A Celebration of Saint Columba
with Water Music by George Frideric Handel
Handel’s Water Music was written in response to a request by King George I for a concert on the River Thames. In a city with an ancient maritime history, it’s the perfect choice to open the residency of Le Foyer des Artistes at St Columb’s Hall, described by many as lavishly baroque. This debut concert features some of the world’s most outstanding musicians, from across the world, playing on original period instruments led by internationally-renowned baroque violinist, Bojan Čičić.
