Gems of baroque music spirit and virtuosity, Handel's concertos for organ and orchestra were composed to serve as intermezzos during his oratorios. Played at the time by Handel himself - he was known to be an unequaled organist, these agile, tender and poetical pieces reveal a singular color... which GaÊtan Jarry will interpret on the new "grand" positive organ built by Quentin Blumenroeder for Versailles: at last an organ that can convey Handel's music in all it's beauty! Responding to the instrumental jubilation expressed by the Marguerite Louise musicians, Handel's motets for one voice and orchestra will bring the audience the fire and freshness of his composition, in the exceptional interpretation of the soprano Chiara Skerath, a fine finale for this program full of jubilation and grace.
