Tragic Heroines

This outstanding quartet return with a programme of music from the late 17th and 18th centuries. Tonight's concert looks at the portrayal of the tragic heroine, exploring how Handel and his contemporaries so successfully conveyed the joys and also tragic fates of women including a look at the fates of Semele, Galatea and  Armida, amongst others. Soprano Kate Semmens is joined by Steven Devine (harpsichord), Matthew Truscott (violin) and Rebecca Truscott (cello).
