The least important are not forbidden to dream of great things, and even modestly to aim at them, according to the measure of their abilities.

Messiah remains to this day Georg Friedrich Händel’s most popular work and one of the most frequently performed oratorios in the world. It debuted in Dublin on 13 April 1742 and its triumphal procession continued in a series of concerts in London the following year. For Händel, it was critically important for every text to be heard in concerts he directed because (perhaps uniquely in the history of music) he only worked with actual passages taken exclusively from the Bible. The scriptural text was compiled by his friend and colleague Charles Jennens. For this recital, the audience can enjoy excerpts from Händel’s gigantic oratorio as interpreted by Dohnányi Orchestra Budafok’s regular partner, the Budapest Academic Choral Society.
