Music Appreciation: George Frideric Handel and the Shaping of English Music

Ref: C3739735

The composer of Messiah and Water Music seems hardly to need introduction, and yet Handel’s reputation all too often rests on a small number of works. This study day situates such pieces within the context of Handel’s wider output and explores his singular contribution not only to barque music but to English music as a whole. We will also consider Handel’s legacy in England and beyond, including Beethoven’s study of the baroque master in his final years.
