My Name is Handel: The Story of Water Music
Music by George Frideric Handel
London Philharmonic Orchestra
When Handel, the brilliant young German composer living in London, needed to get back into the king's good graces, he had a brilliant idea. He composed a suite of dances, hired a boat and 50 musicians, and headed down the River Thames to surprise King George I. The music became known as Water Music, one of Handel's best-loved compositions.
My Name is Handel: The Story of Water Music includes a 24-page activity book that contains the history of the harpsichord and organ, words to a sing-along song, information about Handel's life, puzzles, and more!
The London Philharmonic performs music from Water Music, Messiah, and Rinaldo throughout the story.
This album is the recipient of The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval GOLD Award.
