Description

Joshua on CD

Handel: Joshua / Cummings, Dennis, Pokupic, Duske, Tarver, Handel / Cummings, Laurence, Release Date: 03/10/2015, Composer: George Frideric Handel, Performer: Tobias [Baritone Vocal] Berndt, Kenneth Tarver, Renata Pokupic, Anna Dennis, Conductor: Laurence Cummings, Orchestra/Ensemble: North German Radio Chorus, Gottingen Festival Orchestra, Number of Discs: 2. Joshua is one of four so-called 'victory' oratorios Handel composed in the late 1740s, which commemorate the defeat of the 1745-46 Jacobite Rebellion. It takes as it's subject matter the biblical story of Joshua, who roused his people to a sequence of divinely aided victories. The oratorio remained a favorite with English and continental audiences until well after Handel's death. This recording, taken from live performances, features a superb cast of soloists supported by the Festspiel Orchester Göttingen, conducted from the harpsichord by Laurence Cummings.
