Handel: La resurrezione

An angel: Paola Valentina Molinari
Mária Magdolna: Yetzabel Arias Fernandez
Mary of Cleophas: Chiara Brunello
St John: Tilman Lichdi
Lucifer: Renato Dolcini

The world-famous Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra celebrated the 40th anniversary of its foundation in 2019. The ensemble and its founding conductor bring to the Budapest Spring Festival one of the greatest compositions of Handel’s Italian period, the Resurrection oratorio. The concert promises to be an outstanding artistic event of the Easter feast.
Dutch harpsichordist, organist, musicologist and conductor Ton Koopman has been a seminal figure of historic music. At age 25 he established the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra. The repertoire of the ensemble focused on the oeuvre of Johann Sebastian Bach. The formation was soon recognized as one of the prominent ensembles of historically informed performance practices, and was regularly featured in the leading concert halls of Europe and other continents.
In 1994 he started a particularly ambitious enterprise to record all of Bach’s sacred and secular cantatas, and then went on to release the complete works of Dieterich Buxtehude, one of Bach’s most important forerunners. Koopman’s work as a performing artist and historian of music has been acknowledged with numerous prizes, including the city of Leipzig’s Bach Award in 2006, and Lübeck’s Buxtehude Award in 2012. His recordings won the prizes of the most prestigious professional journals, and in 2017 he received the Edison Classical Award.

This concert of the Budapest Spring Festival is presented by Müpa Budapest.
