The newly formed Adelaide Baroque Orchestra is presenting an all Zelenka concert on Sat May 22nd at Elder Hall. The orchestra will be led by violinist Ben Dollman and augmented with a total of eighteen players. Special guests include tenor Robert McFarlane and baroque oboists Adam Masters (Melbourne/Berlin) and Kirsten Barry. Adelaide’s versatile Jackie Newcombe will play baroque bassoon. 

Jan Dismas Zelenka will be well known to all double reed players given his exceptional compositions for oboes and bassoons.

Zelenka is acknowledged as one of the greatest Bohemian musicians of all time. His compositions feature advanced use of counterpoint, placing extreme demands on the musicians but also an unmistakable emphasis on beauty and liveliness. This special program of Zelenka will include three Australian premieres. 

Dr Jan Stockigt, acknowledged as the world’s pre-eminent Zelenka scholar, and author of Jan Dismas Zelenka: A Bohemian Musician at the Court of Dresden, will host the pre-concert talk on Zelenka, his world, and his music. 

Adelaide Baroque has offered a 20% discount for ADRS members for all full and concessional tickets to this concert.

The offer will only be available for online sales only up until Thursday May 20th
