At this evening's concert - which, to the best of our knowledge, features works being performed together for the first time exclusively in Hungary - we will perform four of these grands motets with the collaboration of an outstanding international cast of soloists (and will also make a recording of the event). Following the famous psalmodic setting that provides the title of the concert, the programme presents three works which have sunk almost completely into oblivion since the 18th century. It is likely that the last, Cantate Domino, is being heard here for the first time anywhere in the world since the 1790s.
Our cooperating partner is the Centre de Musique Baroque de Versailles, and I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for the wide-ranging assistance we have received in the extraordinarily exciting field of the French Baroque repertoire. The next, very important stage in our cooperation will be the modern-day world première performance and recording of Mondonville's first opera (Isbé, 1742), here in the Béla Bartók National Concert Hall in March 2016.
