Jonathan Keates

Messiah
About the event

Jonathan Keates tells the story of the composition and musical afterlife of Handel’s masterpiece: he considers the first performances and its place in Handel’s output; he looks at the oratorio itself and its relationship with spirituality in the age of the Enlightenment; and he examines why Messiah became such an essential element in the national culture of Britain.
