Nicholas McGegan

From Upbeat, 2:00 pm on 11 December 2015

Conductor Nicholas McGegan talks about Handel's Messiah, the oldest piece of music to have been in performance continuously ever since it was written in 1743. McGegan is "an expert in 18th-century style" (The New Yorker) and brings his probing and revelatory interpretation of Handel's oratorio to his performance with the NZSO this weekend, which will be broadcast on RNZ Concert Saturday at 8pm
