Willem De Fesch


Born: 1687; Alkmaar, Netherlands   Died: 1761; London, England   Period: Baroque
The influences upon De Fesch's music were apparent. Melodic lines were influenced by the Italians, particularly Vivaldi. De Fesch was also influenced by Handel (though he held friendships with persons not favorble to Handel) but his shorter compositions demonstrate an individual character that can only be considered enigmatically De Fesch. The process of his works show periodization; compositions from Antwerp were expecially virtuostic -- though Read more simpler towards the end -- and London compositions can be characterized in terms of pastorale serenades, concertos and oratorios with English texts. De Fesch was not only an accomplished composer, as can be understood by the diversity of his music, but a virtuoso violinist as well. Read less
