    LACHRIMAE

    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.

    Cherubini & Kurpiński

    The Requiem in C minor for mixed chorus was written by Luigi Cherubini in 1816 and premiered 21 January 1817 at a commemoration service for Louis XVI of France on the twenty-third anniversary of his beheading during the French Revolution. The work was greatly admired by BeethovenSchumann and Brahms.
    Karol Kurpiński was one of the most revered composers before Frédéric Chopin, and helped to lay the foundations of a national style and prepared the ground for Polish music of the Romantic period. He contributed to the development of Polish opera, introducing new musical devices and achieving a novel mode of expression.

    Krakowiacy i Górale

    The two-act opera Cud mniemany, czyli Krakowiacy i Górale (The supposed miracle, or Cracovians and Highlanders), with words by Wojciech Bogusławski, the father of Polish theatre, and music by Jan Stefani, a Prague-born composer enamoured of Polish culter and traditions, was first performed in Warsaw on 1 March 1794. The Miracle, a story adorned with beautiful music that draws liberally on traditional folk output, glorified the timeless values of virtue, truth and mutual respect.

    Zelenka: Missa 1724

    At the beginning of the 1720s, Jan Dismas Zelenka introduced himself as a mature composer thoroughly cultivating his own individual music language being rich in a creative spirit and energy. Around 1724, Zelenka composed several individual compositions of the Mass ordinary which connects a unified music expression and uses the instrumentation unusual for Zelenka, involving trombone sounds. Imaginary Mass consisting of these compositions presents an unknown part of Zelenka´s music on the treshold of his creative matureness.

    Komm, Jesu, komm

    Whenever Johann Sebastian Bach devoted himself to a musical form, he mastered it perfectly. This also applies to his six choral motets, most of which are written in the double choir style. The joyously jubilant motet Singet dem Herrn, the calming Fürchte Dich nicht and Komm, Jesu, komm, full of hope and surrender, are among the gems of vocal music. The important collection of twenty-seven responsories for Holy Week of 1723 demonstrates the brilliant counterpoint and the depth of emotion of the music of Jan Dismas Zelenka, the greatest Czech composer of the Baroque era.

    Historia di Jephte

    Historia di Jephte, the tragic tale of a Jewish king who sacrificed his only daughter to the Lord after victory in war, is one of the most famous of Carissimi’s fourteen oratorios. On the other hand, Missa L’homme armé, an important parody Mass for triple choir based on the well-known Renaissance chanson melody, is one of the lesser-known works of Giacomo Carissimi, and its authorship has been attributed to him primarily on the basis of compositional parallels.

    Resurrection

    The music of Händel’s Roman period abounds with the originality, virtuosity, and boundless imagination of the young composer. Händel’s treatment of the stirring combat between good and evil exhibits the dramatic sweep of a master of Baroque opera. The work stands out for its extraordinarily colourful instrumentation, and it places great demands on all of the soloists and especially on the key roles of the Angel and Lucifer.
