Handel's Water Music
In 1717, England’s King George was suffering in the polls. His political advisors suggested that he do something big to get the people behind him. They came up with the idea of a summer boating party on the Thames, and Handel wrote the music to accompany the festivities. Arguably the most popular piece of Baroque music today, Water Music is memorably tuneful and makes fashionable use of the dance forms popular in that day, combining festivity and finesse.
