To perform Händel´s Messiah with only 4 musicians can seem to be impossible, but the ensemble Odd Size has produced a version of this masterpiece and the result is somewhat revived, sprightly, playful, heartfelt and maybe also with a slight touch of madness...
Neither choir nor orchestra or conductor are in place - but the listener will get very close to the immortal music of Händel!
 
Ensemble Odd Size
Elisabeth Holmertz: song
Per Buhre: baroque violin and song
Ingrid Andersson: baroque cello and  song
Fredrik Bock: baroque guitar and song
