Mendelssohn’s pioneering reconstruction of Israel in Egypt dates from 1833 and comes with a fascinating, 19th-century orchestration, one of the main reasons for acquiring this fine new recording. King’s players conjure up a vivid, lithe soundworld on authentic instruments which is a joy to the ear. Choral and solo contributions (Roderick Williams exceptional even by his own standards) are as impressive as the recorded sound. Recommended.
