About this Event

A Virtual Tour of Handel in 18th Century London

Your guide is Adam Scott-Goulding

Handel's London

What does English history sound like?

Well the last 300 years has sounded like the music of George Frideric Handel - the composer who has soundtracked every coronation since that of King George II in 1727.

We'll look at 18th Century London, consider Handel's rivals and look at the contemporaneous European music scene. The drama of the divas Bordoni and Cuzzoni will certainly add a few fireworks... we'll chart the rise and fall of his opera company, take a trip to Chelsea on the river and visit his famous Brook Street residence.

Join me to celebrate the life and work of the greatest Englishman ever born in Germany.

Praise for Adam's online guiding events since March 2020…
