Handel: Resurrezione

  • Battell Chapel College & Elm Streets New Haven, CT 06511

Perhaps the most dazzling portion of Handel’s output comes from the three formative years he spent in Italy while in his early twenties. These youthful pieces are marked by bold experimentation and delight in virtuosity, and chief amongst these is La resurrezione. Written at a time when opera was banned in Rome, it treats sacred themes in a mythical fashion to create a spectacular drama that rivals his greatest staged works.
