Emmanuelle Haïm Speaks about Handel's "La Resurrezione"

The Berlin Phil posted this video interview on Facebook. When I clicked the YT video to share it, I got this message:

This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing.

So I thought twice, and quite a few more times, and I thought maybe I should just leave it alone. Then I thought, "If I am intrigued enough by this interview to go to the Digital Concert Hall and pay to see the concert, maybe some other people would be, too." (I found it most interesting when she talked about the unusual orchestrations in La Resurrezione and the very operatic tone of this oratorio. It sure made me want to go hear the program!)

I also thought, "Why post it if you don't want people to see it?" and, "I hope I don't get in trouble." Maybe they'd prefer you go directly to the DCH to see the interview. (This is why I just added the link—in two different places.) 

But in the meantime, I can name quite a few people in the blog world who would be really delighted to see this interview (fellow Haïm-heads, unite!) who may not regularly visit DCH or follow the BPO on Facebook. 

So here she is, Emmanuelle Haïm and her hair (in English, with German subtitles):  

I also thought, "I haven't posted anything for a while. I'd better remind the blogosphere that I am still here!"
