    Te Deum

    The legendary Medieval sequence Stabat Mater is a telling of the Passion story through the eyes of the Virgin Mary, reaching out with her hands from beneath the cross to her dying son. The text inspired František Ignác Tůma to compose a four-voice cantata with the same title. Antonio Caldara was another member of the circle of composers surrounding the Viennese court. His duets and trios demonstrate his experience with opera as well as with sacred polyphony. Another composer who worked wonders with polyphony was Antonio Lotti, whose various musical settings of the Crucifixus are among the most beautiful choral compositions in this format.

    Il giardino dei sospiri

    The dramatic fate of female heroes has inspired artists since antiquity and stories full of passion, love, grief, but also defiance, joy, and determination have become the subject of artistic representation in literature, art and music. Magdalena Kožená will be a guide in a program composed of dramatic scenes of famous female heroes such as Armida or Ariadne, as well as lesser-known stories of devoted love, such as the story of the Ero nymph. The music of Italian cantatas by George Friedrich Händel complements the works of his Venetian and Nepolian contemporaries, and the flames of Italian music blend in with the passion of immortal stories.

    Sacred Händel

    Handel composed many Italian arias and cantatas after his stay in Italy in 1707-1709. They are very contemplative and evokes the ecstasy of the soul as well as show virtuosity and emotions.
    Handel’s many concertos, whose form is inspired by Corelli and also by the traditional form of church sonatas, met with great success when they were executed, whether placed in the middle of an opera or of an oratorio.

    Lamento di tre amanti

    After 1700, a whole generation of outstanding late-Baroque composers were led by a kind of nostalgia to return to the madrigal, a vocal form of the late Renaissance. A hundred years after the fact, they revived for a time the genre of five-voice musical settings of secular texts, now with the rhetoric of the Baroque era and often accompanied by thoroughbass. Antonio Lotti, Antonio Caldara, Alessandro Scarlatti, and Alessandro Stradella were among those who left behind a noteworthy legacy of compositions in the genre.

    Intensity of musical expression and perfection of counterpoint are characteristic features of the works of both Johann Sebastian Bach and Jan Dismas Zelenka. In spite of this, the music of these two geniuses differs greatly. Bach's music is grounded in Germany's Lutheran traditions, while Zelenka's music exhibits a Catholic ethos and Italian sensibilities, and the two contrast with each other like water and fire.

    Mass in B minor

    Its very first publisher, Hans-Georg Nägeli, already termed this mass “the greatest musical masterpiece of all times and nations.” The unsurpassed quality of this colossal work has fascinated musicians and concert-goers for more than 250 years. But this same boundless respect as well as performance traditions handed down from the times of Romanticism have functioned as blinders, preventing us from seeing the mass without bias or preconceptions. Even if it is impossible to discover any universal truth about how to perform it, Collegium 1704 will look in on this brilliant work without fear although still with humility and try to show its magnificently vivid colours without the accumulated patina of interpretive tradition.
