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.
