Magdalena started her autumn tour of Czech Republic and Germany in Ostrava, together with Václav Luks and his Collegium 1704. The audience of the jubilee 15th year of their St. Wenceslas Music Festival received the programme Garden of Wail with enthusiasm; reviews in Czech and more pictures from the concert are available here.

Magdalena is a Garden of Wail guide in a program composed of dramatic scenes of famous female heroes such as Armida or Ariadne, as well as lesser-known stories of devoted love, such as the story of the Ero nymph. The music of Italian cantatas by George Friedrich Händel complements the works of his Venetian and Nepolian contemporaries, and the flames of Italian music blend in with the passion of immortal stories.
