Zelenka oratorio 'I Penitenti to the Sepolchro of the Redentore', in the first place treated in Good Friday 1736 in Dreseden, is a meeting imagined in a tomb of Christ among King David, Mary Magdalene and Peter, with each of some characters lamenting and reflecting on the one who a death of Christ means to them.

In spite of a subject @@@subject an irrepressible Zelenka directs to inject a lot of felicity and elation in his music, and the sound that validates self-evident the characteristic instrumental countless that requires virtuosidad and full use of a potential of an orchestra.

Collegium 1704 Drop a direction of Václav Luks game briskly and vivaciously. One is good soloists here - soprano Mariana Rewerski likes Mary, tenor Eric Stoklossa likes David and more than Tobias under Brendt likes Peter - listen his stirring air 'Tongue perfide' with perfect mandate of row. An only downside is that a sound - registered in a Troja Castle in Prague - is too reverberant for mine in pleasant.

A booklet contains some the brief notes fuller libretto with translations.

Jan Dismas Zelenka is captivating masterpieces of a late baroque is beautiful and uplifting works, and that it is is more be extraordinarily very do fault on disk. Has Have diverse excellent register on some years, beginning with some initiates 1974 version of Heinz Holliger and has sawed. In DG Archiv, and comprising the late plus one of some of some same players in a ECM focus; the version very end for Dombrecht, Ponseele, Banchini, Bond and another; one of some Czech players Jana Brozkova, Vojtech and Jan Jouza, Jaroslav Kubita, Vaclav Hoskovec and Frantisek Xaver Thuri; and now a present action of a Czech period-together instrument Collegium 1704, directed for Václav Luks.

Will declare without further ado it concealed this register of Luks and the company is absolutely exceptional. Some six works, has valued mostly partorisca two oboes, bassoon and low continuous, is rich in the melody and the texture and some seven players aim exceptional feeling partorisca both of these elements, ridding some works with fashion and utmost condition. That is more, a gorgeous sounds of some two oboes and the bassoon are taken animadamente in a register, and in fact a sound has registered is one of some goodnesses more are of this together of two disks.

Zelenka The music is a lot demanding of a player' virtuosidad and expressive powers, and his all locate to an occasion with pointed, alert and committed touching throughout. In fact his all deserve partorisca be appointed in any respectful description, like this here is: Xenia Löffler and Michael Bosch (oboes), Jane Gower (bassoon), Helena Zemanová (violin), Ludĕk Braný (double bass), Shizuko Noiri (lute) and Václav Luks (harpsichord and direction).

These are full actions of character, reflecting and has included emphasising an originality and eccentricity of Zelenka music. The notes of booklet are excellent, and his registered the pleasure in him. Ossia Now my first election among registers of Zelenka sonatas, and is sure to defenders of delight of baroque instrumental music.
4 / 5
The present CD collects the integral of the six sonatas has cataloged like ZWV 181 and writing for near of two oboés - only in the touched nº3 substitutes one of the oboés for a violin- , a bassoon and two down graces -here to the opposition of a double bass (Zelenka was a double bassist in the yard of the Constituent and Rey of Sajonia) joins a clave and the colour of a lute-. The Sonatas are writings in four movements, the exception of the number 5 that has three, and follow the form of the sonatas gives church - four the fast slow/movements/fast/lens- having the mayoria of the merry and some the slow movements with mayor am lasted that the leaves of mayor of the corresponding movements in other composers.
Any hay too register of these sonatas and has informed the intrumentos of the period has likes reference the one of the Neighbour Zefiro modified in 1993 worlds focus AUVIDIS and that does has reedited little in focus he ARCANA.

The parts virtuosas of the same estan very very solved for his ejecutantes, when being especially the soloists of forest of wind the protagonists the notorious plus of the interpretation. If it concealed It we join an extraordinary presentation of the informative script, has a totally recommended product for lovers of the music of baroque camera with exquisiteces little die to the conventionalism.

I seat partorisca say that I have been disappointed in this disk. I want to Bach writing partorisca oboe and some of his movements partorisca oboe and soprano is so only sublimate, but some actions here have not done partorisca me.

Xenia Löffler HAS the lovely tone and Anna Prohsaka the flange is well in his way – but is not a right way partorisca Bach, in mine dress. An oboe and orchestral touching has the slightly plodding feel roughly the and Prohsaka sounds as if it is a goodness in the Romantic work, as although Bach the music is recognisable the does not come never the life and partorisca me loses his essential essence.

Ossia The personal view , of course, and another can enjoy this more than me, but still although it is the very attractive program , can does not recommend.

Another exceptionally amazing Mass for Zelenka, glorious, opulent and noble! His works deserve far more exposed!

A lot of enthusiast in this composer, and a heart is excellent
4 / 5
A Mass Divi Xaverii (painstakingly reconstructed for Václav Luks of a Zelenka autographic together with other sources), more a Litaniae of Sancto Xaverio is laws partorisca date of 1729. A lot of speculation is given in a booklet to the equal that to some circumstances of composition, Santo Francis Xavier when being a personal saint and normalised of Habsburg Archduchess Maria Josepha, woman of Crown Prince Friedrich August II and daughter-in-law of August II 'the Strong', and perhaps when be connected to his devotions to a saint after a death of his edges partorisca the new heir (the one who was later been born in 1730).

The hips looks probably that Zelenka was enthusiast partorisca aim of his musicianship after a death of Kapellmeister Johann David Heinichen in a hope to result permanent successor in an upper musical work in a Dresden yard - so it spends was so only able to resist a place temporarily exiting that it loses to Johann Adolph Hasse. Although that fault of the Create this setting of mass is one of one the majority of glorious for Zelenka in the terms of the vowels and the orchestral forces have employed, and certainly one of one the majority of joyful, lavish and spectacular, and really ought partorisca persuade any up to now unconvinced of Zelenka rightful put in a panteón of Baroque greats in the pair with Handel, Vivaldi and JSB.

With Collegium 1704 and Collegium Vocal 1704, Václav Luks has had the glorious crew of instrumentalists and vocalists around the ones of a time to this part presenting with stunning registers of an a lot of time ignored Zelenka, and once again does not disappoint , with his animate and brisk action under Luks' direction. One has gathered the soloists are also for real glorious - soprano Hana Blažíková it was familiarised to some of numerous register of Zelenka (both with Luks and also with Joint of Viktoria & of Adam Inégal) and JSB among another, but any less impressive is some other soloists beside the his the one who second that it can see has not done with Luks before, Lucile Richardot (listing like this big but really contralto, with the silky androgynous castrated-esque quality, sadly so only taking two pieces of the suns and the desire could have listened more), Kamila Mazalová (big), Václav Č'ížek (tenor) and Stephan Macleod (record). Still it go like this far like this partorisca say that in of the terms of both Zelenka laws and actions of Collegium 1704 & Collegium Vocal 1704, ossia one has listened more still.

JAN DISMAS ZELENKA (1679-1745) - BACH CATHOLIC COUNTERPART:
The BACH DISPLACED' WORHTIEST PIECE of the FINALLY REGISTERED MATE
Jan Dismas Zelenka (JDZ) has been spent for big during his career for more than people except mates like Bach and Telemann. It can not call the composer until some last 10 years of his life - and still then with reservations. Today it is ready partorisca be recognised like this more than entity late baroque composer after the Bach, Handel and Vivaldi. A music of this first complete register of Zwv 47 «Officium defunctorum» & Zwv 46 «Requiem» gives an idea roughly reason.

HISTORICAL CIRCUMSTANCES
in February 1733 Augustus a Strong, Rey of Poland and Constituent of Saxony, died in Warshaw. A clergyman has listened his confession: «When one [priest] has said, that has to that agree, that goes partorisca give an account to an Almighty of his Actions, so much so that Rey & of Man, response, concealed like the man his whole Life had been the continual Sin, which he sincerely repented of; but like the King, there is at all partorisca reproach he of, having has not had never another seen that some abonos of a Country.» (In: Stockigt (2000) p. 197). It is not known if a King there has been his woman Christiane Eberhardine (sees images) import when confessing his sins, but is the public secret that his pair had been the empty formality never of then Augustus had converted the catolicismo in 1697 partorisca assume a Polish Crown. A fact that has produced so only a legitimate heir among a King 267 (!) Illegitimate boys with mistresses (nicknamed «the Strong» partly been due to this) would have to that suffice like this explanation. Outraged for the pragmatism of his husband, Reina Christane refused to give on Protestantism, and has gone the venue self-exile until his death. Consistently You Result the true stoic hero in some eyes of his subjects in Saxony, and Augustus' yard (comprising Zelenka) in Dresden remained the Catholic island in a midst of the vast ocean of Protestantism that has comprised Bach Leipzig. Bach Composition of his a lot of-known «Trauerode» (Bwv 198), a music duquel was later reused in a otherwise has lost S. Mark Passion, was commisioned for the Memorial Service in Leipzig that follows Christane dead in September 1727, and witness to hold to the deep admiration of a city for his.
While a Lutheran Bach compound music for a Queen, a commission of the music of the funerals of a King has been finally to some Catholics Zelenka. Some rites have taken place in Dresden Church of Yard (sees loaded image) 15-19 April 1733, where the heart of Augustus had been spent in a moment. Visually As well as musically, this castrum doloris- the ceremony is resulted one of some the majority of spectacular theatres of death of a baroque integer German.

The OFFICE OF THE DEATH: MEANING And MUSICAL-LITURGICAL USE
According to notes in Zelenka the autograph marks a music has been written in the haste adds. This in spite of, any sign of haste is traceable in JDZ project for some ceremonies. His «Officium defunctorum» (Zwv 47) figure of an initial invitatory Psalm (Ps. 95), I Clue for nine Lessons that is excerpts of the book of an Old of Job, in alternation with nine Psalms of the mainly inspired by responsory New (CD 1: 61,5 min). A Mass «of solemn» Requiem (Zwv 46) finalises an office (CD 2: 40 min). Although a textuel-the musical structure could look unrecognizeable at the beginning, is done in fact like the parallel to a liturgical music during Saint Week: Some Lessons of a three «Nocturn»s (i.et. Some hours chosen for some Readings) in an Office of a Dead person (Officium defunctorum) like this correspond to a familiar more Tenebrae Readings of Jeremiah Laments in Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Saint Saturday respectively, and his «music»/of tone. First-the hand-held accounts of an occasion mention this connection explicitly (my commentaries in group): «Some ceremonies of funerals have been treated for a soul of Augustus with the triduum (period of prayer that last three days). (...) I mornings Has BEEN SUNG in a heart, the priests that gives antiphonal Responsories in an organism of a chapel. Some Italian musicians mournfully has sung some lessons of a prime minister Nocturn in your Lamentationum Jeremiae (like this sung in a way of Jeremiah Lessons and Responsories for a Easter triduum of Saint Week) and some other readings have been continued for a subdeacon, deacon, and priest.» (In: Stockigt (2000) pp. 198-199). Modern actions of Jeremiah Laments and the responsories ignore that these two types of text are suppositions to alternate like this, with cements Responsorial the psalms that answered each canonical Lesson also during Saint Week (the resurrection & of funerals of Christ). Listening to this register of new reference for Collegium 1704 is a better way to comprise music the one who corresponding sooner has suffered for the be taken out of his feigned musical, dramatical and liturgical permance context, for this that runs a risk to look repetitive. Inside the lessons of a Work of the liturgy of the funerals asks existential questions roughly suffering and the presence of the death in a world, while some Responses admit the possibility of salvation also. Reason an original organisation is respected, a full dramatic potential of both literary work masterpiece and Zelenka is in my opinion equally masteful the musical interpretation is spent was, with good help of Collegium 1704 expressive actions. In spite of being a lot of-narrative, this history roughly (a) the suffering and the death of the man is in his only way the worthy counterpart the Bach law roughly the passion of Christ. But while an end of Passions with a death and funeral of Jesus, JDZ the version of a Christian of continuous existential work with his (potentially) happy final. His Requiems refinados corresponds to Easter Sunday, something that explains the optimistic and rich plus that validates here. Theologically, A musical development of an initial restrained to polyphony to the final of operatic approximation coloreada has the precise meaning: If Augustus had suffered and died in imitation of Christ, also has been resurrected in imitation of him on Day of Test. Augustus' The soul would owe that be guaranteed salvation if a power of the musical invocation of a composer is taken the account.

ZELENKA MUSIC
are any musicologist , as I will leave some details of this part of a description the most competent people. Some the brief commentaries will suffice: JDZ the project for a Real Memorial Service tip variac. Considerable in way, of simple Gregorian flange in some last are Lessons and in strategic place elsewhere, to an intricate still refined polyphony in a new Respones and the final Mass, where all the arrivals in the deft interaction that involves all some musical powers a then-legendary Dresden the yard could movilice. To somewhere among these stylistic extremes are some compositions for some first three Lessons with unforgettably coloreados obliged woodwind instruments, rhetorically pertinent partorisca has touched emotionally situations. Especially one the warm bell of one has used seldom chalumeu (Christian Leitherer) in a first Lesson - also used for a reason mentioned in a so only arias during a Requiem - emphasis a content textuel perfectly. The passages notarises them that it describes for example an ocean racked more convincingly, in delicate dialogue with a soloist and a heart, in the invite to mediate in a monumental 10 min Invitatorium this begins everything. One would expect a diverse action has described on to look idiosyncratic and fragmented taken like the whole, but in a contrary is the good example of baroque unit in diversity, and develops so only another side of Zelenka character, like an architect that trace big of the musical structures. Simultaneously some rites of funerals' the composition is JDZ in the nutshell, the representative of some different fashions knows. When This Czech doing in Dresden sometimes is informed to like this Bohemian Bach, several ideas are involved, in the first place his order of counterpoint and polyphony of some 16th and 17th centuries, in the only comparable level to Johann Sebastian he. This characteristic distinguishes both geniuses' musical library of his contemporaries'. An example that encapsulates JDZ' the character in an older fashion could be a delivery of a sentence «Quia in invalid hell is redemptio» of one 7th Responsory. Besides his arias and the hearts develop the talent resembled Bach is to incorporate some operatic developments and notarises them later his work, with the striking melodic invention. The sign is also a capacity to achieve the deep spiritual depths by means of some diverse fashions have used. Still, in spite of all the similarities, somehow some works of comparison so only in theory. JDZ Eccentric, exotic rythms and harmonies and amazing transmissions of direction, together with an unusual mix of ecstasy, melancholy and the superhuman visionary can, confirm an artistic individuality like this strong that included the inexperienced auditors easily recognise among thousand other composers, comprising Bach.

ACTION And REGISTERING
Reason so much is necessary to go in musically, is lucky that this first complete register for Collegium 1704/ Vaclav Luks is excellent. Both hearts and instrumentalists, as well as the majority of soloists, is exceptional, especially Blazikova and Cukrova. A smaller reservation has is that some among some secondary singers in this register of studio of 2010 looks slightly less have prepared that these used during one a lot before action, broadcasted for Half in 2009, which was included better in sure (any all) details. I have learnt to expect a better of Collegium 1704. For this signal out of details that an usually would spend on. My last reservation considers a technician of register. That The emphasis has resupplied a whole 2 CD band, intelligently together place, visually attractive and with interesting illustrations. There is the generous booklet of 55 pages that contains pertinent and competent commentaries so only. One the original Latin is translated to English, French and German. In spite of, a sound has registered is not 100. Occasionally a complex, good-looking tones of some instruments and heart, feigned partorisca interact in the dialogue in of the equal terms with some voices of solos, the look bit it far and achieve my ears with some difficulty. This in spite of, these details turn in a light of a big picture that the shows dip he in a way to a More adds them rediscovery of Bach, Monteverdi and Vivaldi.

A DISCOGRAPHY SELECTED OF ZELENKA VOCAL MUSIC
Although a «Officium defunctorum/ the requiem» is representative shabby so only a CD, very other works are indispensable. My tightened and certainly selection a lot exhaustive of three insiemi underlines to fulfil some following criteria: Each one which so it registered it systematically in a lot of years, and with consistently exceptional results. «Mass votiva» Is an only cast overlap.

Will not squander the words here date another long description. These two pieces for some rites of funerals in 1733 of Frederick Augustus 'A Strong' Constituent of Saxony and the king of Poland is some undiscovered gems of Baroque music. Jan Dismas Zelenka is blessed in fact to have such wondrous champions of his music, spending in his place deserved beside Handel, Vivaldi and J. S. Bach, in a form of Collegium 1704, Collegium Vocal 1704 and a together exceptional of soloists under a direction of Václav Luks.

Buy without hesitation, and then also Luks' & Collegium 1704 is another glorious register of Zelenka.

Note: well compare a prize of another Music to list for some Rites of Funerals of Augustus a Strong which is an exact same product .
