#1979700 - 10/28/12 02:55 PM High on Händel; Daria van den Bercken plays Händel

Hi there,

Last week I saw Daria in the Dutch talkshow Pauw & Witteman. She promotes the keyboardworks of Händel.

High on Händel (play High on Händel, second movie)

I was touched by her enthusiastic playing and talking. I went to a musicscore library some 15 miles away, took all keyboardworks of Händel and can not stop playing now.

The Händel works are so majestic and at the same time deep serene. Composed in logical forms. I enjoy it, I like it. After a long time of playing Bach's French suites, sonates of Haydn, Cimarosa etc also Händel fills the pianoroom. My wife asked me if there is no other music anymore. Thanks to Daria van den Bercken.

Best regards,
Johan B

This is FABULOUS!! I purchased a book of Handel's Keyboard Suites a few months ago. I have a CD as well. I won't be able to get started playing for about another year because of my busy work schedule. The links you provided are just what I need right now while I prepare to begin learning some of his beautiful works.

Thanks again for sharing these resources! smile

Johann,

It is so tempting to try some of these. However, I am determined to complete my work on Clair de Lune and 3 other challenging pieces before I take on any other new pieces. Right now I'm also working on Satie's "Gymnopedie" for the themed recital in mid November.

Which pieces have you started playing?
