UNIVERSITY PHILHARMONIA

BACH Orchestral Suite No.3 in D, BWV1068 HANDEL Concerto Grosso in B flat, Op. 3 No. 2 HANDEL Israel in Egypt (Part I) Handel’s great oratorio tells the familiar story of the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt, and Part One, with dazzlingly graphic and evocative music, portrays the sufferings of the Israelites and the plagues visited upon the Egyptians. The first half of the concert counterpoints the festive qualities of Bach’s Suite No. 3 (with its thrilling writing for trumpets and timpani) and the more intimate, reflective qualities of the Handel Concerto Grosso. Please note this concert is now taking place in the Djanogly Recital Hall.
