Handel’s Water Music

Baroque Grandeur

Brilliant sounds
Perfect style
Dates Thu 4 Apr, Fri 5 Apr, Sat 6 Apr, Mon 8 Apr Venue Sydney Opera House
Duration 1hr 55mins (incl. 20-min interval)

The drama and magnificence of the high baroque style comes to the stage of the Concert Hall with Handel's Water Music.

When the Sydney Symphony performs baroque music we turn to  conductors who have the 18th-century style completely under their skin. Reinhard Goebel, founder of Musica Antiqua Cologne, is one such musician.

For the past 40 years he's introduced audiences throughout the world to the splendour and excitement of baroque music played true to style. And now he comes to Sydney with a program built around the brilliant sounds of Handel's Water Music - a right royal accompaniment for a king's trip on the Thames, c.1717.

Framing the Water Music suites are some rare treasures - grand, moving and magnificent.
