Seattle Baroque Orchestra:
Delirio Amoroso – Handel’s Italian Years
Saturday, April 26, 2014
Town Hall Seattle, 8:00 p.m.
Alexander Weimann, Guest Director, Harpsichord
Delirio Amoroso captures the glory and verve of Handel’s youth in Rome – the compositions he might have heard and the music he came up with in response. The Seattle Baroque Orchestra program features sonatas, concerti grossi, opera excerpts from Agrippina and Rodrigo, and a harpsichord solo performed by guest director Alexander Weimann. Works by Scarlatti, Albinoni, Stradella, Corelli, and the young Handel himself.
Weimann is one of the most sought-after ensemble directors, soloists, and chamber music partners of his generation. He has traveled the world as a member of the ensemble Tragicomedia; as a frequent guest of ensembles such as Les Boréades, Cantus Cölln, Freiburger Barockorchester, Tafelmusik, and the Gesualdo Consort; and as musical director of Les Voix Baroques and Le Nouvel Opéra. Weimann has led the Portland Baroque Orchestra in Handel’s Messiah, conducted the Pacific Baroque Orchestra on a tour of Canada and the USA, and performed Bach’s Harpsichord Concertos as soloist with Les Violons du Roy. Both the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra regularly invite him to play as soloist. Click here to learn more.
