YOU ARE ASLEEP, MY SOUL / ST GUNTHER’S CHURCH IN DOBRÁ VODA U HARTMANIC
A community programme in the church surroundings 7:00pm – 9:00pm a concert by Markéta Cukrová – vocals, Kateřina Ghannudi – harp, Jan Krejča – lute, theorba
The Baroque Church of St Gunther was built in 1706 by Baron František Karel Villani on the site of a former chapel. The church is the only church in the Czech Republic dedicated to St Gunther.
It was used as a military storehouse during the Communist regime. The repaired church was consecrated again in 1995 to mark 950 years since the death of St Gunther.
The glass altar and other glass artefacts were placed here later by the glass artist Vladimíra Tesařová.
The afternoon programme will take place around the church. In the evening, the last concert of the festival, titled YOU ARE ASLEEP, MY SOUL, will present music from the early Baroque era in Italy. Melancholic and emotional music will be performed in compositions by Giulio and Francesca Caccini, Tarquinius Meruly and others. The combination of two string instruments in solo and collective pieces is one of the most attractive combinations of the Baroque repertory and sounds in harmony with the human voice.
Performers: Markéta Cukrová – mezzo-soprano, Kateřina Ghannudi – harp, Jan Krejča – lute, theorba.
2:00pm – 6:00pm a community programme around the church
