A feast for music lovers
In 2014 music lovers were touched once again by the wonderful series of church concerts, which have become a fixture in Niefern-Öschelbronn’s cultural calendar.

This year the programme included the rarely-heard oratorio Israel in Egypt by George Frideric Handel, composed in 1738.
In the oratorio, Handel describes the life of the enslaved Israelites in a foreign country, the punishments God meted out to their oppressors and finally the miraculous rescue. Even today, this music is a perfect example of realism, with its ability to conjure visual events in the imagination of the listener.

Renowned artists performed the solo parts and were complemented perfectly by the Kirnbach and Capella Vocalis choirs and members of the Bach Orchestra Pforzheim. As in previous years, Bellmer is glad to support this superb series.
