London Daily Post 4 April 1741. L'Allegro, Il Pensero ed Il Moderato was composed by Handel in 1740. The first two parts interweave settings from Milton's two complementary poems, L'Allegro (The Merry Man) and Il Penserose (The Thoughtful Man), celebrating the different joys of two opposed personalities, mirth and melancholy, through images of an idealised English countryside. Revival. Sponsored by American Airlines.
