Scoreboard Bleeding
Hogwood intensely and carefully chronicles Handel's life year by year, beginning at his birth and continuing with his effects into the twentieth century.

From his Italian days to his real love with Italian opera and its failure to take hold of English entertainment to his renowned oratorios, Hogwood exhastively probes the history of the background and creative birth to his most known works.

A Lutheran, some of Handel's greatest works were Scripture inspired, e.g. Israel in Egypt and of course The Messiah. Intersting to learn of its debut in of all places, Dublin, Ireland. The subsequent Handel Festivals after his death growing to over 4,000 performers and audiences at a single setting of over 85,000 are astounding.

There is much to be gleaned from this reading, e.g. that Handel considered Messiah to be more of an Easter piece than its standard Christmas fare.

Excellent work by a significant performer, musiciologist and writer.

Aside from the well-research information on the composer--which is the most important reason for buying this book--there is Hogwood's always-accessible writing style, making this scholarly but without the usual scholarly heaviness. Highly recommended for those wanting to better understand Handel.

"Handel" is a carefully written, extensively footnoted biography by a fellow musician, who is considered a premier interpreter of this composer's works. It takes careful reading, but there are treasures within. One of my favorite anecdotes concerns Handel's wig:

"...Handel wore the Sir Godfrey Kneller wig: greatest of wigs: one of which some great General of the day used to take off his head after the fatigue of the battle, and hand over to his valet to have the bullets combed out of it. Such a wig was a fugue in itself." (Edward Fitzgerald, 1845)

Christopher Hogwood composed this biography from many original sources: letters; contemporaneous biographies; press clippings; court proceedings; paintings; and even a rather rude cartoon. He gently admonishes earlier Handel biographers for their errors, and presents both Handel, the genius, and Handel, the pig-headed Saxon bully, who once attempted to defenestrate a recalcitrant soprano.

It was quite enthralling to read about all of my favorite operas and oratorios, presented in loving detail, and scrupulously tracing all of Handel's `borrowings,' both from his earlier works, and from the compositions of others. Hogwood subscribes to Jonathan Richardson's defence of borrowings in the arts (1719):

"Nor need any Man be asham'd to be sometimes a Plagiary, `tis what the greatest Painters, and Poets have allowed themselves...indeed `tis hard that a Man having had a good Thought should have a Patent for it for Ever..."

Where Handel did borrow, he improved.

I highly recommend this biography to all lovers of the music of `Il Caro Sassone.'

I knew Christopher Hogwood as an exceptional musician and conductor, and now I discover that he is a superb historian and biographer as well. The documentary record of Handel's life seems thin indeed, but Hogwood makes the Maestro leap off the page. Hogwood makes intelligent -- even sparkling -- use of all he can uncover of Handel's life and a scrupulous analysis of the period to create a tapestry for us. His writing is erudite but "comeatable:". He engages us in a delightful conversation. This is a fine and illuminating work.

Christopher Hogwood's biography of Handel is a good starting place for readers who want to know the basics. The main events of Handel's life are set forth clearly and judiciously, as in the Grove Dictionary, and Hogwood makes sensible judgments about the music, something he is in an excellnt position to do. On the other hand, not much emerges about Handel the man and the milieu in which he lived and worked. Handel was a fascinating and complex character and the epoch in which he lived was in many ways the apex of a way of life that began to change radically not long after his demise. Some studies have appeared, but the synthesis is not there yet. Perhaps Hogwood should write another volume.

With the scarcity of factual data from this remote era, especially those personal in nature, it is hard for anyone to write a "complete" biography in a way that we have come to expect from more contemporary work. Sadly, there is no fix to this inevitable limitation. Granted a lot of preparation went into “Handel”, I see it mostly as a collage of quotes taken verbatim from other works with the glue between them being some analytical comments by the author. I enjoyed this approach and found it interesting at the beginning of the book. However, I soon found myself betting on how many consecutive pages I would read before another citation showed up. Rarely for most of the book was I able to get the count to 2 pages. Regrettably, this incessant back-and-forth switch in material provenance makes the read onerous.
On the positive side, the book certainly has a wealth of well-balanced information on Handel – I just wished it was showcased differently and infused more with the style of Mr. Hogwood.
It seems like a large portion of this book quotes earlier biographies. Hogwood approaches his narrative in a boring way, just agreeing and disagreeing with previous biographies. Only for Handel enthusiasts.
