When Handel, the brilliant young German composer living in London, needed to get back into the king's good graces, he had a brilliant idea.
He composed a suite of dances, hired a boat and 50 musicians, and headed down the River Thames to surprise King George I. The music became known as "Water Music," one of Handel's best-loved compositions.
