Tomorrow in Vancouver

Throughout the history of the creative arts, young artists have acquired the skills of their trade through the imitation and transformation of preexisting models. During Handel’s early years in Italy, he made a point of learning from, copying from, and most importantly, expanding on the musical material with which he came in contact. For this program, two of Europe’s most accomplished young Baroque vocalists, Terry Wey and Jenny Hogstrom, perform virtuosic cantatas and fiery love duets by Handel from his early Italian period as well as a duet by one of his mentors, Agostino Steffani.
