With the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir and Musica Vitae.
Wednesday 29 November 2017 19.00Ends approximately 22.00
Musica Vitae will guest-perform at Konserthuset Stockholm once more, this time with the world’s most beloved oratorio: Handel’s Messiah. In partnership with the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir, Scandinavian star soloists and natural horn players from Estonia, they will perform Handel’s monumental masterpiece.
Messiah was originally intended to be performed at Easter and premiered at a charity concert in Dublin on 13 April 1742. It was immediately a huge success and Handel presented it to much acclaim at London’s Foundling Hospital each year until his death in 1759.
Numerous stories from the Old and New Testaments are compiled in Messiah, each presented with Baroque means of musical expression spanning from spiritual elevation to temperamental volition. The Hallelujah Chorus is one of the most famous sections.
