Handel, The Resurrection

Les Musiciens du Louvre, Marc Minkowski

The first act of this year’s festival dedicated to highlighting sacred works from the past, this concert is entirely devoted to the oratorio from La Resurrezione, composed by a young George Frideric Handel during his time in Italy.

In the style of a bel canto opera, “Il caro Sassone” – as the Romans used to call it – blends low-key through-composed narratives with brilliant melodies that express the gamut of emotions provoked by the mystery of the Passion of the Christ.

Marc Minkowski, a conductor known for his predilection for period instruments, brings a personal, fervent vision, at the head of his orchestra, Les Musiciens du Louvre and an international team of singers specialising in Italian Baroque Music.
