Georg Frederic Händel: Oratorios. Overview
Score and interpretation. Types of Choral-settings
Händel wrote about 25 oratorios, most of them sacred with themes from the bible. Only a few of these compositions belong to the common concert-repertoire. But there is a lot of fascinating music in rather unknown oratorios, both for choirs and soloists.
In this workshop we will have a look into the scores
- enquiring the key for interpretation approach
- on the different types of choral-settings.
Period instruments? How to sing in baroque manner?
