SAH: Handel, Violin Trio Sonata
Join us from the comfort of your home as we launch our Fall 2020 “Season At Home” series!
Handel famously borrowed music from himself and from other composers. On today’s program, you’ll hear the original trio sonata which Handel arranged as the opening sinfonia for his oratorio Saul. You’ll love this first version with wonderful earworms with the classic Handelian flare. You can download our eProgram by clicking on the icon below.
