Product Notes

This film was originally shown in 1985 on British television to commemorate the 300th anniversary of Handel's birth. Written by John Osborne, it strips away what seemed like centuries of bad Handel performances and reveals a composer who burst upon London like a tornado and laid the foundations of an entirely different tradition of British music making - bold, brassy and brilliant. The words Osborne puts into Handel's mouth, moreover, although completely invented, are derived from a clever reworking of those texts which Handel himself had used in his various operas & oratorios.
