Jan Dismas Zelenka (1679-1745), a Baroque Period contemporary of Bach, Handel and Telemann, was a musician and composer in the Bohemian court of Dresden. His Capriccios for chamber orchestra are spirited, inventive, melodic and uniquely feature virtuoso writing for pairs of horns, which were used in the hunt, since his patron took pleasure in the hunt and the outdoors. The solo horn parts call for unusual dexterity, stamina and extreme high register playing. The Capriccios feature a variety of dance types, some exotic. For musicological analyses of the Capriccios see the booklet’s detailed notes. Below (on booklet cover) are images and emotions each Capriccio mvmt evoked, a guide to listeners’ likely experiences of this charming music.
