Handel – Alexander’s Feast

18 June @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£16 – £18

As the finale to this year’s Pinner Music Festival, the Festival Choir and Orchestra – with visiting soloists – perform Handel’s dramatic ode Alexander’s Feast, with text from John Dryden’s poem of the same name, written to celebrate Saint Cecilia’s Day.

The work describes a feast held by Alexander the Great and his lover, Thaïs, in the Persian city of Persepolis, following Alexander’s victory in battle over Darius III. During the feast, Timotheus, a musician, sings and plays his lyre, arousing various moods in Alexander – until he is finally incited to burn down the city in revenge for the Greek soldiers killed during the wars with the Persians. The piece ends with a glorious chorus extolling the virtues of Saint Cecilia, the patron saint of Music, and invoking the ode’s alternative title The Power of Music. Handel’s score for soprano, tenor and bass soloists, choir and orchestra is a triumph of variety, calling on a wide range of dramatic moods as Alexander’s emotions are skilfully manipulated by poetry and music.
