George Frideric Handel (1685 - 1759)

4/5. Between the accounts of the Water party in 1717 and February 1919, there is no mention of Handel's activities in the London press. He was, during this time, composer in residence at Cannons, the magnificent palace of the Duke of Chandos in Edgware, where he composed music for private performance, completing one his finest works of the decade: Acis and Galatea.

George Enescu (1881 - 1955)

4/5. A Romanian Music: The interwar years were dominated for Enescu by the completion in 1931 of the first major Romanian opera, Oedipe, which he had laboured over for more than two decades. During a period which was to prove difficult in his personal life he also wrote several pieces with a national style in mind, by attempting to reflect in music the soul of his people, rather than quoting folk tunes. With Donald Macleod.
