Georg Frideric Handel’s central piece, The Messiah, is one of music history’s greatest Christmas themed creations. To this day, playing it is an outstanding creative and social event, helping audiences tune into the coming holidays. The composition was created in just 21 days and debuted in 1742 in a Dublin orphanage. Throughout his life, the composer only performed it for charitable purposes. The oratorium’s songbook was put together by Charles Jennens, exclusively using Biblical quotes. The first part tells the story of life before Christ and the Messiah’s birth, the second part regales the passion story, while the third part explores salvation. The well-known “Hallelujah!” refrain resounds at the end of the second half, which English music lovers consider their second anthem. The performance, led by Howard Williams, the Pecs Symphonic Orchestra’s one-time lead conductor and one of British music’s inaugurated experts, will be joined by the very best young Hungarian singers.
