Chiara Skerath Soprano

Ensemble Marguerite Louise
Gaétan Jarry Organ and musical conductor


Gems of baroque music spirit and virtuosity, Handel’s concertos for organ and orchestra were composed to serve as intermezzos during his oratorios. Played at the time by Handel himself – he was known to be an unequaled organist, these agile, tender and poetical pieces reveal a singular colour… which Gaétan Jarry will interpret on the new “grand” positive organ built by Quentin Blumenroeder for Versailles: at last an organ that can convey Handel’s music in all its beauty!

Responding to the instrumental jubilation expressed by the Marguerite Louise musicians, Handel’s motets for one voice and orchestra will bring the audience the fire and freshness of his composition, in the exceptional interpretation of the soprano Chiara Skerath, a fine finale for this programme full of jubilation and grace: Rejoyce!
