Annotation

The Christmas concert will present motets and arias with pastoral themes performed by renowned soloists Martina Janková and Jaromír Nosek. Works by Johann Joseph Fux, a Kapellmeister at the Imperial Court in Vienna, will be played along with compositions by Josef Antonín Sehling, a St. Vitus Kappelmeister and a prominent figure in Prague’s musical life. As a member of Count Morzin’s ensemble, he had the opportunity to become personally acquainted with the music of Antonio Vivaldi, whose works cannot be absent from this concert. A significant influence on the works of the Czech masters, the virtuoso Italian style will also be represented by arias from Christmas cantatas by Nicola Porpora and Giovanni Maria Bononcini. The concert will close with some charming Christmas songs composed by Václav Holan Rovenský.
