The Baroque … and more Concert Series comes to a close with Christopher Muscat at the helm conducting the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra. The evening is dedicated to two composers: the great Baroque Master Handel, and contemporary composer Philip Glass.
Glass wrote the Harpsichord concerto with the Baroque tradition in mind, calling for a contemporary chamber orchestra to accompany the harpsichord in order to approach the work in a modern idiom. Handel’s works herald in the shades of summer with a burst of colour, and sheer musical joie de vivre.
