Summers@Severance: Handel's Water Music

Mark Kosower, cello


All of the fun of a Super Bowl party but without Left Shark.  In 1717, King George was not doing well in the polls, and his political advisors suggested that he do something big to get the people behind him. So they came up with the idea of a summer boating party on the Thames, and Handel, the most popular composer in London, was commissioned to write music for this giant public concert. The Water Music is memorably tuneful and utilizes fashionable dances of the day.
