Introduction/abstract

Concerto Köln • Valer Sabadus

Scarlatti • Händel • Avison • Geminiani

«Incredibly dramatic, crystal clear, extremely controlled and finely lyrical» was how the Süddeutsche Zeitung described the voice of Valer Sabadus. The German countertenor has caused a sensation in opera productions and at renowned festivals in recent years. He makes his Grafenegg debut with the Concerto Köln.

Baroque joie de vivre permeates the exquisite programme and the selection of arias and instrumental works by Georg Friedrich Händel and his contemporaries promises an evening of fine delicacies presented in the best of hands.
