The oratorios represent one of the apices of Händel’s
professional career and they even saved the
composer when he was facing repeated crises of his
operatic enterprise. These works of his have
remained in the European repertoire and even if
Händel hadn’t written anything else, his Messiah
alone would have earned him immortality.

Geistliche Arien von Georg Friedrich Händel mit dem Bass-Bariton Adam Plachetka

Nach regelmäßigen Gastspielen, u.a. bei den Salzburger Festspielen und am Prager Nationaltheater, gehört der 1985 in Prag geborene Bass-Bariton seit 2010 zum Ensemble der Wiener Staatsoper. Unter Leitung von Marc Minkowski war er bereits in Händels "Alcina" zu erleben, mit dem Czech Baroque Ensemble präsentiert er nun ausgewählte geistliche Arien des Hallenser Komponisten.
