Listen and Download Some Legendary Water Music by Handel
Fans of water music seem to have plenty to choose from when it comes to the many composers of their classical works. What happens in water music is that the composers are basically directing one of their larger bodies of work and putting it altogether as one large piece of work. When it is plays it is usually very long and it is broken up into three parts. Water music is in a sense just a large concert by a classical composer. They have to go according to the rules of water music and put all the key elements together in their own way to make each suite complete.
It's not really known why exactly they call it water music, but it does seem to have something to do with making three suites that seem to just flow along like water as one long stream. Although there have been many other people who have tried to tackle completing water music there are really only three composers who are the masters of having dominated in this area and of those three there are really two that stand out from that trio. Those three are Handel, Telemann and Cage.
Of those three, Handel is definitely the forerunner and is the most widely known for his water music over any other composer in the known world. If you have never heard any of his water music you are definitely in for a great treat as we are going to mostly present his works here within this article.
