Release Note

During the first London performance King George II is said to have been so moved by the "Hallelujah" chorus, that he rose from his seat, and the rest of the audience with him. The Messiah, Handel’s best-known oratorio, is deemed to be the masterpiece of the genre and aside from his operas likely the reason why he became the most popular artistic figure in London’s contemporary music scene. Helmuth Rilling conducts Mozart’s 1789 arrangement of that "Grand Musical Entertainment." According to Rilling, it is due to the details that this arrangement is so fascinating: dynamic changes, a different segmentation of solo and chorus parts, the instrumentation modulated to the tone characteristic of Mozart’s time. "Actually", says Rilling, " this Messiah is a new work, more colourful, and very interesting!" Picture Format: 4:3 • Sound Format: PCM Stereo • Subtitles: D, F, GB, SP
