Phoebus & Pan

Handel and Bach tempted by pleasure


In Handel’s The Choice of Hercules the demigod is faced with a dilemma: should he follow the path of Virtue or revel in Pleasure? He is briefly enticed in the lovely ‘Yet, can I hear that dulcet lay’. Bach also wrestled with the stresses of moral decisions in his Der Streit zwischen Phoebus und Pan, in which Pan challenges Apollo to a musical duel.
