Rameau Ouverture, Airs pour les Athletes, Bruit de Guerre, Gravement, Funeral Lament Tristes apprêts, pâles flambeaux and Menuet from Castor et Pollux Rameau Sommeil from Dardanus Rameau Règne avec moi, Bacchus from Anacréon Rameau Tambourins 1 & 2 from Dardanus Rameau Je vole, amour from Les Paladins Rameau Chaconne from Dardanus Handel Concerto Grosso in G minor Op. 6 No. 6 Handel Che sento o Dio and Se Pieta from Giulio Cesare Handel March from Scipione Handel Scoglio d’immota fronte from Scipione Handel Music for the Royal Fireworks William Christie conductor Sandrine Piau soprano

While George Frideric Handel -England’s favourite adopted composer- seems to have attracted a number of less than complimentary comments from fellow composers (Berlioz calling him ‘a barrel of pork and beer’), he’s never been received by anything less than acclaim here in London, with his Music for the Royal Fireworks remaining a favourite to this day.  The rest of the programme features orchestral overtures and arias from French composer and Gamechanger, Jean-Philippe Rameau.
