Jan Dismas Zelenka


Magnificat - Missa Nativitatis Domini - Dixit Dominus

The sumptuous resplendence of Dresden shines through in the festive choral works by Jan Dismas Zelenka recorded on the GENUIN classics label by the Marburger Bachchor and L’arpa festante with Nicolo Sokoli conducting. A Magnificat, Christmas Mass and Dixit Dominus setting are featured in the new release. From the highly expressive music, the warm sound of the chorus, the nuanced orchestral accompaniment, the noble singing of the soloists and the convincing overall effect of the recording, there is something appealing to any listener. There is no disputing the high level achieved in this production and the attractiveness of the repertoire – which together will make listeners eager to hear more from these musicians.

Early Music Review
"Sokoli draws out very fine performances from his four soloists, a choir bright of timbre and a lively orchestra. I hope they will explore more of Dresden Hofkapelle repertoire."
Early Music Review, December 2011

Choir & Organ
"This disc of key sacred works is welcome and the outstanding quality of Zelenka´s music apparent from the outset is matched by the period instruments of L´arpa festante and the soloists under Nicolo Sokoli."
Review on Choir & Organ by Matthew Power, March/April 2012
