Also on the program are pieces by Haydn, Medtner, and Copland.

    From Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts: “Handel’s Atalanta”

    Buy Tickets

    Composed for a royal wedding celebration, Handel’s Atalanta is a tale full of hidden love and disguise, complete with vocal fireworks. Long dormant since its 1736 premiere, Atalanta’s lively overtures, festive melodies, and favored arioso, Care selve, were revived in 1970 and are now the perfect accompaniment to a summer evening at Caramoor. We are delighted to welcome back Nicholas McGegan, whose expertise in this repertoire covers a dozen Handel oratorios and close to twenty of his operas, along with America’s leading period-instrument ensemble, for its Caramoor debut.

    “Nicholas McGegan and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra have been making their way through this body of music for decades, and each new installment seems more strikingly revelatory than the last. — Joshua Kosman, SFGate

    Nicholas McGegan, conductor by Hiroyuki Ito/Getty Images

    Nicholas McGegan is “one of the finest baroque conductors of his generation” (Independent) and “an expert in 18th-century style” (New Yorker). In his capacity as Music Director of San Francisco based Philharmonia Baroque he has established the group as the leading period band in America. In 2005 they marked their 20-year association with concerts at Carnegie Hall, their first European tour with appearances at the BBC Proms, Snape Maltings Aldeburgh, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, and the International Handel Festival, Göttingen where McGegan was Artistic Director 1991–2011. He is also the Principal Guest Conductor of Pasadena Symphony.

    Active in opera as well as the concert hall, he has been Principal Guest Conductor of Scottish Opera and Principal Conductor of Sweden’s 18th Century theatre in Drottingholm, running the annual festival there.

    He has been a pioneer in the process of exporting historically informed performance practice beyond the world of period instruments to wider conventional symphonic forces, guest-conducting with orchestras such as the Chicago, St Louis, Toronto, Montreal, and Sydney Symphony Orchestras, the New York, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestras, the Cleveland, Philadelphia, Houston, and Concertgebouw Orchestras as well as the Royal Scottish National, BBC Scottish Symphony, Scottish Chamber, Royal Northern Sinfonia, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and CBSO Baroque Ensemble, Capella Savaria at the Esterházy Festival, and the Hallé.

    Opera companies he works with include Royal Opera House Covent Garden, San Francisco, Santa Fe, and Washington. He has broken new ground in experimental dance-collaborations with Mark Morris, notably at festivals such as Edinburgh International, and Ravinia.

    His discography of over 100 releases includes the world premiere recording of Handel’s Susanna, which attracted both a Gramophone Award and Grammy nomination. Recent issues of the same composer’s works include Solomon, Samson and Acis, and Galatea (a rarity in that it unearths the little-known version adapted by Felix Mendelssohn). Among his other rediscoveries is the first performance in modern times of Handel’s masterly but mislaid Gloria. Other important releases on Philharmonia Baroque’s own label include Brahms Serenades, Berlioz Nuits D’Ete, Haydn Symphonies, Vivaldi Four Seasons, and Handel Atalanta.

    Recent highlights include conducting the Royal Northern Sinfonia at Stage@theDock, Hull in a water-themed programme for the BBC Proms, the festival’s first concert outside of London since the 1930s. Highlights of the 2017/18 season include returning to conduct the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in the world premiere of Sally Beamish’s The Judas Passion, co-commissioned by the OAE and the Philharmonia Baroque. He will also conduct the Orquestra Sinfonica do Porto at Casa da Musica, the Bergen Philharmonic, and the SWR Symphonieorchester.

    Born in England, he was educated at Cambridge and Oxford universities. His awards include an honorary professorship at Georg-August University, Göttingen, the Hallé Handel Prize, an order of merit of the state of Lower Saxony, a medal of Honour of the City of Goettingen and an official Nicholas McGegan Day, declared by the Mayor of San Francisco for two decades of distinguished work with the Philharmonia Baroque.

    He was made an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2010.

    Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale

    Under the musical direction of Nicholas McGegan, O.B.E., for 33 years, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale (PBO) is recognized as America’s leading historically informed ensemble. Using authentic instruments and stylistic conventions of the Baroque, Classical, and early Romantic periods, PBO engages audiences through performance, tours, recordings, new works, and education of the highest caliber.

    Founded 38 years ago, the ensemble is the largest of its kind in the United States. PBO’s musicians are leaders in period performance and serve on the faculties of The Juilliard School, San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Harvard, and Stanford, among others. It welcomes eminent guest artists including mezzo-sopranos Susan Graham and Anne Sofie von Otter, countertenor David Daniels, fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout, violoncellist Steven Isserlis, and maestro Richard Egarr.

    The Orchestra enjoys numerous collaborations, including a regular partnership with the Mark Morris Dance Group and Cal Performances. PBO gave the U.S. premieres of Morris’ highly-acclaimed productions of Rameau’s ballet-opera Platée and Handel’s Acis and Galatea and L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato. In 2017, PBO produced its first fully staged opera, Rameau’s Le Temple de la Gloire, in collaboration with Cal Performances, Centre de musique de Versailles, and New York Baroque Dance Company and won an Isadora Duncan Dance Award for the production a year later. PBO co-produced a critically-acclaimed modern dramatization of Handel’s Aci, Galatea, e Polifemo with National Sawdust in New York.

    As a leading steward of historical legacy, PBO also invests in the future by commissioning new works by prominent composers such as Jake Heggie and Caroline Shaw, to illuminate the influence of 17th- and 18th-century music on contemporary creation.

    Marc-André Hamelin is an accomplished and unrivaled virtuoso when it comes to the renowned works of the established repertoire for piano. He brings to his Caramoor debut one of Schumann’s greatest works for solo piano, central to the early Romantic period, and Schubert’s elegant masterpiece – the last sonata for piano he would ever write. In “Schubert’s Piano Sonata in B-flat … Hamelin’s virtuoso piano technique was fully harnessed in the service of Schubert’s unvirtuosic music, allowing soft playing to make a more penetrating impression than usual” (David Patrick Stearns, The Philadelphia Inquirer).

    “One of the most adventurous and certainly the most courageous pianists of recent times.” — International Piano Quarterly

    Overview

    Hailed as “one of the pre-eminent period-instrument ensembles” (The Independent, London), Apollo’s Fire was founded in 1992 by award-winning harpsichordist and conductor Jeannette Sorrell, who envisioned an ensemble dedicated to the baroque ideal that music should evoke the various Affekts or passions in listeners. Based in Cleveland, the ensemble has released 25 commercial CDs, tours internationally, and makes its Carnegie Hall debut in 2018. “First rate … rendered with consummate skill and artistry …” (The New York Times)

    “Apollo’s Fire under the direction of Sorrell has put Cleveland firmly on the period-performance map.” — The New Yorker
