Bach vs. Handel Smackdown
WE play. YOU vote. YOU decide: WHO is GREATER?
In this concert, we settle a debate which dates back to the time of Bach and Handel: Who is the greater composer? We settle it once and for all - the all-American way: a Smackdown!
In the "Smackdown", there will be rounds. In each round, La Follia will perform comparable "hit pieces" by each composer, from solo and ensemble works, to mellow music, to bravura works for divas, to "greatest hit" pieces. At the end of each round, YOU will vote for which is better. We tally up the votes, and record the winner of that round. At the end of the concert, the composer who has won the most rounds is declared the winner. We publish the results on the Internet (which of course is the ultimate determinant of truth), and that will be that for all time!
No previous expertise or experience is required for you to vote. This is all about you and how the music of these great Masters moves you.
This is your chance to be heard on this important issue. Otherwise, you are stuck getting your opinions handed to you from CD liner notes and musicologists. That is not the American way. To paraphrase Highlander: "There can only be ONE".
