Year after year, Martin Haselböck and his Wiener Akademie delight the OsterKlang audience with interesting interpretations of baroque works. In 2010, George Frideric Handel’s first oratorio La Resurrezione (The Resurrection) is on the programme. The rich musical expression of this early work by the 23-year-old composer about the resurrection of Jesus Christ is evocative of opera. It does not focus on Christ himself but on the battle for his soul waged by heaven and hell and on the grief and joy felt by his followers.
