The London Handel Players is a world class ensemble bringing together leading period-instrument specialists in the field of baroque chamber music.

From the smallest forces (duos, trios and quartets) our ensemble expands to flute/recorder with strings and harpsichord (larger-scale chamber works and concertos) to present a vast repertoire of gems from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. As well as our collaborations with renowned singers such as Dame Emma Kirkby, Daniel Taylor, Charles Daniels and Peter Harvey, the London Handel Players present ground-breaking choreographies with celebrated baroque dancers, Mary Collins and Steven Player, and innovative crossover (baroque/folk) programmes with Celtic fiddler Alasdair Fraser and his cellist duo partner Natalie Haas.

Closely associated with the London Handel Festival, we perform regularly at Handel’s church, St George’s Hanover Square and at the Handel House Museum and Wigmore Hall in addition to music societies and festivals worldwide.
