When did you start playing the cello?

I started when I was eight years old, although I think I tried (unsuccessfully) to play a full-size cello that was almost twice my size when I was much younger than that.

A Tafelmusik Milestone: Handel's Saul

Handel's Saul

It is with a sense of great anticipation and excitement that we present Handel's epic oratorio Saul later this season. Over the years Tafelmusik has made the artistic commitment to explore Handel's great oratorios. We've shared the glorious music of Solomon, Deborah, Israel in Egypt, Hercules, and of course Messiah with our "Tafel-audience". And now we fulfill a personal dream of mine to present his most lavish oratorio, Saul.
