Georg Friedrich Händel: Early Cantatas by Deborah Cachet & L’Achéron [BE]
Sunday the 16th February | 15.00

The five musicians in the French ensemble L’Achéron and the soprano Deborah Cachet join forces in AMUZ to play cantatas written by Händel in his youth. Händel was about twenty years old when he arrived in Italy at the invitation of one of the de Medicis. He wrote his Figlio d’alte speranze in Venice. In Rome, he met various patrons such as the cardinals Ottoboni, Pamphilj and Ruspoli, for whom he wrote a good sixty cantatas. They occupy a space between chamber music and opera, allowing him to experiment with ingenious musical figures that he would later use in his operas as well.
