Musica della sera...an all-Handel show, and with no puns!

The latest Musica della sera show is now up on the Internet to listen to on demand; see below for locating the link. This program will be available on demand until Thursday, February 26, 2009

Devoted to the music of George Frideric Händel (1685-1759), it includes violin sonatas, a harpsichord suite, concerti grossi, an organ concerto, and the Dixit Dominus (1707), a youthful choral work that shows off Handel's dazzling genius and mastery of musical forms.

You can see exactly what was played and who performed it by referring to the playlist (originally broadcast 2/19/2009).

George Frideric Handel, by Mercier, ca. 1720
