Visit to Handel House
- Handel & Hendrix in London |
Handel House was home to the baroque composer George Frideric Handel from 1723 until his death in 1759 and 2009 marks the anniversary of Handel's death. This elegant seventeenth-century house is where Handel composed some of the greatest music in history including Messiah, Zadok the Priest and Music for the Royal Fireworks. A meticulous restoration project has recreated as faithfully as possible the early Georgian interiors Handel would have known.
