Handel Israel in Egypt

Handel: Israel in Egypt

Brisbane Chorale, Canticum Chamber Choir


Conducted by Graham Abbott

Brisbane City Hall

In 1738 London, Handel was becoming known for his new English-language oratorios - and what an enduring legacy he left us. The grand tales from the bible perfectly suited his operatic background and skills of dramatic musical depictions. There are few more dramatic biblical stories than that of the desperate plight of the Israelites in Egypt and their ultimate deliverance, and Handel's brilliance gives it mighty voice.

Brisbane Chorale is delighted to be collaborating with Canticum and Camerata, and look forward to working again under the renowned musical educator, conductor and Handel specialist Graham Abbott.
