In 1712, young German composer George Frideric Handel followed his princely master—the future King George II—to London, remaining there for the rest of his life. Reflecting on an extraordinary life and career, conductor Jane Glover recounts how Handel established himself in a competitive musical scene, while creating such works as Water Music, Zadok the Priest, the opera Alcina, and his masterpiece, Messiah. "Glover brings all her knowledge and experience to bear in this thorough and revealing work about the prolific and prodigious George Frideric Handel. Lush and illuminating—a lovely structure built on a solid foundation of research, expertise, and affection."—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
