CONCERT DETAILS

“There is something about [Nicholas McGegan’s] abundant zeal and affection that seems to enhance his work in the Baroque and Classical repertory he favors,” says The New York Times of this program’s guest conductor. McGegan, a renowned expert in 18th-century music, leads a sampling of the period’s finest works, culminating in the Music for the Royal Fireworks that Handel composed for King George II on the momentous occasion of a peace treaty being signed. (It is said that foul weather caused Handel’s brilliant music to outshine the spectacle of lights.)
