IRISH BAROQUE ORCHESTRA – HANDEL AT THE CATHEDRAL

Christ Church Cathedral, Friday 17th May 2019 & doors open at 7.00 p.m.

South African-born, London-based Kristian Bezuidenhout is generally ranked among the leading period-instrument keyboard players of his generation and is perhaps best known for his fortepiano interpretations of music by Mozart.

The Irish Baroque Orchestra is like no other group performing in Ireland today. Driven by the belief that the best things in life stand the test of time, the orchestra allows Irish audiences to experience the beauty of baroque music as it was intended to be heard.

The Irish Baroque Orchestra returns to the Waterford Symphony Club series in the company of world renowned guest director Kristian Bezuidenhout, as he turns his attention towards Bach and the D minor harpsichord concerto with its intricate invention. Bezuidenhout constructs his own invention in the form of a hybrid suite, pairing Telemann’s Tafelmusik and Paris Quartets, before mythological caricatures of Neptune, water nymphs and all the tempestuous moods of the sea are depicted in his famous Wassermusik.
