YCMS 067 The World of Handel

George Frederick Handel (1685-1752) was one of the world’s most prolific composers. Born in Halle, in Germany, he began his career as a musician in Hamburg and spent time in Italy and in Hanover before settling in London. He wrote 44 operas, and 31 oratorios and odes, as well as many anthems, songs and musical pieces for the harpsichord. His orchestral music included concertos for small orchestras, organ, recorder, and horn. His Water Music and Music for the Royal Fireworks are especially delightful.
