G. B. Ferrandini: Il pianto di Maria

G. F. Händel: Dixit Dominus, HWV 232

The opening evening of the Winter Festival begins with three moving baroque masterpieces performed by the Slovenian Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, and directed by the Flemish musician Bart Van Reyn, who devotes particular attention to opera and symphonic and opera music, and is a sought-after Belgian conductor of his generation.
The programme will feature Bach’s cantata for choirs and Ferrandini’s solo cantata for mezzosoprano, while the concert’s highlight will be Händel’s most temperamental work for choir and soloists. Händel undoubtedly conceived this work, which is full of vocal virtuosity, structural grandeur and energy, in order to prove his capability of composing in the Italian style. Powerful interpretations will be provided by English soprano Julia Doyle, Belgian soprano Griet De Geyter and Barbara Kozelj, a successful and charismatic mezzosoprano who delights audiences from the world’s leading stages with her outstanding performances.
