    Default 18th Century Music Blog

    To the interested, I have started a new blog on 18th century music. Yeah crazy idea since the classical music blog market is saturated. Anyway, I do that for the fun. At the menu, I will present some pieces (but also classical music news) based on themes or thematic days. Welcome and forgive my english (not really fluent in english). I want to reach the most people that way.

    At first, I discovered the wonders of classical music through the marvels of its baroque period and especially those from Mr. Handel, which explain my forum nickname. About 10 years ago, my interest leaned over classical period and Herr Haydn's production. The music bus recently drove me to the early 1800s. Where will it end?

    Interesting work, my fellow Handelian. Nice looking blog.

    I would suggest you could expand the Handel section by listing Handel's favourite genre; operas and oratorios, with a selection of favourite/recommended recordings. At the end of the day, people will only reach out to a composer by listening to their works, which they may not have ever done before, rather than reading about it.

    Thanks for the comment.... Well I try to keep the writing to minimum since my main goal is to share music. But I agree it would be a nice idea to have some "best of" entries for each composers.

    The Biber article is awesome. I really want a recording of that beautiful Requiem.
