Handel Messiah

After exactly fifty years, the Messiah can finally be heard again at the Rotterdam Philharmonic. “A performance that left a deep impression,” De Telegraaf said at the time, “although one can discuss whether the denominations were all justified.” No denominations this time: with Baroque specialist Jonathan Cohen and the best voices of the time, Handel's masterpiece comes into its own full glory to sound. Hallelujah!
