Exciting radio broadcast coming up
Saturday 10 May, the BR Klassik radio station will broadcast a recording from 3 May, where the Hofkapelle München (formerly Neue Hofkapelle München) and soloists performed three of Zelenka's late works: "Miserere" (ZWV 57); "Litaniae Lauretanae: Salus infirmorum" (ZWV 152); "Missa omnium sanctorum" (ZWV 21).
This orchestra usually performs an ever interesting and often neglected repertoire. A planned release of Zelenka's Miserere (ZWV 56) unfortunately never materialized, see this thread: http://www.jdzelenka.net/forum…f-Miserere-ZWV-56-(not-57!)
Recently the orchestra released a live recording of Hasse's Didone abbandonata (Naxos) worth checking out even though it has its flaws. This opera was performed in Dresden in 1742, during a golden period for the Hofkapelle. It's surely one of the best works of Hasse – some of the arias are out of this world.
Anyway, the Zelenka broadcast starts at 17.05 GMT, Saturday 10 May. For more info see:
