Notes & Reviews:

Hande's Water Music was composed in 1717 for the English King George I, who had requested new music for a concert on the River Thames. The king enjoyed the music so much that he demanded it be played in full twice more during the pleasure cruise!

Gramophone
This will be a hard act to follow.
