Event

Stiftungskonzert I

Handel, Almira and the Gänsemarkt Opera in Hamburg

Even the opening of the concert is unique with the premiere performance of the original score of the Overture to Almira, which has survived only in lute tablature. This will be followed by the Abchordis Ensemble taking us on an exciting expedition through the musical sources of inspiration for this opera that clearly influenced George Frideric Handel - landing on Telemann's new version of the Almira aria "Quillt, ihr überhäuften Zähren", among other works. In 2015, the ensemble won the "Göttinger Reihe Historischer Musik" competition, was part of the "eeemerging" scholarship programme, and has been at home on festival stages throughout Europe ever since. Soprano Felicitas Wrede will assume the role of the compelling tour guide.

The programme was compiled by the renowned musicologist Prof. Dr. Hans Joachim Marx.

Together for Pleasure!
