Eternal Eclipse - Music for King George I

George I was very sure of his musical tastes; he was particularly attracted to the music of George Frideric Handel and Agostino Steffani. His collection was more than a reflection of this musical taste but also a record of his lifelong friendships with both Steffani and later Handel. This concert will place one of Steffani’s larger scale cantatas alongside sonatas by his younger contemporary, Handel.
