Music for a Royal Occasion
Curated for the occasion of the Queen’s 90th birthday, Music for a Royal Occasion pulls from some of the most sophisticated and elegant selections in the history of music, creating a sense of nobility and ceremony for the monumental event. Handel’s Water Music Suite No. 2 in D Major feels right at home here, with Maestro John Eliot Gardiner evoking a routinely terrific performance from the English Baroque Soloists. Renée Fleming contributes a heartwarming rendition of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” from Carousel, her voice soaring above tender, melodic brass lines and inspiring string gestures.
