  • Händel Messiah
    oratorio per soli, coro e orchestra

In 1741, at fifty-six years of age, after an extraordinary opera career (as both composer and impresario) inspired by Italian melodrama, Händel embarked on a new phase connected with oratorio in the English language - a genre he himself had contributed to developing. The Messiah came into being over the course of one summer, in Dublin, where the composer had accepted an invitation to take part in a concert season. Written by Charles Jennens, the text is taken from the Bible and focuses on the epic celebration of the figure of the Messiah and of his importance for the redemption of humankind. Right from its first performance, success was constant, and the Messiah remains to this day one of the compositions most associated with Händel's name. A masterpiece of Baroque music, rich in all the stylistic artifices of the time, its performance is entrusted to the Accademia di Santa Cecilia Orchestra and Chorus led by a specialist in the genre: Dutch conductor Ton Koopman. An organist and harpsichordist, and a pupil of Gustav Leonhardt, Koopman is in his turn a pioneer in the resurgence of early music - music for which the Dutch and British Schools are in fact touchstones in terms of attention to performance practice.
