Jane Glover Hit Author With ‘Handel In London’

By  LIBBY CUDMORE

CHERRY VALLEY – Fixing up a guest house in Cherry Valley, Graham Humes was worried what his summer tenant, Jane Glover, in town to conduct “L’Incoronazione di Poppea” at the 1994 Glimmerglass Festival, might think.
“I was afraid she wouldn’t like it!” he said. “But we got a piano in there for her, and she was very happy.”
So happy, in fact, that she returned for the next five years to conduct at the festival, often having dinner with Humes or spending an evening at the Rose and Kettle. “She was a charming woman who loved Cherry Valley,” said Humes.
Glover, a renown conductor of Baroque music, has recently released her second book, “Handel in London: The Making of a Genius” with MacMillian. The book has receive a starred review from Kirkus and praise from the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal.
“I thought the book was wonderful,” said Francesca Zambello, Festival general & artistic director. “She’s a wonderful collaborator, very connected to the drama, while also having an eye to the conventions of the baroque pieces.”
