About the Event

Spotlight Concert: Handel’s Italian Cantatas

Join period instrument ensemble 'Les Bougies Baroques’ (led by Piotr Jordan & conducted by Ian Peter Bugeja) and singers Eliza Safjan & Thalie Knights as they shed light on some of Handel’s lesser-known works: his Italian Cantatas. Written between 1706 (Florence) & 1737 (London), Handel’s Italian Cantatas with ensemble – despite being a microcosm of his dramatic works on a larger scale – are standalone dramatic works in their own right which are replete with characteristics found within his larger & more well-known dramatic works.
