Edmund Pascha (300th Birth Anniversary) – Juraj Zrunek
Harmonia pastoralis - Christmas Mass


Our Christmas concert marks the three-hundredth anniversary of the birth two composers. The first, a major reformer of opera composition, Christoph Willibald Gluck, will be heard in a suite of ballet music from his most famous opera, "Orfeo ed Euridice". The second is composer Edmund Pascha, a native of Kroměřiž, who spent most of his life in Prešov and Žilina. The Kremnická Mint issued a silver jubilee collectible coin in honor of Pascha.  Recent research has shown that Pascha's Christmas Mass "Harmonia Pastoralis" was really written by a Franciscan monk named Juraj Zrunek; however, in the minds of the musical public the Mass still carries the name Pascha as the composer.  Solo parts in the mass will be taken by  opera singers from the youngest generation of students at the Academy of Performing Arts Bratislava. The program will also contain two Baroque masterworks: the pastoral "Christmas" Concerto Grosso by Archangelo Corelli; and Vivaldi's Concerto for Four Violins, with solo parts taken by members of the Orchestra. Partnering all of these performers will be the principal guest conductor of the Slovak Sinfonietta, Leoš Svárovský.
