The brilliant Collegium 1704 will perform the complete Offices for the dead which Zelenka wrote for the funeral of August the Strong in 1733. This consists of the Requiem ZWV 46 and the Invitatorium, Lectiones and Responsoria ZWV 47. Although these works have been played before it will be the first time they have been performed together. The concert will take place at the Festival La Chaise-Dieu, Saturday 22nd of August. And it will be broadcast live on France Musique for those of us not able to attend!
I have also been told this will probably be recorded and released, presumably on ZZT.
