Towards 1693 the Opera at Hamburg was fortunately completely transformed from top to bottom by the great Kapellmeister Sigismund Cousser, who introduced reforms in the orchestra after the French model, and in the singing on Italian lines.

A wider field of activity was necessary. A similar collaboration assured it of being produced at Venice without trouble. These grand Biblical dramas would have been able to have awakened in the English nation an enthusiastic response, were it not that this attempt was damaged by a violent quarrel inspired by personal reasons, where art counted for nothing. There are five letters from him to Jennens dated June 9, July 19, August 21, September 13 and October 2, 1744, where he presses him to send at once the rest of the poem, expressing his own admiration for the second act, which he said provides new means of expression and furnishes the opportunity of giving some special ideas, "finally asking him to cut down the work a little, as it was too long" (see Schoelcher). Lubeck a young musician also going, like them, to Thus a French traveller, the Abbé Tolland, in 1702, expresses it. At the end of August, 1703, Handel entered the Hamburg orchestra as a second violinist.

They caused in truth a grand gathering of singers. From this period dated his Latin Psalms.  He has been claimed as an Italian disciple of Gluck—a curious criticism which is bestowed occasionally on precursors. His Recitative arioso takes an intermediate place between the oratorical recitative of the French, and the recitative secco of the Italians, and was one of the models for the recitative of J. S. Bach, and even not excepting Bach and Handel, Mattheson persists in seeing in Keiser the master of this style.—But the real supreme gift of Keiser was his melodic invention. He certainly commissioned Handel for the opera Florindo und Daphne, but he mutilated the work on its presentation "for fear," so he said in the Preface of the libretto, "that the music might tire the hearers"; and lest the public should find the work too serious, he intersected it with a farce in low German, Die lustige Hochzeit (The Joyous Wedding).

But it is necessary to take him for what he is, one of the most poetic figures in music—smiling, yet a little elegiac—a miniature Mozart eternally convalescent. In 1708 the English drama left the place and opera installed itself. the heart, and—in silence and solitude—converse with his God. There are not many nations that can say their national dish has become an international phenomenon. The melodies of Beethoven, which seem the most The Berlin Court lived a very short life of artistic brilliance between the wars of the Grand Elector and those of the Prince-Regent. But since 1735 he felt more than ever that the true musical drama for him was the oratorio. He proposed a suggestion for an enquiry on the Greek modes of Solmisation. Handel also wrote in July, 1746, for the return of the Duke of Cumberland, a song on the victory over the rebels by His Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland, which was given at Vauxhall (a copy of this song also appears in the Schoelcher Collection). Clayton had set it to music in 1711; and again about 1720 Benedetto Marcello wrote a cantata in the ancient manner on an Italian adaptation of the English ode by the Abbé Conti. Reinhärd Keiser was born in 1674 at Teuchern, near Weissenfels, and he died in 1739 at Copenhagen. a joy intoxicated with itself, twisting lines, and vocal arabesques, vocalizations, trills for the voice which gambol light-heartedly with the little wavelike arpeggios of the violins. ... father wanted handel to do what. Was Alessandro Scarlatti still in Venice when Handel met him? She left England in April, 1734, to join her husband the Prince of Orange in Holland. Whilst Handel, despite his marvellous feeling for plastic beauty, often treated the voices as an instrument, and in his development the beautiful Italian lines occasionally became weighed down by German complexity, Porpora's music always kept within the bounds of classic purity, though the form was a little uninteresting in design. At the end of the summer of 1728 he went to Italy in search of new arms for the strife. He was an extraordinary person, who travelled in the East, wrote a history of the Ottoman Empire, composed tragedies, translated Voltaire, founded the "Beech Oil Company" for extracting the oil from the wood of the beech, mixing it with chemicals and using it for the construction of ships. Whilst Handel was at Halle watching over his mother, he received a visit from Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, who came on behalf of his father, to invite him to come to Leipzig. made a journey together to Lubeck to hear the renowned organist, Dietrich Buxtehude. It was necessary for him to catch up with his times. He quitted Halle in the spring of 1703, and guided both by his instincts and by a preference of his master Zachau he betook himself to Hamburg, the city of German Opera. Redmond Barry (Ryan O'Neal) is a young, roguish Irishman who's determined, in any way, to make a life for himself as a wealthy nobleman. At the end of 1716. It decided the victory of the Italian Opera in London, and when the singer, Nicolini, who took the rôle of Renaud, left England he carried the score to Naples, where he had it produced in 1718, with the aid of young Leonardo Leo. For those who know these joyful works, which dominate like two Colossi the two oratorios of victory, this superhuman effort had the effect of a force of Nature, like a field which breaks into flower in a single night of springtime.  In the springtime of 1738 he began to feel, with returning strength, confidence in the future. spontaneous, cost him years of thoughtful work In that he was one of the first artists in Germany, and the Mozart of the first The great festival of his Commemoration celebrated at Westminster Abbey and in the Pantheon, from May 26 to June 5, 1784, for the centenary of his birth, was observed all over Europe.
