We are pleased to welcome back La Nuova Musica to the Festival – their performances always sell out. This year rising stars Louise Alder ('the brightest lyric soprano of the younger generation' – Arts Desk) and Emilie Renard ('the young mezzo sparkled' – The Observer) will delight us with a programme of delicious Handel duets. The programme will include several Duetti da Camera mainly written during Handel’s stay in Italy, alongside a rarely heard duet by his contemporary Steffani and concludes with the ‘amorous duel’ between the shepherd Daliso and Amaryllis, the object of his affection.



EMILIE RENARD mezzo-soprano

DAVID BATES director
