Recital @ Yale Center for British Art

Nathaniel Mander - Harpsichord, Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti

In October 2017, the Yale Center for British Art, Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art (PMC), Historic Royal Palaces (HRP), and Hendrix Handel in London (HHL) co-hosted a scholarly workshop entitled Black Music: its Circulation and Impact in Eighteenth-Century London. The program was produced in association with Enlightened Princesses: Caroline, Augusta, Charlotte, and the Shaping of the Modern World, an exhibition that had been co-organized by the Center and HRP, and which then was on display at Kensington Palace. Moderated by Michael Veal (Professor of African Music, African American Studies, and American Studies at Yale) and attended by scholars from around the world, the workshop opened with a series of concerts and performances held throughout HHL, which set the stage for a rich and productive exchange the following day at the PMC. Thanks to the generosity of Laura and James Duncan, Yale BA 1975, Friends of the Center who underwrote the original workshop, this program will be reconstituted for a New Haven audience.

A Celebration of Handel's Life

A Celebration of Handel's Life for his 333rd Birthday.

Nathaniel Mander - Harpsichord

Heather Tomola - Harpsichord

Charlotte La Thrope - Soprano

Held in high regard and royal favour, Handel spent nearly 50 years of his life in London, where, according to contemporary historian Charles Burney, his compositions were considered “the models of perfection”

Innovative harpsichord four-hands duo Heather Tomala and Nathaniel Mander will be joined by soprano Charlotte La Thrope for a celebratory concert on the eve of the great composer's birthday. The rare combination of two players at one harpsichord brings a new world of colour and texture to several much-loved Handel classics, including arias from Solomon and Messiah and excerpts from the Water Music.

Music and Art: A sense of pride and joy

Royal Academy of Music, Piano Gallery

Daniel-Ben Pienaar, Curzon Lecturer in Performance Studies
Janet Snowman, Bicentenary Research Fellow
Nathaniel Mander, harpsichord

The first in a new termly event series on the relationship between music and visual art, featuring pieces from the Academy Museum’s collections. When the Mozart family visited London in 1765, adverts described Wolfgang and his sister Nannerl as ‘prodigies of Nature’. This event will consider artistic responses to the idea of musical genius by exploring images of British infant pianists, including portraits hanging in the Duke’s Hall. Covering a span from 1770 to 1840, themes will include the relationship between the family and the artist, the use of imagery in concert promotion and the quest for royal patronage. The event will also provide a rare opportunity to hear works composed by or associated with these young children.
