Performers Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Latest release on VIVAT brings Mendelssohn's astonishing reconstruction of Handel's great oratorio Israel in Egypt. Mendelssohn's 1833 Dsseldorf performance has been painstakingly reconstructed from fragments and sources across Europe: the large and colorful orchestra, playing nineteenth-century instruments, produces vivid new sonorities, and the double choir sings magnificently.

Listeners familiar with Handel's 1739 version will find new numbers, significant changes to the order of movements, an all-German text, and many different orchestrations - for instance, Mendelssohn adds clarinets, horns and flutes to the orchestra, and the ten recitatives are accompanied by the delicious combination of two solo cellos and a contrabass.

The work starts with a thrilling, pure-Mendelssohn overture, mixing life and energy with moments of exquisitely shifting instrumental colors.

Fine solo singing from solo sopranos Lydia Teuscher and Julia Doyle, alto Hilary Summers, tenor Benjamin Hulett, and bass Roderick Williams: Robert King and The King's Consort are on top form.

Recorded in the splendid acoustic of St Jude's, Hampstead Garden Suburb, London, where TKC have made more than 65 recordings.

Extensive presentation includes 60 page booklet with authoritative liner notes in three languages by renowned Mendelssohn expert Prof Larry Todd and by Robert King, full libretto and translation, session photographs and reproductions of Mendelssohn's manuscripts.

This 2-CD set is priced at the price of one CD.

A short video recorded live at the sessions will be on YouTube and at www.vivatmusic.com in mid- February 2016.
