Barockstar tells the story of Handel's life as he journeyed through baroque Europe, leaving Germany for Italy and experiencing Florence, Rome and Venice, before arriving in London to begin the career that would bring him a worldwide reputation. The film shows the original locations in Halle, Rome, Venice, Florence and London that Handel himself visited. Stars and specialists in today's baroque music scene and descendants of Handel's friends and sponsors talk about their encounters with the maestro and his work, including Christopher Hogwood and Alan Curtis, Andrea Marcon, Trevor Pinnock and Howard Arman, Sandrine Piau, Christine Schäfer and Klara Ek, Handel specialist Donald Burrows Prince Ruspoli-Sforza and Princess Claudia Ruspoli. Handel's music is performed by The English Concert, the Händelfestspielorchester Halle, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and Il Complesso Barocco.
