||This program from the Famous Composers series introduces the life and music of George Frideric Handel, beginning with his childhood and early musical development in Halle, Germany. The film follows Handel to Italy, where he cultivated his serious interest in opera, and contextualizes the religious conditions that the Lutheran composer faced in the Roman Catholic country. Handel then moved to England where he enjoyed great success and the Royal Academy of Music was formed to support his work. The film demonstrates how Handel adapted to changing English tastes by turning from opera to oratorios and gained an important place in British culture.
