Tonight we have been invited to a private dinner party at Hampton Court where Handel's Water Music will be performed on period instruments by musicians of the English Concert. Having just released My Name is Handel: The Story of Water Music on Maestro Classics label, this should be quite exciting. For those of you who have not heard this new CD, Handel composed his Water Music for King George I's river cruise from London to Hampton Court, where the king had dinner and then returned to London with Handel's musical barge continuing to play.
More details tomorrow...
