Le Concert D'Astrée / Emmanuelle Haïm


Le Concert d’Astrée / Emmanuelle Haïm

1h45 without interval


Johann-Sebastian Bach
Georg Friedrich Haendel
Dixit Dominus

“Value needs not wait on years”. Such could be the banner for this concert that opens with Bach’s celebrated Magnificat. His first truly mature work, celebrating the Visitation of the Virgin Mary, features dazzling music and superb choral sections. Driven by the ardour of Emmanuelle Haïm leading the Concert d’Astrée, the piece is followed by the Dixit Dominus with which the 22-year old Handel burst on to the musical scene of his time. Two inspired works, masterpieces of baroque religious music, interpreted by outstanding soloists.
