The Borrowed Connection


The “Arrival of the Queen of Sheba” is one of Handel’s best-known works--and yet the main theme first appeared 15 years earlier in Telemann’s Concerto for Three Violins.  In fact, many of Handel's works freely use ideas (and sometimes complete melodies) he found in the music of other composers.

Some call Handel’s use of this music creative borrowing. Others call it plagiarism.

In this hour, a variety of examples that might support either case.
