Markéta Cukrová’s concert is among those carried over from last season. This sought-after mezzo-soprano is praised for her exceptional versatility and the sensitivity with which she approaches music ranging from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. She will be joined by harpist Kateřina Ghanudi and theorbo player and guitarist Jan Krejča.
Francesco del Nicolino
Tu dormi, anima mia
Se ridete gioiose
Dolci miei sospiri
Tasteggio soave pro theorbu sólo
Due luci ridenti
Lasciatemi qui solo
Capriccio detto Bischizzoso for harp and theorbo
Ecco di dolci raggi
Io che armato sin hor
Amor crudo, fior tiranno
Ricercar sopra il canto di Costantio Festa for harp solo
Amarilli mia bella
Canzonetta spirituale sopra la Nanna
Instead of the initially planned programme with contemporary music, the soloist will be presenting herself in a completely different light. The instrumentation itself reveals that we are going back several centuries. Italy of the first half of the 17th century was an especially noted centre for vocal music. The programme of the evening consists mainly of music by G. Caccini and C. Monteverdi that perhaps has never before been heard in this hall.
