Gli Angeli Genève

How do you stay fresh and sharp? By constantly challenging yourself. Just ask Gli Angeli Genève: a benchmark in the field of Baroque music, that likes to step out of its comfort zone. This Swiss ensemble has been singing the music of Bach senior for years. With Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach they are now crossing paths with the flagbearer of Empfindsamkeit.
The performance of the oratorio Die Israeliten in der Wüste at the consecration of Hamburg's Lazarethkirche in 1769 was a kind of musical showpiece for C.P.E.: he had just been appointed musical director, succeeding his godfather Telemann. The work is not only considered his first success in Hamburg, but is also the first major German oratorio intended for performance in both church and concert hall.
