Works by Czech Baroque composer J. D. Zelenka and G. F. Händel in Rudolfinum

Zelenka‘s last mass composition, Missa Omnium Sanctorum, is an example of emotionally charged style of extreme virtuosity, which is based main­ly on the Italian Catholic tradition but showered with Zelenka‘s originality and astonishing inven­tion. Händel's music for the psalm Dixit Dominus also pushes the limit of interpretation possibi­lities: the listener is truly overwhelmed by the endless fireworks of ideas and the employment of various compositional techniques.

Program: 

  • G. F. Händel
    Dixit Dominus HWV 232
  • J. D. Zelenka
    Missa Omnium Sanctorum ZWV 21
