Time Out says
Christian Curnyn conducts Handel's Messiah.
It’s the time of year for Handel’s perennially-popular choral classic, Messiah, and who better to conduct it than Christian Curnyn, one of the UK’s foremost interpreters of baroque and classical repertoire?
Beginning with the sublime strains of ‘Comfort Ye’ and culminating in the majesty of its concluding ‘Amen’, the work simply cannot fail to enrich, inspire and entertain. A stellar cast of soloists and the Hallé Choir are sure to be in fine voice for the occasion, so why not make it a very special part of your lead up to Christmas?
