Period ensemble, Spiritato!, and Barts Chamber Choir are performing a wide-ranging and colourful Zelenka programme this Autumn, promoted by Bury Court Opera.
The dates are: Tuesday 20th October at St. John's Smith Square, London, and Sunday 1st November at Bury Court Barn, Bentley, Hampshire.
Here's the concert music list:
ZWV 212, Trumpet fanfare I
ZWV 61, Il Serpente di Bronzo - Opening and closing Coro
ZWV 181, Trio Sonata No.3 in B-flat major
BWV 50, Nun ist das Heil und die Kraft
ZWV 177, Il Diamante - Sinfonia, Terra's Recitative and Arias 2 and 3
ZWV 212, Trumpet fanfare II
ZWV 20, Missa Dei Filii
Eliana Pretorian is singing solo soprano, Magid El-Bushra, counter-tenor/alto, and bass & tenor solos will be taken from members of Barts Chamber Choir. Julian Perkins, harpsichordist and conductor, is directing the concerts.
The selection of pieces is quite impressive, and showcases Zelenka's joyous energy and style. I am looking very much forward to coming to the Bury Court date myself.
I hope others here might be able to come along to one of the concerts too!
