George Frideric Handel

Biography

George Frideric (or Frederick) Handel (/ˈhændəl/; born Georg Friedrich Händel,German pronunciation: ; 23 February 1685 (O.S.) – 14 April 1759) was a German, later British Baroque composer who spent the bulk of his career in London, becoming well known for his operas, oratorios, anthems, and organ concertos. Born in a family indifferent to music, Handel received critical training in Halle, Hamburg and Italy before settling in London in 1712; he became a naturalised British subject in 1727. He was strongly influenced both by the great composers of the Italian Baroque and the middle-German polyphonic choral tradition.
