THE STORY OF HANDEL (1685-1759)
DID YOU KNOW. . .
Handel, like his exact contemporary Johann Sebastian Bach, was a gamous organist, but he left little music for the instrument.
Few composers worked as quickly as Handel, who sometimes completed major works in a matter of days.
Handel was a cosmopolitan figure. His music brought together elements of English, French, German, and Italian styles.
Narrated by Arthur Hannes
Special bonus: Following the story of the life and music of Handel, you will hear an additional bonus of the Water Music.
