Handel / Brockes-Passion August Wenzinger ; Regensburger Domchor (Conductor)

£25.00

Product description

Box set. Number of Discs: 3

"Handel was past 30 when he composed this German Passion to a text by his university friend Barthold Heinrich Brockes. It is therefore not an 'early' work in terms of his precocious development. It is also a great work, if not the equal of Bach's St Matthew Passion or of Handel's own most advanced efforts. It shows his style in transition. Ten years or so previously he had composed a Dixit Dominus in a strongly German manner reminiscent in some ways of Bach, and Bach was to keep composing in this idiom to the very end. Even in such an early piece Handel was already showing an interest in dramatic effects that were alien to Bach, and they are prominent in the later stages of the narrative here, particularly in the 'turbae' or crowd-choruses one of which even suggests to me an early foreshadowing of the great 'He trusted in God' from Messiah. With the increase in drama comes a perceptible change in idiom from the semi-Bachian introversion of the early numbers to a style that marks the change to Handel's new 'English' way of expressing himself."
