Handel http://redriverradio.org en Carnegie Hall Live: Handel's Theodora http://redriverradio.org/post/carnegie-hall-live-handels-theodora <p><strong>Airs Wednesday, March 19 at 11 a.m.</strong> Early-music specialist Harry Bicket returns to Carnegie Hall with The English Concert for the next installment in their Handel project—the rarely heard oratorio <em>Theodora</em>. Featuring some of the composer’s most glorious music, this tragic work depicts the self-sacrificial love between a Christian virgin and a Roman imperial bodyguard, sung here by vocal greats Dorothea Röschmann and David Daniels. This deeply moving oratorio serves as a timeless parable of spiritual resistance to tyranny and an indictment of persecution, topics that still resonate with audiences today.</p><p> Wed, 19 Mar 2014 16:00:00 +0000 41526 at http://redriverradio.org Carnegie Hall Live: Handel's Theodora San Francisco Symphony http://redriverradio.org/post/san-francisco-symphony-21 <p><strong>Airs Monday, March 17 at 11 a.m.</strong> On the final concert from the San Francisco Symphony this season, violinist Alexander Barantschik takes the podium to lead the orchestra in three of J.S.
