CONCERT 11
SCARLATTI MEETS HANDEL MEETS BACH

A historic meeting of hearts, minds … and fingers

In 1708 Handel and Scarlatti famously engaged in a keyboard contest in Rome. Scarlatti was declared the winner on harpsichord whilst Handel took the honours on the organ. Bach never met either of his more famous contemporaries; what would the outcome have been if he too had been there? This concert endeavours to set the record straight for once and all, on instruments both new and old.
