“…the award-winning Brook Street Band has established itself as one of the country’s foremost interpreters of Handel’s music.” The Brook Street Band are a returning client and it is always an absolute treat to go and see them play their music. I was also to come and document their loveHandel Festival 2019.
To document the festival through video and photography.
Create a legacy film after.
I did not know much about Handel’s music before this project, apart from what I learnt when I had worked with The Brook Street Band before. This was the best introduction I ever could have asked for! To see so much of his music, live with historically accurate music was absolutely brilliant. The concerts were accompanied with talks and further information about his life and his contemporaries.
I particularly enjoy how they made this music accessible to so many people throughout the festival. Hosting specific concerts for families so they could come with small children and telling the story of Handel and giving context to his music.
This was great fun to film and to immerse myself in this world for a couple of days. I was so happy with the final film.
