Countless richly decorated boats following the freshly crowned King George I, and behind him, Georg Friedrich Händel with his 50 musicians and the royal household: on July 17, 1717, the first suite of Händel's famous "Water Music" was performed in the middle of the Thames. His majesty took such pleasure in the music of the famous Händel that he had it repeated three times, twice before and once after dinner, although every performance lasted an hour. The boats full of people who wanted to listen were not to be counted. “Wassermusik” is still one of Händel's most popular works. It is therefore not surprising that the Festival Orchestra Göttingen admitted it into its program for its 10th anniversary in 2016. Conductor Laurence Cummings followed this arrangement of the single movements, as can be gleaned from the recently discovered earliest sources.
