Handel - Largo from Xerxes

Sheet music for flute

Alt. Title: Ombra mai fu
Info: Often under the title "Largo from Xerxes", "Ombra mai fu" is the opening aria from opera Serse. The opera was a commercial failure, lasting only five performances in London after its premiere. In the 19th century, however, the aria was rediscovered and became one of Handel's best-known pieces.
Opus number: HWV 40
Date: 1738
Artist: George Frideric Handel
Born: 23 February 1685, Halle
Died: 14 April 1759, London
The artist: German, later British Baroque composer who spent the bulk of his career in London, becoming well known for his operas, oratorios, anthems, and organ concertos. Born in a family indifferent to music, Handel received critical training in Halle, Hamburg and Italy before settling in London in 1712; he became a naturalised British subject in 1727. He was strongly influenced both by the great composers of the Italian Baroque and the middle-German polyphonic choral tradition.
