Emmanuelle Haïm conducts an early Handel oratorio

We have already encountered Emmanuelle Haïm several times with the Berliner Philharmoniker as an outstanding interpreter of the music of George Frideric Handel. This time, she conducts the oratorio Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno (The Triumph of Time and Truth), which the composer wrote at the age of only 22. Everything that characterizes his later oratorios is also found here: intense emotion, delicate arias, operatic ensemble scenes. The story is about a young, pleasure-seeking woman, who finally realizes how transitory all external beauty is – a perennially current theme.
