UK Premiere - Lidarti's Ester

St. Jude’s Church, Central Square NW11 7AH

HGO is proud to present the UK premiere of the unique oratorio ‘T’shuat Yisrael al Yedey Ester – The Salvation of Israel by Esther’ (1774). The libretto, in Hebrew, commissioned by the Sephardi congregation of Amsterdam from Rabbi Jacob Saraval in the 1750s, was set a few years later with the assistance of Saraval by the Italian composer Cristiano Lidarti, but his setting was lost until the manuscript turned up in Cambridge University Library in the 1990s.

Lidarti’s galant style is clearly influenced by both Haydn and the tradition of Pergolesi. Scored for choir and baroque orchestra of strings, horns and oboes, with solo roles for Esther, Haman, Mordecai and Ahasuerus, this performance, sung in the original Hebrew, will be the first ever in England. The chamber choir Londinium and the HGO Baroque Orchestra will be conducted by Andrew Griffiths, with the solo roles taken by singers from HGO’s recent acclaimed productions –

Esther  – Eleanor Ross (soprano)
Mordecai – Alexander Aldren (tenor)
Ahasuerus – Alexander Gebhard (tenor)
Haman – Peter Edge (baritone)

The performance, at the wonderful Lutyens Church of St. Jude’s in Hampstead Garden Suburb, with its superb acoustics, will commence at 17.30 and end at about 19.00.
