Composers: Georg Philipp Telemann, Johann Heinrich Rolle
The story of the liberation of the Israelites from their enslavement in Egypt, as told in the Book of Exodus, has often been set to music. The works by Telemann and Rolle recorded here are based on this subject and partly even on the same libretto. And yet these two composers, separated by only one generation, handle this topic in remarkably different ways.
Following the release of C. P. E. Bach’s Die Auferstehung und Himmelfahrt Jesu (PAS1115) and Niccolo Jommelli’s Requiem and Miserere (PAS1076), Il Gardellino once again presents a work that has been virtually unknown to a wide audience with this premiere recording of Rolle’s oratorio.
Under the direction of Peter Van Heyghen, the vocal ensemble and the baroque orchestra Il Gardellino bring these oratorios to new splendour. The solo parts feature outstanding singers such as Miriam Feuersinger, Elvira Bill, Daniel Johannsen, André Morsch and Sebastian Myrus.
