Event

Festival Lecture (in German)

Händel und wir? (Handel and us?) Kontinuität und Diskontinuität der Göttinger Händel-Festspiele (Continuity and Discontinuity of the Göttingen Handel Festival

The starting point of the lecture is the question of why Handel's operas and oratorios became so successful on many stages of the Weimar Republic in the 1920s. Sandberger then traces the eventful, complex, and unprecedented history of the Festival. The lecture, whose title quotes a 1923 program contribution by Oskar Hagen, explores the continuities, but also the disruptions within the 100-year history. Lastly, he ventures a look at the present and future significance of the Festival and the music of its namesake.

Together for Pleasure!
