About this Programme
What happens when the best musical minds are given free reign to depict royalty as well as the life of villagers and mariners? Find out in this grand Baroque orchestral programme in which the splendour of four hunting horns provide the platform for music of royal grandeur as well as well as the humorous characterization of animals and raucous village life. Orchestral highlights from operas by Handel and Rameau are featured alongside two of Telemann’s biggest concert pieces – his “Water Music” and “Alster Overture”, both of which provide musical descriptions of the ebb and flow of life along the rivers of Hamburg. Come to a concert of kings and princes, nymphs, merry mariners, frogs, and crows, all directed by the exciting British harpsichord virtuoso Steven Devine.
