Known for his eclectic and fascinating programs, conductor and pianist David Greilsammer (b. 1977) is recognised as one of today’s most audacious classical artists. The New York Times recently selected his recital Scarlatti:Cage:Sonatas as one of the ten most important musical events of the year. Previously, The New York Times has awarded two of David Greilsammer’s albums, Baroque Conversations and Mozart-In-Between, among the best recordings of the year. Known as a unique interpreter of both baroque and contemporary music, David Greilsammer is also celebrated for his Mozart performances. In 2008, he performed in Paris all of Mozart’s piano Sonatas in a one day “marathon” and in recent years, he recorded various albums devoted the composer. More recently, he played and conducted Mozart’s twenty-seven piano concertos, in one single season. Since 2013, David Greilsammer is Music and Artistic Director of the Geneva Camerata (GECA).

piano Steffen Schleiermacher


Steffen Schleiermacher, the German pianist, is distinguished by his wide-ranging repertoire and his tireless efforts to draw attention to the lesser-known chapters of the modern history of music. Among other projects, this has led him to a thoroughgoing survey of pre-war Russian (Soviet) and Czech modernism, the results of which he released on the CDs Soviet Avant-Garde I, II (Hat Hut Records, 1994 and 1998) and Czech Avantgarde. Piano Music 1918–1938 (MDG, 2002). This evening’s programme is informed by this study.

ISANG YUN Inventions for two oboes
JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH Sonata No. 6 in G major, for oboe, English horn, bassoon and continuo
MAREK KOPELENT Amor vincit, trio for soprano, oboe and English horn on a medieval Latin text (composition commissioned by the Moravian Autumn Festival, world premiere in the composer’s presence)
JAN DISMAS ZELENKA Sonata No. 6 in C minor, for two oboes, bassoon and continuo


Ensemble Berlin Prag: oboe, English horn Dominik Wollenweber, oboe Vilém Veverka, bassoon Mor Biron, fortepiano Barbara Maria Willi, kontrabas Ulrich Wolff,
soprano Irena Troupová (guest)


The concert by Ensemble Berlin Prag is framed by two out of a set of six trio sonatas by Jan Dismas Zelenka (1679–1745), completed probably in the early 1720s. Except for Sonata No. 3, the six sonatas are written for two oboes, a bassoon and basso continuo. The instruments chosen and the technical demands placed on the performers probably indicate the outstanding proficiency of the oboists at the court in Dresden where Zelenka was employed at the time. Sonata No. 4 in G minor is the longest of the set and ends with a jocose rondo. Sonata No. 6 in C minor is dark and reflective in character; Zelenka adopted the material for the third movement from his Capriccio No. 4 in A major, and included virtuoso passages for solo instruments in the last movement.


The concert will be recorded by the Czech Radio.

What the pieces performed this evening have in common is not just the Italian origin of their composers but also the era of the late Baroque, when they were written. The title of the concert, Agitata, refers not just to the closing musical number, but equally to the mood of the whole programme. A certain “agitation” or “excitation” is implied by the contrast between instrumental and vocal-instrumental works, as well as by the opposed affects expressed by the compositions – a technique that is typical of the Baroque era.


The concert is held under the auspices of the Embassy of the Republic of Italy to the Czech Republic.
