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.

Fortepiano and Guitar @ Holburne Museum

Join Nathaniel Mander and Sam Brown for an informal, intimate evening of music and discussion. Nathaniel and Sam will conjure up the 19th century salon with musical gems, performed on that quintessential salon instrument, the guitar, in duo with the museum's rare and beautiful Schantz piano.

They will introduce and illustrate their respective instruments, and Sam will also talk about the guitar's mystical relative, the lute.

 

"Just about every expectation was shifted... master musicians..."
Simon Jenner 

"We were treated to a recital by Sam Brown and Nathaniel Mander. This personally and musically very charming duo performed works by Sweelinck, Tomkins, Dowland, Purcell, Byrd, Farnaby and John Danyel. What a treat!"
Christopher Goodwin, review for "Lute News"

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.

Handel’s harpsichord and what does the accompanist actually do?

 

A day considering what instrumental backing brings to your musicianship, how to handle the accompanist in rehearsal and your rapport in performance, all set in Handel’s own house. The day will also include an introductory session in Feldenkrais.
