Capella Regia Praha
Organ
The ensemble Capella Regia Praha was founded by leading Czech organist Robert Hugo in 1992 and since then has become one of the best known old music ensembles in this country. Its repertoire consists mostly of Czech and Central European music of the 17th and 18th centuries (Michna, Biber, Cernohorsky, to mention only a few), with a special focus on sacred Baroque drama (oratorios by J. D. Zelenka, G. Carissimi, A. Graghi) and their staging.
Capella Regia Praha regularly performs at renowned festivals within Czech Republic and abroad (Prague Spring, WDR Festival Herne, La semaine sainte Caen, Brno Festival of Sacred Music, Concentus Moraviae, Krakow 2000, Old Music in Jaroslaw).
The ensemble’s discography include the bestselling Czech Christmas Mass by Jakub Jan Ryba with Magdalena Kozena, recorded for the Archiv Produktion of Deutsche Grammophon (the recording went platinum in 2003), an extensive set of Adam Michna’s works (Grammy Classic 1993 Award), and a premiere recording of Jan Dismas Zelenka’s oratorium, Penitenti al Sepolcro del Redentore on the Panton label (1995).
