We return to Carnegie Hall for an evening of beloved works under the leadership of Bernard Labadie, one of the foremost interpreters of Baroque-era music. Handel’s playful Water Music, famously composed for King George I, remains a favorite for its combination of “festivity and finesse in perfect measure” (NPR). Charpentier’s attention-grabbing Prelude—written in the Baroque “key of glory,” D Major—remains the most popular of his several Te Deum and possibly of his entire repertoire. OSL Ensemble Member and Met Concertmaster. Benjamin Bowman, joins OSL for a collection of excerpts from Bach’s well-known Easter Oratorio and Sinfonia in D Major.
