Bach         Cantata 'Ich habe genug', BWV82
Brentner  Concerto No.1 in G minor (from Horae pomeridianae)

A first Festival visit from one of the Czech Republic's leading Baroque ensembles sees them introduce us to music by Jan Dismas Zelenka (who, despite being a leading musician at the Dresden court and the most famous Bohemian composer of the 18th century, is still one of Baroque music's best-kept secrets) and by the lesser-known Prague-based composer Johann Joseph Ignaz Brentner. The programme also includes Bach's noble and moving solo cantata Ich habe genug.

'Truly remarkable, and Viktora's conducting is in turn staggeringly exciting and sensitive... A major discovery.'

Tickets £25, £20, £15, £10


This concert will be recorded for broadcast in The Early Music Show at 1.00pm on Sunday 5 June.
