Irish Baroque Orchestra are delighted to welcome world renowned guest director, Kristian Bezuidenhout, to Ireland once more for his first performance with the orchestra.
One the world’s finest harpsichord virtuosos, Bezuidenhout turns his soloistic talents towards Bach’s D minor harpsichord concerto which is beautifully complemented by Telemann’s Tafelmusik while mythological creatures of Neptune and water nymphs are all depicted in his famous Wassermusik.
We explore three very special venues during this project. The beautiful sacred surrounds of Christ Church Waterford. It is a great privilege to perform in The Picture Gallery at Kilkenny Castle, to mark 50 years of management by the OPW, and it is always such a pleasure for us to perform in the spectacular Castletown House.
The combination of Kristian’s charismatic and virtuosic playing, sublime music in extraordinary venues, this project is not to be missed!
