"Handel also composed music just for instruments. It's easy to picture the excitement and grandness of a royal boat party in his most famous orchestra work Water Music."
Besides being a talented composer and musician, Handel was also a very generous person and donated lots of time and money for poor people. For many years he performed his most famous piece Messiah at a foundling hospital to raise money for babies with no parents.
Tongue-in-cheek humor and whimsical illustrations let children see Handel as a real person. This book traces the Handel's life as a son, friend, and composer with entertaining anecdotes.
This revised version includes the following new features:
A timeline of the composers's life
A map highlighting important places in the composers's life
A fun quiz that provides more historical information and tests the child's knowledge
A glossary and an index
