Nicholas McGegan

“Indeed, with a balance between all sections that was astonishingly even, and a tonal freedom that was hair-raising, this was like a familiar painting freshly cleaned. Of course, Nicholas McGegan is one of the great conductors of the baroque/classical period and his unerring sense of style and a cleverly judged increase in tension as the drama of Handel’s collaboration with Charles Jennens gathers pace, kept the packed house spellbound.

…the finest Messiah I have experienced.”
