Here for the first time it is now possible to enjoy in full the lively first-hand descriptions of eighteenth-century theater from the papers of philosopher and musician, James Harris (1709-80). These contain many new anecdotes about Handel and his music, exchanges of letters with famous performers (including David Garrick) and engaging reports of concerts, plays, and operas in London, Salisbury, Durham, Madrid, Berlin, and St. Petersburg, all of which contribute to fascinating insights into contemporary eighteenth-century musical life.
