Jan Dismas Zelenka was raised in Central Bohemia, educated in Prague and Vienna, and spent his professional life in Dresden.  The greatest success during his career was the performance of the extensive composition ‘Sub olea pacis et palma virtutis’ in the presence of the Emperor Charles VI, shortly after his coronation as king of Bohemia in 1723.
