"You have to learn what needs to be learned and then go your own way."
Georg Friedrich Handel
Georg Friedrich Handel:
Concerto grosso in D major op. 6 no. 5 HWV 323
"Silete, venti", motet HWV 242
"Water Music" HWV 348 (excerpts)
Concerto in F major HWV 331
Handel's own path led him to London, where he was able to realize all of his ideas that were denied to him in Germany.
He was particularly successful in the theatrical field; so also with his "water music", which was played on the occasion of the royal boat trips on the Thames and made the excursions into events. A musical affinity with the "Water Music" exists in the Concerto in F major, which was written in a similar time and subject area. Freely following the pasticcio principle, both works are put together here ingeniously.
At the peak of his career in 1739, Handel wrote twelve concerti grossi in just one month, each of which is a masterpiece. The highly virtuosic motet “Silete, venti” is a rarely heard work, which is also the subject of enigmas related to the history of its composition. Although the manuscript dates from 1724, the work was not published until 1873; one can still speak of a discovery to this day.
