The viable virtuose

Aula der Universität Göttingen

George Frideric Handel exemplifies the idea of the musical cosmopolitan more than almost any other composer of the 18th century: he was educated in Germany, travelled to Italy, which was also formative for him, and finally settled in London, where he composed chamber music and operas

in Italian and triumphed with oratorios in English. In light of his extensive experience, Handel was a musical cosmopolitan and polyglot who was at home in various genres and styles and combined them masterfully. The program of the multi-award-winning Spanish early music ensemble L'Apothéose, that has been causing a stir on international concert stages for some time now, guides us through the stations of Handel's life and reflects on them through his music and the music of his contemporaries.
