The Magic of Handel
2020-21 Season • 45m
Considered one of the greatest of the Baroque composers, Handel is celebrated in this concert with an impassioned performance featuring four of H+H’s principal musicians. H+H feels a deep connection with its eponymous composer, and today’s concert captures his romance and genius. You’re invited to feast your senses with this intimate view of our virtuosic artists as they weave the melodies.
