Brushstrokes of a Gadfly

    Creative and impetuous, Katherine Walsingham has simple but grand plans after she receives her Masters degree in art--to defiantly strive for the highest ideals in her work contrary to modernist trends, and, like many artists, to open her own gallery, right in the heart of fashionable Manhattan, never suspecting the successes and triumphs, bumps and trials that will head her way.  Consumed with her career goals and not prepared to settle down just yet, she discovers life and love have a strange way of turning all her best laid plans topsy-turvy with bittersweet consequences, especially when she has caught the eye of New York's most eligible bachelor whose family has a dark and disturbing past.

Handel's Path to Covent Garden

(Batalha Publishers, August 2010)

         Many Classical music lovers are familiar with the composer George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) for his famous “Messiah” oratorio, but are not aware his preferred area of composition was Italian opera seria.   Biographical books explore his career as an opera composer and the rise of the new pious genre when Italian opera was no longer popular in London, but rarely do we find detailed accounts or discussions of that strange period in the 1730s when this shift in popularity forced Handel to leave the Haymarket theatre and join with John Rich at Covent Garden where he tried to carry on the Royal Academy opera company in competition with the new Opera of the Nobility venture founded by the Prince of Wales before he was finally forced to abandon opera in favour of the oratorio. This book explores this rocky transition period and how it affected Handel’s work, namely, his addition of French elements into his operas and other novel innovations in order to regain his chagrined public. There are discussions exploring the possibility Handel was his own worse enemy with regards to his business decisions as impresario-composer, alienating the Italians of London and his public, which nearly cost him his career.  A fascinating study for Handel admirers.
