Collegium 1704 & Collegium Vocale 1704 with Václav Luks at Desingel

The concert hall in Antwerp will resound with the tones of two significant compositions of the Baroque music: "Missa Salisburgensis" by Heinrich Biber and "Selva morale e spirituale" by Claudio Monteverdi. The concert of Collegium 1704 and Collegium Vocale 1704 conducted by Václav Luks will take place on 23rd September 2016 and it is dedicated to all fans of classical music.

The Collegium 1704 and Collegium Vocale 1704 ensembles were founded by the harpsichordist and conductor Václav Luks in 2005 on the occasion of the Bach–Prague–2005 project, marking the beginning of residential collaboration with the Prague Spring International Music Festival. In 2008, they began the Prague-Dresden Musical Bridge concert series, which continues the rich cultural traditions of the two cities. Collaboration with the renowned soloists Magdalena Kožená, Vivica Genaux, and Bejun Mehta naturally led, in 2012, to a second concert series, called Collegium 1704 in the Rudolfinum (formerly Baroque Opera Stars), held at the Rudolfinum – Dvořák Hall in Prague. Since autumn 2015, the two concert series merged into one Season held in Prague and Dresden. Following international successes with opera performance of Handel’s Rinaldo (directed by Louise Moaty) in 2009, the year of 2013 was devoted to rediscovery of the Czech composer Josef Mysliveček. His opera l’Olimpiade (directed by Ursel Herrmann) was presented by Collegium 1704 in Prague, Caen, Dijon, Luxembourg, Theater an der Wien and it was nominated for The International Opera Awards.
