MEGARON - THE ATHENS CONCERT HALL / ATHENS

Messiah

Handel's religious work "Messiah" under the musical direction of Christian Curnyn at the Megaron - Athens Concert Hall.

If there is one work in the European sacred music repertoire that is inextricably linked with the celebration of Christmas, it is surely Handel’s Messiah. Since its premiere in 1742, the oratorio has remained Handel’s best-known work and one of the absolute pinnacles of baroque music.
The Athens State Orchestra is conducted by the British conductor, Christian Curnyn, a world-class, profoundly knowledgeable expert in early music and its inner workings.

Programme: G. F. Haendel: Messiah, oratorio HWV 56
