Handel’s Water Music was premiered on a barge, immediately boosting the reputation of unpopular King George I as boisterous sounds of horns and woodwinds echoed across the water! Vivaldi’s Il Gardellino (The Goldfinch) Concerto flutters with trills, featuring MPO principal flute Ignacio de Nicolas. MPO principal Simon Emes performs the Marcello Oboe Concerto, a Venetian gem. Bach’s 3rd Orchestral Suite and its sublime Air conjures a bygone era of powdered wigs and courtly dances. Naohisa Furusawa conducts.
