The Choir of The King's Consort in "A Voice from Heaven". Robert King explains how Handel got a 19th-centuy makeover care of Mendelssohn. The King's Consort's new disc, Israel in Ägypten, is out on March 18, 2016! Watch our exclusive video featuring interview and recording footage below.
with his vast Handelian experience, King ensures that Handel's mighty series of choral frescoes emerge in all their brilliance and incisiveness, aided by a carefully judged choral-orchestral balanc. vividly realised snapshot of a fascinating historical moment (Gramophone Magazine). the performance makes a strong case for the piece, even if Mendelssohn's version is unlikely to make a full-scale comeback. The choir is lively, making every word clear, though some of King's conducting feels on the staid side. All the soloists make their mark.

Robert King leads the King's Consort on Mendelssohn’s version of Handel’s great oratorio Israel in Egypt, recorded in October 2015. King has painstakingly reconstructed Handel's historic 1833 Düsseldorf performance from fragments and sources across Europe and radically different it is to Handel’s 1739 original

Teuscher, Doyle, Summers, Hulett, Williams, Choir of the King’s Consort, the King’s Consorts/King (Vivat). Mendelssohn famously revived Bach’s St Matthew Passion, but he was also fascinated by the music of Handel, having studied his music on a visit to London in 1829. In 1833 he revised, reorchestrated and semi-staged (with a series of tableaux vivants) Handel’s great Old Testament oratorio Israel in Egypt. It has now been reconstructed by Robert King, and the results are fascinating – burbling clarinets supply continuo, added solo recitatives fill out the sequence of choral movements, and a totally Mendelssohnian overture now kicks off the story. Handel’s masterly depictions of frogs, plagues and.
In sum, one cannot help but appreciate Robert King’s excellent feel for the music and certainly we must envy his ability and that of his colleagues to communicate this to us. None of these works will ever rival the cornerstones of Handel’s catalog and the keystones of the 18th-century choral repertoire, but these enthusiastic and sparkling readings do make one sit bolt upright and wonder why so few have ventured here before.
