HONIGOVA ORCHESTER EISENBERG SYCHA
The recordings of the recently-discovered Piano Concerto in E flat major and Sinfonia in C major by Bohemian composer Johann Joseph Rosler bring insight into the work of an outstanding musician, who worked in Prague and Vienna at the beginning of the 19th century. Although his creative period was relatively short, he composed more than 200 works and became famous as a talented composer, virtuoso pianist, and popular Kapellmeister. Rosler’s name is mentioned in most 19th century dictionaries, but in the 20th century his work was almost forgotten. Alena Hönigová completed harpsichord studies in the Prague Academy of Music, going on to her soloist´s diploma with Giedré Lukšaité Mrázková and Zuzana Růžičková in 1999. From 1999 to 2004 she pursued postgraduate studies at the “Schola Cantorum Basiliensis“ concentrating on the harpsichord, fortepiano, thoroughbass and improvisation. Her teachers were Andrea Marcon, Edoardo Torbianelli, Jesper Christensen, Gottfried Bach and Emmanuel le Divellec. Her special project was the collection “Song of Solomon“ by Salamone Rossi, which she wrote a treatise on and recorded.
