The Life of Handel PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Life of Handel free pdf Gossipy and anecdotal, yet scholarly and impeccably researched, SchA"lcher's vivid biography of Handel must rank as one of the finest portraits of a musician ever written. This new edition has been completely revised and is profusely illustrated. We see in the contemporary newspaper reports, memoirs and letters, a man of great contrasts. While he could dash off the most sublime music at remarkable speed, he would bestow countless hours on revising the minutest details. He combined a fiery temper with great loyalty and generosity. Few composers have been so feted in their lifetimes, and yet Handel was also vilified and conspired against. Despite great success and royal patronage, he spent his years in London struggling to make a living. His determination, resilience and talent are remarkable and affecting. Victor Schoelcher (1804-1893) was born into a wealthy Parisian family of porcelain merchants. He was a politician, journalist, art critic and musicologist, but is mostly remembered for his role in the abolition of slavery in the French colonies. He also campaigned for women's rights and for the abolition of the death penalty.
