English Handel & Hendrix in London

Handel & Hendrix in London (previously Handel House Museum) is a museum in Mayfair, London, dedicated to the lives and works of the German-born British baroque composer George Frideric Handel and the American rock singer-guitarist Jimi Hendrix, who lived at 25 and 23 Brook Street respectively.

Handel made his home in London in 1712 and eventually became a British citizen in 1727. Handel was the first occupant of 25 Brook Street, which he rented from 1723 until his death there in 1759. Almost all his works after 1723, amongst them many of his best-known operas, oratorios and ceremonial music, were composed and partially rehearsed in the house, which contained a variety of keyboard instruments, including harpsichords, a clavichord and a small chamber organ.

The museum was opened in 2001 by the Handel House Trust as the result of an initiative of the musicologist and Handelian Stanley Sadie in 1959. It comprises a carefully restored set of period rooms on the first and second floors of 25 Brook Street together with exhibition rooms in number 23, the adjacent house on the terrace. In 2016 the museum expanded to incorporate the upper floors of 23 Brook Street, home of Jimi Hendrix in the late 1960s.

German Handel & Hendrix in London

Handel & Hendrix in London ist ein Museum an den Wohnorten der Musiker Georg Friedrich Händel (1685–1759) und Jimi Hendrix (1942–1970) im Londoner Stadtteil Mayfair. Händel lebte 36 Jahre im Haus 25 Brook Street und schrieb dort viele seiner Opern und Oratorien, aber auch die Wasser- und die Feuerwerksmusik. Hendrix hingegen verbrachte nur wenige, aber ereignisreiche Wochen zwischen Juli 1968 und Februar 1969 in seinem kleinen Apartment im Nachbarhaus, 23 Brook Street.

Beide Gebäude tragen eine der berühmten Blue Plaques (deutsch „Blaue Plaketten“), das linke Gebäude die für Hendrix, das rechte die für Händel. Das Museum wurde als Handel House Museum im Jahr 2001 eröffnet und besteht in der gegenwärtigen Form seit Februar 2016.

Italian Händel House Museum

L'Händel House Museum è un museo a Mayfair, Londra, dedicato alla vita e alle opere del compositore barocco tedesco di nascita Georg Friedrich Händel, che costruì la sua casa a Londra nel 1712 ed alla fine divenne un cittadino britannico nel 1727. Händel è stato il primo occupante del 25 di Brook Street, che prese in affitto dal 1723 fino alla sua morte nel 1759. Quasi tutte le sue opere dopo il 1723, tra cui molte delle sue più note opere liriche, oratori e musica cerimoniale, furono composte e in parte provate in questa casa, che conteneva una varietà di strumenti a tastiera, tra cui clavicembali, un clavicordo e un piccolo organo da camera.

Il museo fu aperto nel 2001 dal Trust Handel House come risultato di una iniziativa del musicologo e Handeliano Stanley Sadie nel 1959. Esso comprende una serie accuratamente restaurata di camere d'epoca al primo e al secondo piano del 25 di Brook Street, insieme a sale espositive al numero 23, la casa adiacente della strada.
