London Handel Players

Handel at Home

Weill Recital Hall
Handel’s chamber music is featured alongside delightful arrangements for flute and strings of favorite passages from his stage works. Handel’s publisher recognized a demand for play-at-home instrumental versions of hit tunes from the composer’s operas and oratorios, so he arranged some of the most popular music. These arrangements, as well as versions by London Handel Players’ flutist Rachel Brown, anchor this spirited look at 18th-century music making.
