Allemande from Handel’s D minor Suite HWV 428, played on the William Smith (c1720) harpsichord at the Bate Collection in Oxford, by Douglas Mews. This instrument quite possibly was played by Handel himself and is certainly built in a style he would have been familiar with. Recorded at a Gallery Recital 25.5.13.
God Rot Tunbridge Wells – The Life Of Georg Frederic Handel.
A rather blunt and grumpy Handel looks back on his life and works. Handel is played by Trevor Howard. Period drama made in 1985 to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Handel’s birth. I don’t know a lot about Handel’s personality and whether he is being accurately portrayed here or not. I like the style though- it is as though Handel is talking personally to you!
