Admire chamber works by Handel and Telemann, arguably the two greatest chamber composers of the high Baroque, performed by the Feinstein Ensemble.
Neither composer was dependent on the patronage system of the church or the courts.
Instead they both used their business acumen to take complete control of their careers, organising the publication and performances of their own works.
The Feinstein Ensemble presents chamber masterpieces that showcase the composers’ distinct voices and demonstrate the enormous energy that they have in common.
