The Trials of Love

February 25 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

- £5 – £20
Two tales of love — both tragedies in their own ways — are brought together in this coupling of baroque cantatas. From a woman so lovestruck that she can only find solace in nature, as in Bella madre de’ fiori, to the tragic tale of Daphne, who tries and fails to resist Apollo’s advances and is transformed into a laurel tree, her branches watered forever by his tears. These extraordinary tales of passion and penitence are rendered by Handel and Scarlatti in music of searing intensity, their rapturous obbligato writing by turns, playful, poignant and seductive.

George Frideric Handel
Concerto grosso in D major Op. 6, No. 5, HWV 323

Alessandro Scarlatti
 Bella madre de’ fiori
