Lucky, lucky you! Haendel is one of my favourite composers, I wish I could have been there.

La primera foto esta bien, pero la que tiene magia y me gusta mucho es la segunda, en la que los músicos salen movidos, ¡¡¡muy buena foto!!!, los colores la composición me parece estupenda, enhorabuena.

Great take on H! Handel is one of my favorites as well. I agree -- his compositions sound heavenly. Hmmm...where's my classical playlist? Time for some Handel!

Handel is one of my favourite composers, like Bach and Vivaldy. Good choice for H.

Add me to the list of those who would have enjoyed this concert. I like the setting, too, with the paintings against a gold background behind the orchestra.

Get me into a concert hall with an orchestra, and I'm happy...
