Overture to Arianna
Concerti Grossi, op.6
Cantata “Crudel, tiranno amor”

Featuring Susannah Stewart, soprano. Recognized today primarily for his Water Music and Hallelujah Chorus, George Frideric Handel was one of the most versatile composers to ever live. With a combination of vocal and instrumental compositions, this concert is dedicated entirely to the works of this highly underrated baroque composer.

The role of the harpsichord in a program of this type is playing basso continuo. For a description of this practice: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Figured_bass#Basso_continuo.
