Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

Why See New York Philharmonic - Handel's Water Music?

ClassicalConcertsHoliday & Christmas Shows

So popular on its premiere (as played by 50 musicians perched atop a barge on the River Thames) that its dedicatee King George I demanded three repeat performances, Handel's jubilant and melodic Water Music has risen to become one of classical music's most popular compositions in the last 300 years. Join the NY Phil as they celebrate this regal commission in unforgettable style.

On July 17, 1717, the citizens of London took to the river in their droves, with boats and barges alongside the full riverbank to hear the first performance of Handel's brand new work, a commission for his majesty King George I. Delighting court and commoners alike, it cemented the composer's reputation as one of the country's finest (adopted) sons!
