George Frideric Handel - The Triumph of Time and Truth
Document from the year 2010 in the subject Biographies, , language: English, abstract: The script 'The Triumph of Time and Truth' deals with life and career of George Frideric Handel starting with his early years in Halle, Handel's birth place, where he already got into music as a little boy by secretly playing a small clavichord on the attic. At Weissenfels, the court of the Duke of Saxony, the budding spirit of the ten year old firstly became obvious to an audience listening. His friendship with George Phillip Telemann led him to Hamburg at the very beginning of the 18th century. Here his genius became already visible and he began to develop his own particular style of composing operas which remained so significant for him for decades. In Rome, his next domicile, it was the oratorio beside the opera he focused on. The time he spent in Italy was most formative for his further personal development. The main focus of this script is on Handel's London years from 1711 to 1759 where his career reached its peak. Here it was that his entirely new creation, the English oratorio became such a great success. This almost half a century brought glory, crisis and wealth to George Frideric Handel.
