Music Composers

Georg Friedrich Handel-Part 14

The organist began to be impatient and at length, addressing the performer, told him that he was convinced that he could not play the people out, and advised him to relinquish the attempt, which, being done, a few strains from the ordinary organist in the accustomed manner operated like the sounding of the fire alarm, and emptied the church instanter.

Resuming, we find in Handel's career the following salient points as especially responsible for his unparalleled success:

The opposition of his father to his musical career, which made it the more attractive and desirable to the boy.

The "command" of the Duke of Sachsen-Weissenfels to devote the boy to the study of music, to which an humble subject like Handel's father could not make serious resistance.

The wonderful musical training received from a competent teacher like Zachau.

The intimate friendship with the highly gifted Mattheson, which was a continuous inspiration to the responsive young artist.

His sojourn in Italy, which added to his Muse all the charm and all the graces of the land "where the oranges blossom."
