The season 2020—21 will be inaugurated by one of the most famous works in the history of music, Handel’s Messiah, and this “messianic” spirit pervades the dramaturgy of the whole concert series. The unconventional programme of the Advent concert will recreate the atmosphere of Italian Baroque Christmas and we shall celebrate the arrival of the New Year with Mozart’s Coronation Mass.


Zelenka's Sub olea pacis et palma virtutis in Rudolfinum

Collegium 1704 for the first time in Herne on 17th November at 7:00PM
 MG 9129The coronation of Emperor Charles VI as King of Bohemia in 1723 in Prague was an event that drew the attention of all of Europe. The gala performance of the opera Costanza e fortezza by the imperial court composer J. J. Fux attracted the musical giants of the Old World to Prague, and sitting next to each other in the enormous orchestra conducted by A. Caldara were the composers J. J. Quantz, F. Conti, L. Weis, F. Benda, and J. D. Zelenka. Zelenka, favorite of the Bohemian nobility, was entrusted with the creation of a work that
constituted the second highpoint of the celebrations and a counterpart to the coronation opera. In terms of its purpose, impressive character, and conception, the allegorical scenic melodrama Sub olea pacis is an extraordinary work not only in the context of Zelenka’s music, but also in the context of the history of Czech music.
