Reinhard Keiser

Saturday 24 November 2007 13:00-14:00 (Radio 3)

Harpsichordist and conductor Laurence Cummings explores the life and operas of Reinhard Keiser.

Keiser was a prolific composer of opera in the late 17th and early 18th centuries, but his music was often neglected in favour Handel's work, who in fact was influenced by and borrowed musical ideas from Keiser.
