Susanna Fairbairn soprano Rebecca Afonwy Jones soprano Jess Dandy alto Stuart Jackson tenor James Newby bass Three Choirs Festival Chorus Philharmonia Orchestra Geraint Bowen conductor Handel (arr. Mendelssohn) Israel in Egypt (UK concert premiere) 83’ One of Handel’s most dramatic and exciting oratorios, Israel in Egypt tells the biblical story of the Israelites’ slavery in Egypt and their escape across the Red Sea. The ten plagues descending on the Egyptians are astoundingly descriptive: pelting hail and the buzzing flies and locusts are vividly conjured in sound. This arrangement by Mendelssohn, created for his own large chorus, has never been heard in concert in the UK. Tickets £50, £45, £32, £25, £15 from www.3choirs.org
