Handel in Georgian England 1711 – 1759 Peter Medhurst Monday 08 January 2018

Despite his German birth and Italian musical training, Handel remains one of the most important composers that England ever nurtured.  Peter links the world of music with the visual arts and performs live vocal and keyboard music to complement the theme of his talk.

We are very pleased to welcome Peter Medhurst back. He appears in the UK and abroad as musician and scholar, giving recitals and delivering illustrated lectures on music and the arts. He studied singing and early keyboard instruments at the Royal College of Music and at the Mozarteum in Salzburg.
