Handel & Bach

Synopsis

Handel’s inventive concerto unites the unlikely combination of string orchestra and pipe organ in music that is astoundingly fresh and light on its feet. Muffat’s harmonic tribute to Italy adds German precision and French elegance to establish a new tradition of ensemble writing. With music from Bach’s deathbed and a forward-looking concerto from his most accomplished son, the torch passes to a new generation.
