Book: Charles Jennens: The Man Behind Handel's Messiah - Ruth Smith
Librettist of some of Handel’s greatest oratorios, Charles Jennens was also a pioneering Shakespeare editor, a generous benefactor and friend, a political outsider and a complex personality. With over 60 illustrations, many never previously published, this is the first ever biography of the man who originated Handel’s Messiah.
Book: George Frideric Handel. Ein Hallenser In London - Julia Semmer
Book: Handel's Will
Facsimiles and commentary, edited by Donald Burrows.
On 1st June 1750 Handel wrote out two copes of his will, which he subsequently amended with four codicils, the last one only a few days before his death in April 1759.
In this book the two original copies of the will and codicils are reproduced in colour facsimile, along with other documents relating to the administration of his estate.
Book: Handel: The Man and his Music - Jonathan Keates
Jonathan Keates original biography of Handel was hailed as a masterpiece on its publication in 1985. This fully revised and updated new edition charts in detail Handel's life, from his youth in Germany, through his brilliantly successful Italian sojourn, to the opulence and squalor of Georgian London where he made his permanent home.
Book: Hendrix at Home - Christian Lloyd
Our new Hendrix Flat Exhibition book. Exclusively sold here!
Jimi Hendrix called the flat at 23 Brook Street, in London's Mayfair, 'my first real home of my own'. He arrived here when his fame as the greatest rock guitarist of his era was at its height. But the period also marked a time of re-assessment for him, as he searched for new directions in which to take his life and his music.
By focusing on this key moment in Hendrix's extraordinary story, using extensive original research, Christian Lloyd's book brings a fresh perspective on our understanding of Jimi Hendrix, both as a man and as a musician.
Book: Jimi Hendrix in London - Steve Rodham
Book: John Rich: The Man Who Built Covent Garden Theatre
John Rich (1692-1761) was the theatre manager who built the first Covent Garden theatre in 1732, and then ran it for 29 years until his death. Before this he had run the Lincoln's Inn Fields theatre for eighteen years, where he had his first major success with The Beggar's Opera. He was a major figure in London's theatrical life and gave his support for G.F. Handel, providing venues for performances of his later operas and oratorios.
For years John Rich was considered to be uneducated and illiterate. Recently his life and work have come in for new appraisal, challenging the previous depictions. This book contains much original research that cannot be found elsewhere.
Book: Messiah - Jonathan Keates
Jonathan Keates tells the story of the composition and musical afterlife of Handel's masterpiece: he considers the first performances and its place in Handel's output; he looks at the oratorio itself and its relationship with spirituality in the age of the Enlightenment; and he examines why Messiah became such an essential element in the national culture of Britain.
Illustrated with beautiful images, including the original score of the work, Messiah is a richly informative and affectionate celebration of a high-point of Britain's Georgian golden age.
Book: Pocket Guide to Handel - Edward Blakeman
The Faber Pocket Guide to Handel offers a detailed but accessible exploration of George Frederick Handel, his composition, and his legacy. A larger-than-life figure in his time, Handel's reputation has been less than steady since his death in 1759. Was he (in the words of Berlioz) just 'a great barrel of pork and beer', or (as Handel himself claimed) truly 'the master of us all'? This lively Pocket Guide goes in search of the composer who wrote the Messiah, Water Music and much more.
Handy for browsing and reference, key features include:
- Handel's life: year by year
- Handel's operas: a complete guide
- Essential Handel
- Picturing Handel
- Handel on CD and DVD
- Handel Online
Edward Blakeman assesses how Handel's works have stood the test of time and why they can still speak thrillingly to us today. With recommendations throughout for listening, further reading, and web surfing, this is the ideal guide for music lovers who want to discover the great composer for themselves.
Book: Starting at Zero - Jimi Hendrix
Despite spending just four years in the spotlight, the sheer impact and originality of Jim Hendrix's music placed him for ever among the musical giants.
Modest and intensely private, Jimi was shrouded in intrigue from the moment he came into the public eye, and the mystery has only grown with time. Much has been written about him by fans and critics. He did, however, leave his own account of himself locked away like a Chinese puzzle in his many interviews, lyrics, writings, poems, diaries and even stage raps. Starting At Zero brings all these elements together. The result is an intimate, funny and poetic memoir - one that tells, for the first time, Jimi's own story as only he could tell it.
