Produktinfo

Handel's most popular and joyous oratorio, a work of unfailing melodic invention and dramatic expressiveness, has become almost a British national institution, regularly performed by all manner of choirs and orchestras. This new recording provides the only modern re-construction of Handel's unique London performances in 1751, when he used boy treble voices not only for the choruses but for the arias as well. It is both a celebration of the British chapel choir tradition and a window onto a particular time and place in the history of Handel's own performances of his masterpiece.

Pressestimmen

M. Hengelbrock in FonoForum 03 / 07: "Bei Edward Higginbottom geht es eindeutig darum, die bestmöglichen künstlerischen und technischen Bedingungen dafür zu schaffen, dass sich Größe, Würde und Eindringlichkeit des "Messiah" fast von selbst entfalten. Bereits in der einleitenden Sinfonia ist dies zu hören, wo die Academy of Ancient Music mit einem runden, aber transparenten Klang und mit deutlichen, aber geschmeidigen Gesten sowohl für intellektuelle Klarheit als auch für emotionale Dichte sorgt. Hier wie auch in den Arien und Chören scheint alles selbstverständlich zu laufen."
