Although Handel’s music is well known and relatively often performed, works by his English contemporaries and successors, such as Arne, Avison, Greene and Boyce, are very rarely found on concert programmes. Thomas Arne established himself primarily as a composer of music for the theatre, and the January matinee will begin with the overture to his opera The Judgement of Paris. Charles Avison is best known today for his orchestral arrangements of the temperamental harpsichord sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti, creating brilliant concerti grossi for strings from Scarlatti’s short movements. The programme also includes a suite with solo trumpet from an occasional ode by Henry Purcell, an orchestral overture by Maurice Greene, and a sinfonia by his pupil William Boyce, who is regarded as the greatest English composer of the eighteenth century alongside Handel and Arne. Handel’s cycle of twelve Concerti Grossi Op. 6 has a rather different history than the composer’s other published collections. He wrote the compositions in September and October 1739 at his London residence and, unlike his other collections, carefully planned the design of the entire cycle. He was probably trying to approach the most famous concerti grossi of all time, those of Arcangelo Corelli, which were also published as the composer’s opus 6.
