Format: Paperback
Lang's book on Handel provides a sympathetic and detailed biography of the great composer and analytical summaries of his major works that takes the careful listener to new depths of understanding and appreciation of Handel's beautiful music.
As an ardent Handelian, I have read many books on Handel, but it is to Lang's work that I return repeatedly. He responds to Handel's work as I do, and his book, "George Frideric Handel," is worthy of being a life-long companion.

Lang clearly knew all there was to know about Handel and his times when he wrote the book. The style is sweeping, and is enjoyable for the average reader, yet detailed enough to satisfy a specialist. AND the book is valuable, not just because the information is correct, but because Lang uses his great knowledge of other composers and their music to make fine judgements and conclusions, which make the book unique. And he has a sense of humor, something you don't find so often in scholarly biography.
I read this on an iPad using the Kindle app. The lack of page numbers (only "locations") was a serious, constant irritant. It made me wish I'd bought the book through another source, and paid a few dollars more.

I purchased this as a gift for a professional musician. He is really enjoying it. While not light reading, it is an excellent read. I am looking forward to borrowing it Bach from him to read myself.
