Description

The music of George Frideric Handel was intended for the enjoyment of his secular audiences and royalty, as well as for the church with his much-loved orchestral works, oratorios and operas. Two lecture-performances with Dr Barry Smith at the UCT Summer School showcase Handel’s all-embracing and genial genius in a cheerful concerto grosso and catchy keyboard music. Choral highlights are presented by VOX Cape Town, accompanied by a small orchestra replete with trumpets and drums, on the Tuesday evening.
