Handel Gala: Handel at his best!
We have the evidence: no one is better at turning the human soul and all its facets into sound than George Frideric Handel, Londoner by choice. In a selection of his greatest arias and orchestral works, the audience is transported through grief, anger, desperation and triumph – all attacca under a large dramatical arc of suspense. Just like real life!
15 musicians: 6 violins, 2 violas, cello, violone, 2 oboes, bassoon, harpsichord/organ and lute.
With Wiebke Lehmkuhl, contralto
Georg Friedrich Händel, “Vivi Tiranno!”
