SVF favourite Timothy Travers-Brown joins our resident Baroque orchestra in an exciting programme of eighteenth-century music for countertenor and orchestra.  It includes the famous mad scene from Handel’s Orlando (1733), Italian cantatas by Handel and Vivaldi, and the first modern performance of John Stanley’s cantata The Power of Music.  There will also be a richly scored concerto by Vivaldi and Telemann’s colourful Water Music suite, evoking the Elbe near Hamburg.

‘None could dispute Tim Travers-Brown’s consummate artistry, which was quite breathtaking’ – Huddersfield Examiner.
