George Frideric Handel, one of the great composers of the Baroque period, composed “Israel in Egypt” in 1738. After his “Messiah,” it is considered his most popular oratorio. With his extraordinary penchant for storytelling, Handel unfolds “Israel in Egypt” as the heroic, biblical story of Moses leading the Israelites as they escaped from captivity in Egypt. With dramatic artistry, Handel depicts the ten plagues visited upon the Egyptians and the crossing of the Red Sea. Notable for its use of its thunderous choruses, the work also includes several arias, performed in these concerts by PFC singer soloists.
