Israel in Egypt
The BBC Singers are joined by Hungarian conductor Gergely Madaras and the Academy of Ancient Music in a performance of Handel’s epic oratorio, Israel in Egypt.
Packed with plagues of frogs, flies, lice, locusts and hailstones, Israel in Egypt is one of Handel’s most dramatic works. Gergely Madaras makes a welcome return with the BBC Singers, who join forces with the Academy of Ancient Music for a thrilling evening of Old Testament retribution and triumph, with soloists from the BBC Singers.
Recorded last week at Milton Court, Barbican, and introduced by Martin Handley.
