Kraemer – “one of the most authoritative Handelians”

Nicholas Kraemer - conductor

Conductor “[Nicholas] Kraemer has a special feel for Handel, making him one of the most authoritative Handelians in today’s early-music world... The stylish and trusty hand of principal guest conductor Nicholas Kraemer was evident in the symmetry of the programming as well as in the invigorating musical results… No texture was under-articulated, no dance movement under-characterized.” Chicago Classical Review of Plus Fours! Handel, Telemann, Locatelli, Vivaldi with Music of the Baroque. The concert is available to view on demand until June 12.  

“Nicholas Kraemer directing with characteristic insight & ebullience”
