Händel & Hendrix
B’Rock Orchestra & Dorothee Oberlinger
Since 2016, the "Handel & Hendrix in London"-Museum located in London's Mayfair district has been commemorating the neighbourhood of two musical greats who lived here some 200 years apart: Jimi Hendrix and George Frideric Handel. This year, they will also join forces at the Göttingen International Handel Festival. The American lutenist and composer Lee Santana reworked Hendrix's music and lyrics - such as the protest song "If 6 was 9" - into new compositions. Juxtaposed with these are Handel's famous organ concertos, which echo the aspect of improvisation that is also central to Hendrix's musical style. The selected arias from Handel's Messiah and Belshazzar (incidentally, recordings of both works can be found in Hendrix's record collection), conversely, address central political aspects (also) in the Woodstock era: war and peace.
