George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) was born Georg Friedrich Händel in Halle, Germany, but he spent most of his adult life in England, where at age 42 he became a subject of the British Crown and adopted a new spelling for his name.  By age 7 he was already a skilful organist and pianist.  Although his father wanted him to study law, which he did for a time, he gave it up for his love of music. He is famous for composing 42 operas, 29 oratorios, and more than 120 cantatas, trios and duets.  He wrote an anthem (Zadok the Priest) for the coronation ceremony of King George II (1927) which has been played at every British coronation ceremony since then.  His most famous work is the "Messiah Oratorio"  with its "Hallelujah" chorus.

He married his teachers' daughter, Clara Wieck, herself an accomplished pianist.  He located to Leipzig (another city of Saxony), where he co-founded a music publication named "The New Journal of Music."  He produced 4 symphonies, an opera and other orchestral and chamber musical works. His most famous piano works are "Carnaval," "Kreislenana" and the "Traumerei."  All three continue to be part of current classical piano programs.
