The season 2020—21 will be inaugurated by one of the most famous works in the history of music, Handel’s Messiah, and this “messianic” spirit pervades the dramaturgy of the whole concert series. The unconventional programme of the Advent concert will recreate the atmosphere of Italian Baroque Christmas and we shall celebrate the arrival of the New Year with Mozart’s Coronation Mass.

The first Czech complete recording of Händel's Messiah has been launched

coverHallelujah! Collegium 1704 has published the first Czech complete recording of Messiah - a famous masterpiece composed by G. F. Händel. The very latest CD has been introduced by the ensemble on 13 March 2019 in Rudolfinum on the occasion of Händel's another oratorio - Israel in Egypt performance. 

Händel's Messiah is unquestionably one of the most famous works of the worldwide oratorio literature, and over the centuries it has become a part of England’s cultural identity. It is not surprising that tens of Messiah recordings exist. A noteworthy fact is an absence of the Czech interpretative tradition of Handel's Messiah. On the occasion of the fourth performance of Messiah within the season 2017/2018 of Collegium 1704 held in the Rudolfinum in Prague (27 March & 3 April 2018), the ensemble decided to provide the very first complete CD live recording of this composition.
