OVERTURE
(Baroque Series)

Stately purples and gold matching the opening Overture of Handel's Water Music.  The royal party accompanying the premier of this suite would have been amazing.  I imagine being a musician on the barge, slowly making out way down the Thames, this movement representing a stately, graceful curtsy, showing respect to all the gentree attending the royal barge party, before heading into some of the livelier dance movements.
King George 1 loved the music so much, they had to play it another three times that night!

Continuing fun of my Baroque series, inspired by music and culture from that era.... .
