Lecture Series:
Jeffrey Thomas, “Handel’s English Oratorios”
5PM
San Francisco Conservatory.
Free

American Bach Soloists Festival and Academy
Masterworks Series:
George Frideric Handel’s Esther. Rarely performed today, Handel’s Esther represents the birth of the English oratorio. Handel originally composed it as a masque for the Duke of Chandos in 1718 and returned to his score in the 1730s, when his audiences’ enthusiasm for Italian opera began to wane. This moving work is a combination of thrilling choruses and arias, accompanied by a beautiful mélange of instruments including a triple harp. Culminating in a glorious musical paean of rejoicing, Esther became one of Handel’s most popular works and was performed throughout the rest of his career. ABS Academy vocalists will be featured in roles including Mordecai, Haman, King Ahasuerus, and his Queen Esther.
