The World's Greatest Music
Katherine introduces the three undisputed giants of the Baroque era - and the music that everyone should have in their collection.
‘Another huge Handel favourite of mine is a set of pieces that were first heard in July 1717 when King George I called for a concert on the River Thames,’ says Katherine. Handel’s Water Music was performed by 50 musicians who were set up on a barge that was sailing alongside the royal party. The King was said to have enjoyed the suites so much that he made the musicians play them three times during the course of the outing.
