Handel: Alessandro - overture

Greek ensemble Armonia Atenea and conductor George Petrou perform Handel's Alessandro (overture), live from Cadogan Hall in London.

The first Greek orchestra ever to appear at the Proms, Armonia Atenea is joined by its Artistic Director George Petrou to present a programme with an appropriately classical flavour.

Greek myths form the thread through a Baroque labyrinth of arias and overtures - furies rage, sons defy their fathers and heroines bewail their fate.
