The grandeur and majesty of the Baroque era will be celebrated by cultural organisations throughout the UK in 2009, inspired by the anniversaries of two great Baroque composers. 2009 marks the 250th anniversary of George Frideric Handel’s death (1685-1759) and the 350th anniversary of Henry Purcell’s birth (1659-1695). The opulent Baroque style will be captured by Baroque ’09, a year of Baroque music and culture with an exciting programme of concerts, operas and exhibitions. BBC Radio 3 and the BBC Proms will feature Baroque music throughout the year.
