Canada, Quebec, Montreal – Royal Fireworks under the direction of Steven Devine – May 13, 14 and 15, 2016

Works of Handel, Telemann and Arne

Arion Baroque Orchestra welcomes British harpsichordist and conductor Steven Devine with a definite bang, for his first visit with us to Montreal, namely with the performance of Handel’s celebrated Music for the Royal Fireworks. Handel’s pyrotechnics and pomp will be balanced, and courteously quenched, by the enchanting grace notably of Telemann’s own “Water Music.”

Guest conductor: Steven Devine, haprsichord (United Kingdom)
