George Friedrich Handel (1685-1759) – Samson

Começo com minhas postagens barrocas trazendo um dos principais oratórios de Handel, Samson, e também uma dos mais trágicos, em uma interpretação inspiradíssima do “Imperador” Harnoncourt, e com um timaço de solistas, entre eles, Anthony Rolfe Johnson, Roberta Alexander, Maria Angela Blasi, entre outros.

Sabemos que Handel compôs muitos oratórios, e prentendo postar alguns que tenho.

O libretto da obra pode ser encontrado aqui.

Maiores informações sobre a obra, podem ser encontradas aqui .
