6. Handel to London
Several composers made other countries their home, but few embraced their new country quite like Georg Frideric Handel, who left his native Germany in 1712 to settle in London, where he stayed for the rest of his life. Perhaps a parallel with Ivory Coast national Wilfried Zaha, who made his debut for England last year?
