In the Wake of Handel
German by birth and with Italian musical training, Handel remains one of the most important composers that England ever nurtured. His music directly influenced his contemporaries and his larger-than-life personality had a profound effect on the literary, visual & decorative arts.
This lecture explores this using both images and music. Presented by Peter Medhurst - musician and scholar, giving recitals & lectures on music and the arts - who studied singing and early keyboard instruments at the Royal College of Music and at the Mozarteum in Salzburg.
