SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 11 | 6:00 P.M.
CHRIST THE KING LUTHERAN CHURCH | 2353 RICE BLVD
Seasoned veterans of the Houston Early Music Festival and accomplished Handelian perfomers, Trio Settecento, along with star virtuoso violinist Rachel Barton Pine, returns to Houston with a program featuring sonatas from the Saxon composer's earliest years in Rome to his last years in London. Prepare to be enthralled by a great musical mind! The program also includes sonatas of Handel’s contemporaries, Italian violinist-composers Arcangelo Corelli and Francesco Veracini.
As the city's only presenting organization dedicated to covering the large historical span of early music in all of its forms, Houston Early Music presents ensembles that are part of a movement that has swept the world of classical music: historically-informed performances of vocal, instrumental, and chamber music from the Middle Ages through the eighteenth century, using period instruments.
