Händel: Messiah


On Saturday April 29th, Samuel gave the UK première of George Enescu’s Fourth Symphony, a masterpiece left partially unorchestrated at the composer’s death and later completed for performance by Romanian composer Pascal Bentoiu. Details of the concert, given in partnership with the Romanian Cultural Institute, London, as part of their ‘Bentoiu Month’ series of events can be found at the CONCERTS page and at the ICR website.

Here is a preview of our performance from Richard Whitehouse on CLASSICAL SOURCE
and more information on Pascal Bentoiu can be found at TOCCATA CLASSICS.
