Never miss another 'The English Concert' show
Handel's Radamisto: The English Concert
The inter-familial complexities of Radamisto’s colourful plot might have you scratching your head, but Handel’s music will never fail to delight in this star-studded performance of the opera by The English Concert. Handel’s expressive and moving arias follow one another in rich profusion and include the famous Ombra cara, considered by some to be the finest of all Handel’s arias and here sung by David Daniels, in the words of The New York Times ‘the most acclaimed countertenor of the day, perhaps the best ever… simply a great singer’.
Concert performance sung in Italian with English surtitles.
Europe's leading Baroque orchestra, under the direction of conductor Harry Bicket, The English Concert has an unsurpassed reputation for inspiring performances of Baroque and Classical music and ranks among the finest chamber orchestras in the world.
'Bicket unwrapped a musical surprise, too, in the shape of a concerto for four violins by the mysterious Dutch diplomat-composer Unico Willem van Wassenaer, some of whose work was for many years attributed to Pergolesi, no less. The playing, with Matthew Truscott's violin always eloquently at the forefront, was ravishingly good' (The Guardian)
'The English Concert, the acclaimed period instrument ensemble, with Harry Bicket conducting, presented an elegant, dramatically riveting concert performance at Carnegie Hall, with a splendid cast headed by the superb mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato in the title role' (New York Times)
