All that is left doing will be the autograph M.S which thankfully survives - I will upload that in full 4k resolution to my new channel "ZelenkaGuru"...
My god Ensemble Inégal are on fire... I already completed the score-video of the Missa Charitatis over a year ago, and have been awaiting this moment for too long... I can not wait!
I suppose this is the best place for me to put this: in time you can forget that playlist, as I have established a new channel dedicated to full resolution 4k score-videos of Zelenka's original manuscripts (and copyist manuscripts where lacking...), subscribe here:ZelenkaGuruA depository and evolution of formerly "TheOneAndOnlyZeno" score video channel, dedicated solely to the highest quality, full resolution and 4k score-videos of…www.youtube.com
Hello all! I want to welcome my fellow Zelenkians to join a new Discord server that I made, dedicated to Jan Dismas Zelenka (1679-1745):Discord - A New Way to Chat with Friends & CommunitiesDiscord is the easiest way to communicate over voice, video, and text. Chat, hang out, and stay close with your friends and communities.discord.gg
It contains, but is not limited to:
• Sheet music
• Score Videos
• Live Performances
• Librettos (i.e. for his oratorios and aria's, such as the 8 Italian, ZWV 176, as well as some obscure sacred texts, like that of ZWV 59, Attendite et Videte...)
• Lore and information surrounding Zelenka's life and individual compositions
• Complete list of his ZWV catalogue, for easy reference when looking for works, defined part by part as genres (i.e. ZWV 1-23, Masses, ZWV 24-30, xxx, etc...)
• Useful links to different Zelenka themed websites / content
I hope you can join me on the quest to make ZELENKA as famous as BACH, Johann Sebastian that is.
The video above ( uploaded on my channel, which contains now over 200 score-videos of Zelenka, if you didn't know ), the recordings referenced were obtained from extensive searching throughout the internet, after having studied the "historical" recordings section of this website, found here:
I plan to obtain the rest eventually, if possible - and upload them to Youtube also. But they are incredibly rare, most likely expensive - and possibly vinyls, which if so, would be quite difficult to transfer to a computer.
Yes, very much agreed! Thanks for sharing. Orliński packs a punch. Zelenka's more galante style is conveyed with great energy and lightness by Il Pomo D'oro (The Tomato! )
You may be interested Xanaseb - as well as others, that I have discovered excerpts of the score to this very rarely performed masterpiece of Zelenka - it is of course from a study by the revered scholar Janice Stockigt, on pages 6-7, with bonus material of Chvalte Boha silného (ZWV 165), though I am one of the very few if only in the world to have access to the complete published score of the latter which I obtained on the furthest and darkest recesses of the internet, and typeset, available on Youtube here:
The article in question, in which Janice Stockigt studies the influence of Polish folksong and dances on Zelenka's music, here (Laetatus sum, ZWV 90 excerpts on pages 6-7):
Can't delete this thread, but came across additional information that made this post now irrelevant, so leaving this here for a moderator to clean up - sorry.
What I would give for the score of Laetatus sum! The ZWV 90 setting is very intricate with highly animated melodies in the first and last movements respectively... would love to study it, however it seems that no published score exists - yet the performers would have had to have access to the score somehow....
Hello - it is my first thread and post on this website, looking forward to contributing as much as I can to the help and interest of my fellow Zelenkians, my name is Jamie Holdham - a composer and Urtext transcriber of original manuscripts into beautiful and professional typeset scores.
I have a Youtube channel where I post a score-video every single day, and I more importantly have a playlist where I have dedicated almost 200, as of 06/01/2022, score-videos of Jan Dismas Zelenka in the form of original manuscript scores, typeset scores, and in the worst case scenario - using copyist scores, as in the case of ZWV 8, the Missa "Navitatis Domini", and ZWV 107, the Magnificat in C Major.
Enjoy studying the master! - and much more to come!
