London Festival of Baroque Music 2017

London, England

The theme 'Baroque at the Edge' is inspired by the anniversaries of two of the period's most important figures, Monteverdi and Telemann, who worked at opposite extremes of the era. Both could be said to have had a creative foot outside the Baroque – back in the Renaissance period in Monteverdi's case; forward into the Classical period in Telemann's.  Major Baroque masterpieces from the likes of Bach, Handel and Monteverdi feature alongside less familiar works by Telemann, Rameau and Pergolesi.   Our roster of international artists include Vox Luminis, Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, I Fagiolini, European Union Baroque Orchestra, and Early Opera Company.

Handel Festival Halle

Halle, Germany

In Halle an der Saale, you can hear Handel the whole year round, but a very special atmosphere overtakes the city during the Handel Festival in spring. This festival has taken place in Halle every year since 1952 in the venues that marked his early years, and each time, musical milestones are set by top ensembles and artists from all over the world.

In 2017, a fascinating and diverse festival programme awaits visitors once again. The Handel Festival will be officially opened at the Handel Monument on May 26, 2017, by tradition on Marktplatz. During the ensuing 17 festival days, an irresistible mixture of top-notch Baroque, Classical, jazz, electronic and world music by internationally renowned soloists, ensembles and choirs will be enthusing audiences with the theme of "Original – Counterfeit?". A total of ten ECHO Klassik award winners will be taking the stage, including Il Pomo d'Oro, the Pera Ensemble, Concerto Köln and Lautten Compagney Berlin, as well as the outstanding Vivica Genaux, Ann Hallenberg and Sonia Prina, each of whom will be giving their own gala concert. The celebrated countertenor Xavier Sabata and Spanish tenor Juan Sancho will also be enthralling audiences in gala concerts. Audiences will be able to enjoy magical puppet-theatre performances of Acis and Galatea, HWV49a, and Giustino, HWV 37, in the historic Goethe Theatre in Bad Lauchstädt. Anyone who remembers the wonderful puppet production of Rinaldo in 2011 will know that a very special theatre experience awaits visitors. Fans of historically informed performance practice can look forward to a special event in the Carl Maria von Weber Theatre in Bernburg: not only does Musica Florea perform using a historically informed approach; the choreography and costumes of the Hartig Ensemble are also based on historic models.

The 2017 Handel Festival will present five different oratorios in honour of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. The climax of these is set to be the fully staged performance of Jephtha at the Halle Opera. The musical director of this new production is Christoph Spering; the stage director is Tatjana Gürbaca. Messiah, HWV 56, probably Handel's best-known oratorio, will be performed twice: the Dublin version of 1742 can be heard in Halle Cathedral and the London version of 1743 in the Marktkirche. Also awaiting visitors is a new production of Esther based on the Halle Handel Edition, Deborah, an interfaith project by the Abrahamic world religions, and concerts spanning various musical genres, such as the different Baroque Lounge, jazz and late-night concerts, as well as the open-air events on Domplatz and in Galgenberg Gorge.
