Das zitternde Glänzen der spielenden Wellen, HWV203
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Handel’s bubbly extrovert music in Das zitternde Glänzen der spielenden Wellen HWV203 conveys the sparkling brilliance of water rushing over sandy shores and riverbeds. Its principal theme foreshadows ‘How vain is man’ in the later English oratorio Judas Maccabaeus. Like the vivacious Flammende Rose, Zierde der Erden HWV210, it shares musical material with arias added for the soprano Benedetta Sorosina, daughter of George I’s agent in Venice, in the January 1725 revival of Giulio Cesare.
