Beschreibung

The oratorio “Esther” is the first English language oratorio and also the first oratorio by Handel based on a theatre tragedy - Jean Racine’s “Esther”. For the first time Handel drew on hisknowledge gathered from stays in Germany, Italy and England. He created his own particular style of oratorio writing, which differs from the later integrative works. Many sections of this composition harken back to the previouslycomposed, “Brockes-Passion”.

The first performance took place in 1720. For the first public performance of the work in London in 1732, Handel arranged and enlarged “Esther”. The Urtext of theHalleHandel Complete Edition presents the original version from 1720.
