Jan Dismas Zelenka is one of the most important representatives of the Bohemian Baroque. Although he spent most of his life at the court of the Elector of Saxony in Dresden, his music is closer to the Italian style of the Catholic Viennese Baroque than the German Protestant tradition. J.S. Bach himself was among his admirers. These poignant Lamentationes, to bible texts taken from the Book of Jeremiah, were performed during Holy Week.
We are sorry to say that the concert by Paul Dombrecht & Il Fondamento has been cancelled. You may have heard media reports that Il Fondamento would not receive any subsidies from the Flemish government for their activities in the period 2017-2021. This is the reason behind their decision to cancel their future concerts.
