43. A GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL

Friday 29th July, 7:00 pm

Event Navigation

Philharmonia Baroque’s commitment to both old and new music is reflected in a striking programme built around connections and contrasts. Leading countertenor Tim Mead explores Handel’s genius for characterisation in four vividly contrasted arias, while the orchestra show the stunning expressive range of his concertos. At the centre of the programme, Tarik O’Regan and Errollyn Wallen continue the theme of dualities in a co-composed work exploring the myth of creation.
