New Perspectives on Handel's Music

Essays in Honour of Donald Burrows

Edited by David Vickers

  • Description
An international collaboration between leading scholars showcases a broad spectrum of observations on Handel and his music, covering many aspects of modern interdisciplinary and traditional philological musicology.
This international collaboration between leading scholars showcases a broad spectrum of observations on Handel and his music, covering many aspects of modern interdisciplinary and traditional philological musicology. Much like a baroque 'drama per musica', it is divided into three parts. Part I introduces the principal characters: Handel's musical works in different genres and diverse aspects of his musical style and creative practices, spanning his entire career from his first opera Almira (Hamburg, 1705) to his final oratorio The Triumph of Time and Truth (London, 1757). Part II develops complications to the plot: there is new information about the authenticity and chronology of works and analysis of musical, literary and documentary sources that encapsulate how a comprehensive variety of primary research is reported and evaluated. Part III is an examination of the broader context of Handel's music in relation to his contemporaries and collaborators that sits alongside reception studies. Covering a broad range of approaches in current Handelian research, this collection of writings will be a useful tool for baroque music admirers, performers, experts and students.

DAVID VICKERS is Lecturer in Academic Studies at Royal Northern College of Music (Manchester) and Council Member of the Handel Institute.
