Lubeník Collection is an anonymous music manuscript coming fom the second half of the 18th century. In the history of music in Slovakia it represents the domain of the urban music life and practice of town musician in the period of Early Classicism. It contains music designated for the church service, or on private and social secular occasions, as well as music for a refined entertainment of the society of the time. The collection was discovered in Lubeník in the house of Samuel Novák, the teacher of the local school of the Evangelical Church of Augsburg Confession in the period 1873 - 1909. The Lubeník Collection brings us compositions coming from different territories, which have their counterparts in the sources of instrumental music form the 17th century and the first half of the 18th century as concordances, variants, or exceptionally popular period dances as the most prevalent repertory of the instrumental music from 16th to 18th centuries. The biggest number of concordances relate the Lubeník Collection to the sources of keyboard music from the second half of the 18th century. Identical compositions are often found in both keyboard collections and ensemble music collections coming from the ambience of nobles and burghers, designated for different line-ups. The goal of the CD-recording is to point to this aspect of life of the pieces in different line-ups following the period practice. Dances and other works from the Lubeník Collection, additionally grouped into sets, can sound in harpsichord, as they are written down, but also in an arrangment for the chamber instrumental ensemble using accompanying instruments of the period dance music - violin, viola, cello, harpsichord, transverse flute, recorders.
