Handel: Dubourg

George Frideric Handel once attended a concert in Dublin at which the English violinist Matthew Dubourg performed a brilliant solo, wandering through complex modulations in an improvised cadenza before returning at last to the tonic. Handel, delighted, is said to have expressed his approval at a volume heard throughout the theater: "You are welcome home, Mr. Dubourg!"
