Notes & Reviews:

This recording is part of a cycle of old testament oratorios by G.F. Handel and is one of the many concerts performed at Maulbronn monastery over the past years. The series combines authentically performed baroque oratorios with the optimal acoustics and atmosphere of this unique monastic church. This ideal location demands the transparency of playing and the interpretive unveiling of the rhetoric intimations of the composition, which is especially aided by the historically authentic performance on reconstructed period instruments tuned to the customary pitch of the composer's lifetime (a 415 Hz).
