DCINY Presents: Messiah...Refreshed!

Handel: Messiah


DCINY's annual presentation of Thomas Beecham/Eugene Goossens' 1959 Re-Orchestration for Full Symphony Orchestra


“It has become an annual tradition for the Distinguished Concerts International organization


to present a version of Handel's “Messiah” far outside the historically informed mainstream.


As usual Jonathan Griffith will conduct a huge group of players and singers in the delicious


symphony-orchestra arrangement that Eugene Goossens prepared for Thomas Beecham's


1959 RCA recording of the work, which has about the same relationship to other “Messiahs”


that chocolate layer cake has to a Ritz Cracker.” - The New York Times
