Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Israel in Egypt, oratorio, HWV 54
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Georg Friedrich Handel's great choral oratorio, "Israel in Egypt" is the most valuable gift the composer ever gave to choral music. The chorus functions as protagonist in this powerful work, which tells the Old Testament story of Exodus with telling dramatic intensity. Two multiple prize-winning, major ensemble, Concerto Koln, the well known period instrument ensemble and the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks, joined forces for the first time in November of 2008. This live recording features the original three-part version from 1739.

"This is a notoriously tricky score to bring off. Part I can become monotonous in unsympathetic hands, and finding a balance between the strength and power required by the great assemblage of magnificent choral numbers and the demands of period integrity is hard to achieve...The Concerto Koln is a tried and true period-instrument band. While only Joshua and Van Rensburg have name identity, all the soloists are admirable, though their functions are minimal in this work...Generally this is one of the most effective and pleasing performances of Part I that I can recall, and the whole production bespeaks commitment." - American Record Guide
