Händel goes wild
Christina Pluhar & L'Arpeggiata
Werke von Georg Friedrich Händel
in arrangements and improvisations
Audiences cheered themselves into a frenzy
or simply fainted with excitement, prima donnas fell over each other to be the
first to sing his latest arias – in the early 18th century George Frideric
Handel was the pop star of his day. This Baroque composer came up with his
melodies by improvising on the harpsichord. In keeping with this technique,
Christina Pluhar stages her project Handel Goes Wild as one big jam session.
Baroque meets the 21st century – imaginative, jazzy and committed to the very
highest artistic standards – and not just thanks to the participation of star
countertenor Valer Sabadus.
