Performance on 3 - OAE - Handel, Muffat, Bach

Presented by Martin Handley. Borrowing and re-working the music of others has inspired composers throughout the centuries - no less in the Baroque era than today. In this concert, period ensemble the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment perform music by Gottlieb Muffat taken from his Componimenti Musicali re-arranged by Handel - as well as some Handel originals - and music from Pergolesi's Stabat Mater as re-worked by J.S. Bach in his Psalm 51: Tilge, Höchster, meine Sünden.
