Judas Maccabaeus

Oratorio in three Acts by George Frideric Handel

„The performances I have heard of this work previously have all been rather ordinary, leading one to think it is not of the first Handelian rank, but this rendition at the Göttingen International Handel Festival swept all that away and revealed a musical masterpiece (...).“ (Sandra Bowdler, bachtrack.com, 12. Mai 2018)

The live recording from the 2018 Festival oratorio of the Göttingen International Handel Festival is available as a CD box − may the Festival season never end!
