Sydney Symphony Orchestra – Handle and Telemann

Sydney Symphoney Orchestra presents Sydney Symphony Orchestra – Handle and Telemann

The Sydney Symphony Orchestra returns to Wollongong to perform the best of Baroque music.
When King George I needed entertainment for a boating party on the Thames he called the famous Handel to write music fit for a king. Handel’s procession of grand overtures and sprightly dances are everything that’s best about the Baroque, where magnificence and exuberance meet. Handel’s contemporary Telemann wrote music for an aquatic celebration in Hamburg. His suite is a pageant of watery mythological beings.

Handel provided a soundtrack for another celebration, an immensely-hyped firework display with resplendent music at London’s Green Park for an audience of 12,000. It rained, naturally, but Handel’s music sparkled – as it does to this day.

Early music expert David Stern conducts these Baroque masterpieces with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in the Wollongong Town Hall.
