Václav Luks leads Collegium 1704 and Collegium Vocale 1704 in Baroque works by Slavic composers: Poland’s Marcin Mielczewski and Bartłomiej Pękiel, and Bohemia’s Jan Dismas Zelenka. Tonight’s program was recorded live in concert August 24, 2021, in the Warsaw Philharmonic Concert Hall, as part of the 17th international music festival titled Chopin and Europe. We won’t hear works by Chopin on Baroque&Before, of course, but we will hear works from the baroque era that emphasize the “more distant” connections to the romantic works of Chopin.

Thanks to Classical WFMT’s association with the European Broadcasting Union, Baroque&Before is able to present this program as a stream for 30 days following the broadcast. A blue “Listen” button will appear when the stream is accessible.
