George Frideric Handel (1685–1759) was born in Germany, trained in Italy, settled in London in 1712, and became a British subject in 1727. His vast musical output includes 42 operas, 29 oratorios, and numerous orchestral and chamber works. He exercised a powerful influence on future composers, including Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms.

We will seek to understand Handel’s style and legacy by examining some of his best-known works, including the operas Giulio Cesare and Serse, the oratorios Israel in Egypt and Messiah, as well as the Concerti Grossi, Water Music, and Music for the Royal Fireworks.
