"Nominated for a 2013 Grammy Award" -- George Frideric Handel - Israel in Egypt, HWV 54 Orchestra and Choir of Trinity Wall Street - Julian Wachner, Conductor Handel’s grand choral oratorio experiment, was a failure when first presented in London in 1739, yet it may well be the greatest work Handel ever composed. In 1756 the composer literally re-thought the work, substituting an entirely new first part. This recording presents both versions: Handel’s 1756 revision and the original part 1 from 1739. Julian Wachner makes his debut with the famous choir and baroque orchestra of Trinity Wall Street, in New York. 3 CD set.
