Description

Few pieces can deliver a fresh perspective each time they are heard. Handel’s Messiah is one of those works that yields a new secret on every hearing. Composed in 1741, it reportedly was a favorite work of Beethoven for its “sublimity of language.” For modern listeners, it holds a place of reverence in the canon for its universal appeal and moments of timeless expression.
