Annotation

The Lent concert will present the works of two giants of the Neapolitan School of opera, Alessandro Scarlatti and Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, featuring the soloists Hana Blažíková and Markéta Cukrová in what will be a truly unique musical experience.

 

The impressive Stabat Mater by Alessandro Scarlatti is notable for its extraordinarily rich musical textures, stirring and dramatic passages and visceral laments. The meditative duetto Quam sordet mihi terra by Giovanni Battista Pergolesi will receive its modern-day premiere at the concert. The Sonata Al Santo Sepolcro by Antonio Vivaldi is an exceptional composition, akin in its musical form to the preludes to the rites carried out at the Holy Sepulchre on Good Friday. The Flute Concerto in E Minor by the Southern French composer Pierre-Gabriel Buffardin demonstrates the full range of mastery on the instrument and is notable for the influence of Vivaldi. As a flute virtuoso Buffardin spent almost his entire musical career in Germanic countries and, for a short time, he was even flute teacher to the celebrated Johann Joachim Quantz.
