Musical Genius Big Wig! George Frideric Handel (23 February 1685 – 14 April 1759) by Thomas Hudson. German-born British Baroque composer, famous for his operas, oratorios, anthems and organ concertos. He received critical musical training in Halle, Hamburg and Italy before settling in London (1712) and becoming a naturalised British subject in 1727. Handel's music was studied by composers such as Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Handel has been accorded high esteem by fellow composers then and now.

Georg Friederich Händel was born in 1685, a vintage year indeed for baroque composers, in Halle on the Saale river in Thuringia, Germany on February 23rd. From Germany to England – via Italy. Though his father had intended him for the law, Handel's own musical inclinations seem always to have been clear to him. At the age of 18, in 1703, he traveled to Hamburg, where he took a job as a violinist at the Hamburg Opera and gave private lessons to support himself.
