Handel: Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno
Orchestras once played Bach as well as Bruckner. Only specialised ensembles showed that note and performance signs have changed their meaning quite a bit over the centuries. So far, so theoretical: in practice, Handel's "Il Trionfo" awaits us, a sensuous oratorio that is now pleasurably performed by a vocal ensemble and the Berliner Philharmoniker. The orchestra not only gathers members from all over the world, but has also long since become stylistically polyglot - thanks to specialised conductors like Emmanuelle Haïm, who has already been filling the old marvels with new life for decades with the Berliner Philharmoniker.
