“Sunday Night at the Opera” with host Alexa Petrenko takes a close look at Handel, whose birthday is February 23. Here’s what Alexa has to say about how the show will honour him:
“This Sunday evening we’ll celebrate the birthday of the great baroque master, George Frederic Handel, born February 23, 1685. He wrote some of the most beautiful melodies ever, for singers, and the fantastic countertenor Franco Fagioli recently released his first solo Handel album with the fantastic period instrument ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro. We’ll hear them in such beautiful repertoire, from Serse, Rinaldo, Rodelinda, Ariodante, and Il Pastor Fido.”
“Sunday Night at the Opera” airs at 9 PM on The New Classical FM.
