Conductor Gergely Madaras



Israel in Egypt


Last year’s concert from Tenebrae and Academy of Ancient Music was one of the most successful and oversubscribed events we have ever mounted, so we have invited the AAM back for 2019, this time with the acclaimed BBC singers, under the baton of the superb young Hungarian conductor Gergely Madaras. Handel’s oratorio Israel in Egypt best conveys the composer’s gift for theatrical effect, dramatic grandeur and poignant contemplation. It charts the biblical Lamentation of the Israelites, their subsequent escape from captivity through the parted Red Sea and the triumphant celebration of their newfound freedom. The range and variety of Handel’s writing in Israel in Egypt is unprecedented and staggering.

As with last year, we expect to be heavily oversubscribed for this concert so please send your forms in ASAP. Restrictions apply on the number of tickets that can be requested during the priority periods. Please see details on the Patrons, Friends, & Sponsors page.
