Getting a Handle on Handel
La Follia performs music of George Frideric Handel.
In this concert, we follow Handel from a precocious upstart in Hamburg, to his musical awakening while in Rome, to his triumphant arrival as a celebrated master in London.
Featured are Gitanjali Mathur, soprano, Steven Brennfleck, tenor, Sarah Davol. oboe, Eric Smith, cello and gamba, and Keith Womer, organ. They are joined by a fourteen-piece Baroque orchestra led by concertmaster and 2019 Austin Critics Table award winner Stephen Redfield.
Dianne Donovan from KMFA Classical 89.5 will provide commentary during the concert.
