Over his father's objections, Handel embarked on a musical career, and having made excellent personal and politically important connections, found himself in London as court Kapellmeister in Hanover at the age of 25. When George of Hanover became King George I, Handel received ample support and the adulation of many royals. Man and Music: The Italian Connection traces the path of this remarkable composer, presenting the context in which he produced such works as Water Music, his oratorios and operas. His relationships with the fiery opera stars of the period are featured.
