Programma

Enjoy a very special evening exploring the tastes and sounds of the period that composer George Frederic Händel was in Dublin in 1741 with two events:

At 19:30
Irish chef and founder of the famous Ballymaloe Cookery School Rory OConnell gives us a taste of Ireland in the 18th century. This event is as much a treat for the tastebuds as it is for the imagination! Travel back in time with Rory, to an age when the humble potato was the staple food. In our world of overabundance, its fascinating to get an insight into simpler times, when a whole population survived on potatoes, supplemented with herring, duck and grains!

At 21:00
Ireland in the 1740s proved to be a fertile creative ground for the composer George Frederic Händel. The 56-year-old composer was invited to Dublin to give a season of subscription concerts to fundraise for the Charitable Music Society. Although there was a hive of rich musical and cultural life in Dublin, the island faced devastating hardship. His towering masterpiece, the Messiah, was premiered in Dublin in 1741. This period of his life established his links with Ireland: interest in Handels music was waning at the time in London and he would have been offered just one performance of his Messiah there, compared to a whole series in Dublin, where his music was still flourishing. In short, Handel proved to be a resounding success in Dublin, a legacy that is fascinating to revisit.

Renowned Belfast-born conductor Kenneth Montgomery, in conversation with Alexander Oliver, director Dutch National Opera Academy gives a look at Händels influence in Ireland with live music performances from mezzo-soprano, Rosanne van Sandwijk, Dutch lutenist David Mackor and the Dudok Quartet.
