  • G.F. Handel: The Oratorio Judas Maccabaeus

    Conductor: Yuval Benozer
    The Israeli Vocal Ensemble
    The Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra
    Soloists: Daniela Skorka, soprano; Alon Harari, Alt; Ron Silberstein, tenor; Oded Reich, bass; Narrator: Alon Neuman

    Duration of the concert: 01:27:50 hours

    Lived recorded at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, 2/1/20

    The Oratorio Judas Maccabaeus is made up of three parts:

    The first part opens with a description of the death of Matityahu and the mourning of the people for the death of its leader (a typical and beautiful eulogy choir section). His son Shimon encourages the faith of the people and calls on them to take up arms, while his brother Judah accepts the role of leader and encourages his people with reflections on freedom and victory in the power of faith in God. 

    In the second part of the oratorio, the Israelites win. But when they learn that the Seleucid commander Gorgias is preparing his army for revenge, the rejoicing of the people turns into despair (Ah! Wretched Israel) and Judah again inspires a spirit of warfare and heroism in the people and demands the destruction of the altars of infidels and resistance to the false religion (with the most famous aria Sound an Alarm).


    In the third and final part, the Jews win and are received in a solemn parade, and the people celebrate the arrival of the long-awaited peace in one of the beautiful duets Oh Lovely Peace.
