From the Music Director

“The piece Dixit Dominus (or “The Lord Said”) by G.F. Handel is one that always makes me happy. It’s exciting and full of energy, colours and the joy of youth. The singers of the Ensemble call it “Handel’s dance party”. I’ve added a piece by another wild composer, Antonio Vivaldi – “Lauda Jerusalem”. Between the two pieces, to relax, I’ve put in some short A Capella sections. We will be joined by two soloists with whom I am always happy to collaborate: Daniela Skorka and Alon Harari, as well as the brilliant musicians of the Barrocade Orchestra.”
