Handel’s Water Music to be performed by Baroque 2000


Sorin Osorhean (horn), Jonas Brolin (trumpet), Ralitza Macheva (concertmaster), Michel Scheuwly (trumpet), Lubo Minkov, (bassoon), Marian van Duyker (horn) and Magrit Mutsaerts (oboe) from Baroque 2000.

Baroque 2000’s new season begins on Sunday, April 10 at the church of the Monastery Mariannhill and features excerpts from suites one and two of Handel’s celebrated Water Music.  Please note that the time is 11 am and not as on the street posters.

Handel’s great work, for strings, oboes, trumpets, horns, bassoon and strings was first performed 299 years ago by musicians on a barge on the River Thames for King George the First, who with his entourage was carried downstream alongside on his own boat.

Also on the programme are the same composer’s Concerto Grosso op 6 no 8, and  Vivaldi’s Concerto ‘per molti instrumenti’, RV 574,  a high spirited work scored for strings, oboes and horns.

Tickets are R140 and subscriptions for the eight concert season are available, offering reserved seats and queue-free entry. There is plenty of free and safe parking. Inquiries to Michel, at 082 303 5241 or email sursouth@iafrica.com
