EXP 20-12 E: George Frideric Handel, Episode 5, 12/27/2019

From The WFMT Radio Network | Part of the Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin series | 58:58

Exploring_music_logo_small GF Handel, born the same year as JS Bach and Giuseppe Domenico Scarlatti — 1685 — had a distinct sound that married his German roots with his new country of England. We’ll have a weeklong look at the life and music of England’s most celebrated German composer. Since the Baroque era, many of his works are played every year since their first hearing, which is now almost 300 hundred years ago. And a good hour into the Messiah we all stand for the Hallelujah chorus just as George II did.
