Program
Too hot to Handel – The Gospel Messiah
Sinfonia
Comfort Ye
Every Valley
And the Glory of the Lord
Thus Said the Lord
But Who May Abide?
And He Shall Purify
Behold, A Virgin Shall Conceive
O Thou That Tellest Good Tidings to Zion
For Behold Darkness shall cover the Earth
For Unto Us a Child is Born
There Were Shepherds Abiding in the Field
And Suddenly There Was an Angel
Glory to God
Too hot to Handel – The Gospel Messiah
Rejoice Greatly, O Daughter of Zion
Then Shall the Eyes of the Blind be Opened
He Shall Feed His Flock
Behold The Lamb
Surely He Hath Borne Our Griefs
All We Like Sheep
He Trusted in God That He Would Deliver Him
Behold I Tell You a Mystery
The Trumpet Shall Sound
Hallelujah!

„Händel as you have never heard him before!” – such is the slogan advertising the concert developed around Marin Alsop’s original concept. Indeed, the Messiah arranged by Bob Christianson and Gary Anderson is entirely unique. For a stronger experience, more active participation and living the story anew, the artists gave the oratorio a wholly new face. What is the reinterpreted Messiah, then? Swinging! Händel’s refreshed work reaches for jazz, gospel, R&B, soul, funk, and pop. „The melodies and the text are identical with the original. The emotions have changed – they are as in a rock concert!” – is how Marin Alsop invites listeners. NOSPR under her baton will be joined by top-tier Polish saxophonists, the Polish National Youth Choir, BBC Concert Orchestra soloists, as well Zwakele Tshabalala, a young generation tenor from South Africa, and the mezzo-soprano Vanessa Haynes – one of the most recognisable soul voices in the British Isles.

Concert duration: approximately 60 minutes

Co-financed from the funds of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland
