Travel Tip: Classical Music in England
Handel: La Resurrezione HWV47

Handel: La Resurrezione HWV47
LONDON  •  Wigmore Hall  •  Ongoing
Handel: La Resurrezione HWV47 La Resurrezione was written for performance at Easter in Rome in 1708 during the season when opera was banned in the city by papal decree. Handelís sacred oratorio offers a dramatic portrayal of the battle that took placed between God (represented by an Angel) and the Devil after Jesusís crucifixion. This is one of the composerís most colourful scores, small wonder given that the excellent orchestra at its first performances was led by the famous Italian violinist, Arcangelo Corelli.
