'Händel is the greatest and ablest of all composers; from him I can still learn.' ~ L. van Beethoven |
'Händel understands effect better than any of us -- when he chooses, he strikes like a thunderbolt.' ~ W. A. Mozart
three things about Händel:
1. He's my favorite composer. I preffer him even to Bach, cause he's lighter, happier, less logical/mathematic. Everything to him is celebration, probably due to his strong operistic dimension.
2. Water Music & Fireworks are the perfect music to begin a joyful day with.
3. His religious music is solemn but not sad and exibitionistic. His measure and sense of atmosphere and mood is impressive.
