14 April 2009 witnessed the 250th anniversary of George Frideric Handel's death. On this unique occasion two of the world's leading Baroque orchestras, members of four distinguished choruses, three accomplished Handel interpreters as soloists, together with conductor and Handel-Preis winner Howard Arman paid homage to the composer by playing the repertoire of the historic first commemoration concert that took place in London's Westminster Abbey in 1784. This outstanding British-German performance in Halle's Marktkirche, where George Frideric was baptized, represents the media highlight of Handel Year 2009.
