Messyah

December 8, 9, 10

In collaboration with Redwood Symphony, Eric K, director

English composer Paul Ayres has rewritten Handel’s Messiah, imagining how Handel’s original melodies might sound if the master were alive today and could set them in any musical style. As Ayres himself describes: “Sometimes there are changes to metre and rhythm, and sometimes the harmony or text has undergone a transformation. Some movements have had their essential elements distilled into a few moments’ intensity, and some musical ideas have been expanded and developed along startlingly tangential lines.”

Messyah—one might think of this as the “messy” version of the original—is a joyous, spirited celebration of the all-time classic!
