Adelaide Baroque | Handel’s London
21 August 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm AEST
German composer George Frideric Handel lived in London for most of his career. Aged only 27 when he moved to England, Handel would be at the centre of musical activity in London for the next 40 years. Handel’s London features roles created by the great English Tenor John Beard in three of Handel’s most popular Oratorios and sumptuous duets for Tenor and Baritone.
This concert also includes one of Handel’s most beloved masterworks, the first suite of the Water Music, performed in 1717 as a fitting response to King George’s request for a concert on the River Thames.
