Handel at the Cathedral

Friday Friday 17 May 2019
Venue: Christchurch Cathedral Waterford

One the world’s finest harpsichord virtuosos, Bezuidenhout turns his attention towards Bach and the D minor harpsichord concerto with its intricate invention. Bezuidenhout constructs his own invention in the form of a hybrid suite, pairing Telemann’s Tafelmusik and Paris Quartets, before mythological caricatures of Neptune, water nymphs and all the tempestuous moods of the sea are depicted in his famous Wassermusik.

An evening of virtuosity not to be missed!
