Annotation

The concert in the beautiful setting of the Lobkowicz Palace will present vocal works by English composers from the end of the 16th to the beginning of the 18th century, performed by the leading British tenor Charles Daniels, who specialises in this repertoire. Audiences will have an opportunity to hear works by Thomas Morley, John Dowland, Henry Purcell, Mathew Lock and Johann Christoph Pepusch that are only occasionally performed in the Czech Republic. The second half of the programme presents excerpts from the pastoral ode L´Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato (The Cheerful, the Thoughtful, and the Moderate Man) by George Frideric Handel, based on the text of John Milton's poems.
