Praised by the New York Times for their “soulful depth” and their “consummate skill and musicianship”, The London Handel Players have thrilled audiences across the world with their performances and recordings. Established in 2000, the Players appear regularly at leading venues and festivals in the UK, Europe and North America, performing baroque chamber music and concertos and collaborating with the world’s leading singers.
The ensemble has performed across North America, making their New York debut at the Frick Museum in 2012 and returning to perform at Carnegie Hall in 2014. Concerts have also included performances at Wigmore Hall, Internationale Händel-Festpiele Göttingen, Halle International Handel Festival, East Cork Early Music Festival and in Spain, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Serbia and Croatia. Committed educators at every level and holding professorships in Historical Performance at London’s Conservatoires, The London Handel Players give numerous masterclasses and workshops.
Recent tours have taken them to Northern Ireland, Spain, Turkey, Canada and the USA. In the 23-24 season they will return to Wigmore Hall with Bach Cantatas, multi-instrument concertos by Bach, Vivaldi and Telemann and a Handel-Vivaldi programme with the exciting young countertenor, Alexander Chance. Two new recordings, one of Bach Sonatas for keyboard and violin and one of Handel aria arrangements called ‘Total Eclipse’, have been released by Somm Recordings in 2023.
Their highly acclaimed discography also includes four discs of Handel chamber music; his two sets of trio sonatas Op.2 and Op.5, his complete works for solo violin and a disc entitled ‘Handel at Home’ all on the Somm label. They have recorded Geminiani’s complete Op.1 sonatas and a two-disc set of JS Bach’s flute sonatas interspersed with some flute arias from his cantatas sung by Elizabeth Cragg, Charles Daniels and Peter Harvey. Future releases include a disc of Vivaldi flute and recorder concertos.
