Music for the Royal Fireworks - George Frideric Handel

George Frideric Handel (23 February 1685 - 14 April 1759) was a German-born Baroque composer who is famous for his operas, oratorios and concerti grossi. Born as Georg Friedrich Handel in Halle, he spent most of his adult life in England, becoming a subject of the British crown on 22 January 1727.

His most famous works include Messiah, Water Music, and Music for the Royal Fireworks. Strongly influenced by the techniques of the great composers of the Italian Baroque era, as well as the English composer Henry Purcell. Handel's music became well-known to many composers, including Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven.
