A fount of inexhaustible creativity, Handel more than any of his contemporaries embodies the spirit of his century. This native of Halle in Saxony, the son of a surgeon, ranged over the whole of Europe during the course of his life, bringing about a synthesis of musical cultures and styles unparalleled in the history of music. He was a prolific composer who left an indelible mark on his contemporaries’ memory, and over the centuries became synonymous with the musical genres on which he brought his genius to bear.
