Handel's Messiah

Friday Dec 6, 2013

Central United Methodist Church
201 University NE
Albuquerque, NM

Performed by the New Mexico Philharmonic, joined by the Central United Methodist Church Choir and conducted by David Felberg.

Handel's holiday masterpiece performed by the New Mexico Philharmonic, joined by the wonderful Central United Methodist Church Choir. David Felberg conducts. Messiah, the most famous oratorio ever written, is quite unlike Handel's other ones, let alone those by most earlier and later composers. A German who initially made his fame writing Italian operas for English audiences, Handel found in the 1730s that the public wanted something new and more understandable. After composing some three dozen Italian operas, works of great musical brilliance but often dramatically inert and set to mediocre librettos, he shifted his energies to creating what are in essence sacred English operas.
