The Amazing
George Frideric Handel

Handel was born in Halle in 1685 and died in London in 1759. He was a German composer and organist.

Handel’s career became focused after his father’s death. His first Opera, Almira, was produced in 1705. During the next few years, Handel became familiar with and mastered Italian style in opera. He also met many influential people including Alessandro Scarlatti and Corelli.

Handel made a very smart career move after recovering from a stroke in 1737. He began writing oratorios, the most famous of which is his Messiah.

An Amazing Handel Fact

Handel continued to conduct and revise his scores for the last seven years of his life. That’s pretty remarkable, considering he had lost his eyesight during that time. Thankfully, his friend, J.S. Schmidt, assisted him when necessary.
