Conducted by Justin Doyle.
The RIAS Kammerchor Berlin and its chief conductor Justin Doyle present Handel's Messiah, together with the Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin and an all-British quartet of outstanding soloists, consisting of Julia Doyle (soprano), Tim Mead (countertenor), Thomas Hobbs (tenor) and Roderick Williams (bass). Messiah is not only Handel's most famous work, but equally one of the cornerstones of British choral culture. Soon after the work's premiere, a tradition of mass performances full of pomp and circumstance took root, with the Hallelujah as a showstopper. This new period-instruments recording, however, aims to bring the piece back to the size and intimacy of the 1742 premiere in Dublin. The Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin has a substantial PENTATONE discography, including Handel's Concerti grossi Op. 6 and Op. 3, (released in 2019 and 2020), Telemann's opera Miriways (2019) and CANTATA with Bejun Mehta (2018). The RIAS Kammerchor Berlin, Justin Doyle, Julia Doyle, Tim Mead, Thomas Hobbs and Roderick Williams all make their PENTATONE debut.
