About

One of the world’s great Handel interpreters, Johannes Somary conducts a spirited, lively and profoundly revealing performance of one of Handel’s most enduring dramatic works.

While many interpreters of Messiah approach it solely as a document of religious faith, Somary restores to it much of its theatricality, bringing to the fore the music’s stylistic similarities to Handel’s other oratorios.

This specially-priced 2CD set from Vanguard Classics, remastered from the original July 1970 recording, includes full texts with incisive notes on the genesis of the work, performance history and comments by Maestro Somary on his approach to the recording of Handel’s masterwork.
