Highlights of English Musical Heritage

Highlights of English Musical Heritage

For music lovers who are not necessarily musicians, the library presents a series of sessions aiming at illustrating  the heritage of English Classical Music in its most specific and beautiful forms, mainly vocal music. Each session will focus on a composer, with a short presentation of the work and the composer, followed by the listening of selected pieces through  selected  videos, often with different interpretations. The point is to share comments and criticism with the group members.

This session will focus on Handel’s first big success in London, the opera “RINALDO”.

These sesssions are free and open to the public. No need to reserve, just come and enjoy!
