Being the senior composer at the court, Jan Dismas Zelenka served as acting Kapellmeister during the absence of Hasse in this period, assuming all the responsibilities that came with this temporary position, and this included providing secular vocal music for the regular chamber concerts held at the royal palace in Dresden. Today, the Saxon State and University Library in Dresden holds the remnants of Zelenka’s private collection of arias, duets and cantatas acquired for use in these concerts and as study materials for the young Italian singers and himself.  As a result, the arias we hear today are some of the most beautiful Vivaldi ever wrote, with the breathtaking “Gelido in ogni vena” being perhaps the crown jewel in Zelenka’s fascinating collection of secular vocal music.

The Prague-Dresden Zelenka Festival  offers a one-day conference where  well-known Zelenka researchers will present their unpublished findings about Zelenka´s work and life. The aim of the Zelenka Conference is to create a platform to give publicity to the results of contemporary foreign research on Zelenka. In addition, it should bring inspiration to restart research of Zelenka´s work which has been standing still for many years in the Czech Republic.
