Music from 18th Centrury Prague

A. Vivaldi, J. D. Zelenka, A. Reichenauer

Concertos and ouvertures by Antonin Reichenauer faced with works of Antonio Vivaldi
Audio CD

Unlike the copiously preserved sacred music, instrumental works by Czech composers in the Prague of the first third of the 18th century are as scarce as hen’s teeth. The twenty or so instrumental pieces by Antonín Reichenauer are among the most significant.
Many contemporary musicians would find these concertos extremely difficult. This, however, is certainly not the case of the “wizard” Sergio Azzolini and  Xenia Löffler who also published recording with the same programme. Together with Collegium 1704, they perform Reichenauer’s concertos with a vivacity and energy this music requires.
