Handel: The Man and his Music by Jonathan Keates

Regular price £16.99

Jonathan Keates' original biography of Handel was hailed as a masterpiece on its publication in 1985. This fully revised and updated new edition - published to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the composers death - charts in detail Handel's life, from his youth in Germany, through his brilliantly successful Italian sojourn, to the opulence and squalor of Georgian London where he made his permanent home. This is a must-read for anyone looking to purchase an extraordinary George Frideric Handel biography or searching for more specific information on his music, for example, the history of Handel's Messiah.
