“Frenemies”: Aberdeen Early Music Collective

On Thursday, 29 September, 7:30 pm, King’s College Chapel, the Aberdeen Early Music Collective kick off our 2016/17 activities with a new programme, based around composers who tangled with Händel in some fashion, whether with words, in business dealings, in musical battles, or with actual swords! There’s chamber music for varied combinations of recorders, violins, cello, and continuo, and some solo keyboard music, selected from Telemann, Marpurg, Mattheson, Porpora, and Scarlatti (Domenico, natch). And of course, just a bit of (attributed to) Händel to finish: the Gloria for soprano, 2 violins, and continuo.
