The Handel Project
Pianist Seong-Jin Cho shares his love for Handel’s often neglected keyboard suites on his latest album, The Handel Project. Each of the suites is brilliantly full of character and life, and Cho has chosen his three favourites for his new album, saying, “For me, Handel’s music comes directly from the heart.” Brahms loved the suites too, and Cho has also recorded the latter’s spectacular Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, based on one movement from Suite No. 3.
