Georg Friedrich Händel 1685-1759

Along with Johann Sebastian Bach, that other great genius, Georg Friedrich Handel represents the ultimate in baroque musical achievement. He was born in Halle in 1685 and - unlike Bach - enjoyed an international career that took him first to Italy, then to England. Every year, Halle honours its most famous son with a prestigious international festival.
