330 years ago a prodigy was born in Halle to bestow upon humankind the ever so inspiring Baroque music: George Frideric Handel. His mastery continues to move people even today. The Handel House Foundation, who are coming up the annual highlight: the Handel Festival, creates a unique experience of this musical genius that suits visitors of any age.
“The most incredible thing about Handel is that we know so little and yet so much about one of the most frequently portrayed composers of his time,” marvels Clemens Birnbaum, director of the Handel House Foundation. However, his birthplace was identified without doubt, which today belongs to a foundation that sees a total of 90,000 interested visitors taking to the museum as well as the Handel Festival annually.
