Sit where the musicians sit… onstage!
A musical look into 18th Century London: Bach, Geminiani and Handel, the 3 featured composers for this concert, were expatriates who settled in London for its vibrant concert life. Handel’s famous Water Music Suite was composed for King George I for a festive occasion on the banks of the River Thames. J.C. Bach, also known as the London Bach, became internationally famous, having composed his dark and dramatic G Minor Symphony and gaining the attention of Mozart. Rounding out the concert is Italian composer, Geminiani’s Concerto Grosso.
