Mr Handel and The English Concert

In the video below we discuss a direction towards Opera, particularly those of Handel, with interviews from Artistic Director Harry Bicket and soloists during their latest production.

"Like a globe-travelling relative who returns bearing marvellous gifts, The English Concert continues to appear at Carnegie Hall bearing one gorgeous Handel opera after another. The English Concert will return in April of next year, with [Ariodante]. After Sunday, it seems cruelly unfair to have to wait that long. " - New York Classical Review

"Under Harry Bicket's lively direction, each instrumentalist played as though personally responsible for the entire show, wringing out every ounce of drama: at one point during Act II, the cellos unleashed such a torrent of fury that they threatened to upstage the cast." - Financial Times
