Handel: Water Music and Music for the Royal Fireworks
Cambridge University Press, 10.11.2005 - 155 Seiten
This Handbook covers Handel's best known public music, the Water Music, written at the outset of his English career, and the Music for the Royal Fireworks, the last and largest of his orchestral creations. The genesis of these two orchestral suites is examined in its political as well as musical context; practical questions of performance style and interpretation are balanced by an enquiry into Handel's compositional processes, and the relationship of his other large-scale orchestral compositions. Hogwood also inlcudes an account of recordings, editions and a summary of performance questions.
