Mr Handel's Friends

10 November 2009 to 28 February 2010

Handel had many friends and admirers in London who collected, played and promoted his music, entertained him in their homes, and supported him in difficult times.  Through the private letters and diaries of the Harris family this exhibition explores these relationships and shows the many sides of the famous composer’s character and fortunes. Curated by Donald Burrows and Rosemary Dunhill.
