Guitar Workshops

From our friends:

Academy of Ancient Music, Handel’s Brockes-Passion
Good Friday 19 April, 3pm, Barbican

On the 300th anniversary of its premiere, AAM and Richard Egarr realise a long-held ambition to perform Handel’s mighty Passion-setting of rare humanity and beauty. Composed while the young Handel was at the peak of his operatic success in London, the Brockes-Passion is a sacred opera by another name, so intricate and richly painted are its emotions and events.
